Amendment to July 29 Ex Comm Meeting Minutes:

  • A motion to amend the operating rules regarding our policy toward underage members was made. The motion proposed changing the operating rules to read:

"Section IV.12 Minors (under age 17) may join by obtaining special permission from the CSC Executive Committee and by having a consent form signed by their parent or legal guardian. Before sailing or windsurfing, members under age seventeen must advise the dayleader that a young member will be on the water. Members under age fourteen must have a parent or responsible adult present when they are at the club or on the water.

Section XI.5 No one under the age of 17 may obtain a Club rating without the approval of the Executive Committee. Under no circumstances may anyone under the age of 12 obtain a rating. No one under the age of 18 may obtain a Senior Skipper, Cruising Skipper, or Senior Windsurfing rating."

The motion passed by a vote of six in favor; none against; and two abstentions.
