--- Incoming Commodore Jody Erickson
THIS WEDNESDAY: INSTALLATION OF OFFICERS
If you’ve never been to one of these ceremonies, come on down to the Club for a special and sentimental time. Beginning at 6:00 p.m. Wednesday
, October 3, the BYC Blue Gavel/Past Commodores organization takes responsibility for swearing in our new officers and trustees. PC Joe Coons
, who has served as MC of the event for many years, always includes a brief history story in the presentations…and it’s also a time when our newest Past Commodore Troy Curran
may present some special awards, and our incoming Commodore Jody Erickson
, will tell you some of her plans for the year.
Of course, the bar is open, but primarily it’s a time to honor all these Members who give their time to make the Club work. And we’re hoping that ALL the incoming officers and board, and also those that are carrying on in old jobs will be on hand as the torch is passed. See you there!
(For those involved in the ceremonies, suggested dress is a blue jacket with grey slacks and white shirt if possible. You can find hints about many BYC events in your Roster, section 1B, page 10.)
SAILING REPORT: RACE THIS WEEK!
Nine boats showed up for the Marmetta Cup this last weekend. After a slow drift towards Eliza Island the wind filled in briefly but allowed the fleet to consolidate and enjoy a bit of a "re-start" before reaching off towards Chuckanut Bay. Congratulations to Jack Gerity
and the crew of Extreme
for finishing first. Because of the staggered start, if you were out there, you know how you finished, it made for a lot of fun!
This weekend will be the Annual race around Jack Island, it is sounding like there will be quite a few boats on the scene. Get your crews together and come join us! Skippers Meeting will be at Gate 3 at 9AM. --- Bart Maupin, Sail Fleet Captain
