AGENDA

1. Officer reports:

Rob Miller, 2nd Vice Commodore: We had a great year of windsurfing at the Cal Sailing Club. We taught approximately 1000 people to windsurf this season. We had some great intermediate and advanced windsurfing clinics throughout the season. We have eight new senior windsurfers. A big shout out to all the folks that made the lessons happen this year! Especially to Tom Trippe and Will Spargur for showing up week after week to do the beginning lessons, you guys rock! Thanks to Sofien Soheri and Peter Najim for running a summer long series of freestyle clinics. A big thanks to all the folks that kept our windsurfing fleet afloat, especially for repairing all those catapult damaged noses (our number one board repair :^(. Week after week, I saw Michael McKinley, Carl Caven, among others repairing the boards that we love to sail.

Yves Parent, co-Rear Commodore: We taught 6 sailing fast tracks this year and will teach 6 more next year; we’ll be holding a senior study group in the spring. Big thanks to the regular keelboat teachers: Michael Faw, Michael Kelley, Sheldon Coad, Caryl Woulfe, David Frasier, Steven Burchick, Marshall Lomboard, and many more!

Barbara Kochan, co-Rear Commodore: Big thanks to all those who taught windsurfing so much this year, and we’re always looking for teaching suggestions!

Sophie Horiuchi and Michael Moore, co-Port Captains: Big thanks to our wonderful dayleaders for helping keep members safe this season and ensuring that memberships are up to date before people use equipment. We’ll keep our dayleaders on up to Winter Break, and have volunteer dayleaders during Winter break on non-lesson days.  Big thanks to our VDLs this season: Yves, Lon, Tudor—please check in with Sophie if you want to be a VDL, or are already rated as one!

Seamus Vanecko, co-1st Vice Commodore—we bought two new dinghies this year, the Venture and RS500, which have been very popular. Big thanks to Felipe, Lon and Ben for putting so much time in repairing our dinghy fleet!

Heidi Kearsley, Vice Commodore: For all the successful open houses this year, big thank you to all who skippered and pitched.  And huge thank you to the wonderful food crew at Open Houses and this GMM!

Kevin Rendueles, 3rd Vice Commodore: The keelboats have been great this year; we did purchase a new vessel—Portugal Princess (Commander) to add to our fleet. Thank you to Sheldon Coad, Yves Parent, Greg Sweriduk, Michael Faw, Carla Co and Guarav Saple for putting in so much work to repair our fleet of Keelboats—our boats are not young!

Peter Kuhn, Treasurer, had printouts of the Quarterly Financial at each table; the report had been posted on the website prior to the meeting:

Quarterly Statement of Financial Condition Nov 1 2012

2. Dues Increase—ExComm has moved to increase dues to those listed below and are putting it forward to the General Membership for a vote:  

$99 for quarterly membership

$89 for student/senior quarterly membership

$297 for annual membership

$66 for minor membership

$149 for quarterly family membership

Discussion: we need to increase dues to match our levels of offerings: novice and advanced equipment use, novice and advanced sailing and windsurfing lessons, repairs and maintenance for the equipment and the associated operating expenses for the club.

Opposition: some club members felt the increase was too much and a more modest increase should be made; their concern was that more casual users might balk at the $99 price point.

Of 103 members in attendance at time of vote, 92 voted in favor, 5 against, and 6 abstained.

The dues increased was passed with over 2/3s majority vote in favor.

 3. Officer Elections

The following members running for the uncontested election received unanimous approval of members present:

Sophie Horuchi and Michael Moore for co-Port Captains

Stephanie Evans for Secretary

Peter Kuhn for Treasurer

Yves Parent and Barbara Kochan for co-Rear Commodores

Kevin Rendueles for 3rd Vice Commodore

Rob Miller for 2nd Vice Commodore

Heidi Kearsley for Vice Commodore

There was one vote against Seamus Vanecko and Michael Scalet for co-1st Vice Commodores, cast by Seamus himself at his wife’s insistence; otherwise, unanimously approved (sorry, Seamus).

The position for Commodore (currently held by Jennifer Kroon) was contested by Todd Price. The majority vote went to Jennifer Kroon.

That concluded the club’s official business, and we went on to announce the pie contest winners and watch Captain Ron,.

The winners of the pie contest:

1st prize went to Andrea Searay with her Apple Berry pie

 2nd prize went to Jerika with a Sour blackberry walnut pie

3rd prize went to Leslie Forero with her caramel sea salt tartlets

4th prize went to Katie with a sweet potato pie

Thank you everyone for coming!  See you in February for the next GMM!

2012-06-03 ExComm Meeting

In the club house, 6:30pm.

Executive Committee members present: Jennifer Kroon (Commodore), Adam Bertsch (1st Vice Commodore), Rob Miller (2nd Vice Commodore), Yves Parent (co-Rear Commodore), Stephanie Evans (Secretary), and Peter Kuhn (Treasurer). Also present: Michael Moore, Jane Morson.

Officer reports:

None.

Agenda:

Since the election at the General Membership Meeting failed to attract a quorum:

1. Adam Bertsch (AB) moved to nominate Todd Price as 1st Vice Commodore, Rob Miller (RM) seconded —received 2 votes.

2. RM moved to nominate Adam Bertsch and Michael Scalet as co-1st Vice Commodores, Jennifer Kroon (JK) seconded —received 4 votes.

3. JK moved to elect Michael Moore (aka Bucky) as co-Port Captain along with Sophia Horiuchi, RM seconded —received 6 votes.

4. JK moved to elect the remaining officers: Jennifer Kroon (Commodore), Heidi Kearsley (Vice Commodore), Rob Miller (2nd Vice Commodore), Kevin Rendueles (2nd Vice Commodore), Yves Parent and Barbara Kochan (Co-Rear Commodores), Stephanie Evans (Secretary), and Peter Kuhn (Treasurer). Stephanie Evans (SE) seconded, unanimously approved.

5. AB moved that he and Michael Scalet (MS) be approved to spend up to $1,000 to fly to Portland to test sail the RS Venture as the new lesson boat, and, if they think it’s good, purchase one to bring back to the club and test over the summer. 

Discussion: We want a boat that is stable and fun (like the Bahia), but not too-low performance like the Precision.  AB & MS are focusing on the lesson/training boat over a performance boat (a replacement for the JY-- the RS500) they’re considering as the RS500 is already well established and won’t require as thorough testing as the Venture; and our club needs good training boats for our novice and junior members to thrive. The Bahia hulls are hard to fix (no solid weld or repair like you can do with a fiber glass hull), s while they're durable, once the hull is compromised, they quickly decline. PK’s concern about the RS Venture is that we don’t know if it is selling well (it is an expensive boat at $14,325 in a depressed economy) and may stop being manufactured; this may mean we will not be able to complete our fleet and/or get replacement parts from RS as it ages.  We’ve also experienced some unreliableness from this vendor in terms of delivering on time. PK proposed that George (the vendor) bring the Venture down to us, and we, plus Cal Adventures (who has also expressed an interest), and possibly TISC will test it out. If we like it, we’ll buy one to test for the summer.  In terms of time seriousness, AB wants to get a full summer with the Venture to see if it’ll hold up to our conditions here in the Bay and how students will do with it.  If we wait another summer, the Bahia fleet will have aged another year and we’ll have to buy more boats at once, rather than gradually buying a new fleet and keeping our fleet mostly 'fresh'. When we bought the Bahias, we had let the prior fleet degenerate so much that we had to buy 8 Bahias in one year.  We’d like to avoid that.

Due to the concerns about the cost of flying up to Portland to test the boats, and the vendor’s somewhat unreliable history, no one approved this motion. 

RM moved that we amend the motion—the vendor brings one Venture down for us to test, and if he won’t agree to bring it down, then AB & MS are approved to spend up to $1,000 to go to Portland to test sail it anyway, but not to buy on the spot and instead discuss with ExComm once we have more information about the Venture's production prospects/RS's commitment to the boat; JK seconded—5 voted in favor, 1 opposed.  Approved.

PK moved to approve the following senior projects:

Yuri – repairing boats.

RM seconded, UA.

Jane Morson wanted to have it on the record that Sypko Andreae had recently passed away, and had been an involved and highly respected sailor and teacher at CSC. 

Sypko will be remembered as a kind, patient and sure sailor and teacher.

6. JK moved that we adjourn, RM seconded, UA. Meeting adjourned at 7pm.

2. Jennifer Kroon (JK) moved to approve the following senior projects:

Cyrille Pauthenier – will be working as a website administrator to help us secure the site. 

RM seconded, UA.


3. PK moved to approve spending (as money is available) up to the amounts listed under Expected Operating Expenses and Expected Capital Expenses in the budget approved at the 4/22/12 ExComm meeting. (The budget is in the Annual Financial Statement and Budget to be distributed at the General Membership Meeting). If the club finds a dinghy or dinghies to purchase this year, we may rearrange the budget DBW grant to omit the purchase of a Commander mast.

RM seconded, UA.

4. JK moved that we approve Joshua Leihe’s dinghy cruise to circumnavigate Treasure Island, using this safety plan he proposed:

Safety Precautions:

1.     Every participant of the cruise is required to have a radio, whistle, flashlight and a wet suit.

2.     A club keelboat will accompany the cruise to carry provisions and lend assistance if necessary.

3.     We will round the island in full daylight before heading into Clipper Cove for a potluck dinner.

4.     All boats will be thoroughly inspected for damage and repaired if necessary.

5.     Every participant sailing on a dinghy will be either a senior or an extremely advance junior skipper.

If permission is given, he will assess weather conditions on the day of the cruise before making the final decision on whether or not to round the island.

RM seconded, UA.

5. Sheldon Coad:

Lockers behind refugee kitchen are being used to store dinghy maintenance parts as well as food, pots, and pans.  The locker was built specifically for keelboat sails as they’re well ventilated and are the 12 ft long that our keelboat sails require.  We will have new sails coming in that we will need to store and we cannot store them in the keelboat or dock boxes (they will never dry that way and will rot) and there’s not enough room in the board hospital.  Peter Kuhn proposed we move the bytes to the roofa dn build a new keelboat sail locker in that space in the yard. The issue is that those will be challenging to access when all the dinghies are parked in the yard.  Jennifer Kroon moved we dedicate the tool shed (West of the club house) to keelboat supplies and sails.  Kevin Rendueles (KR) seconded, UA.

6. Mark Playsted:

Proposed a dinghy cruise to China Camp in the coming months, on a weekday (most likely Friday) to keep dinghies free for lessons and general use on weekends.

Safety Precautions:

  1. Every participant of the cruise is required to have a radio, whistle, flashlight and a wet suit.

2.     A club keelboat will accompany the cruise to carry provisions and lend assistance if necessary.

3.     All boats will be thoroughly inspected for damage and repaired if necessary.

4.     Every participant sailing on a dinghy will be either a senior or an extremely advance junior skipper.

Yves Parent (YP) moved we approve the cruise, JK seconded, UA.

Co-1st Vice Commodore

Adam Bertsch and Michael Scalet had proposed we allot $20,000 for the year to purchase one new training/teaching-oriented boat (similar to Bahia), and one higher performance boat (similar to JY15). 
This was not included in the budget for next year, but we do not have affordable prices for these boats yet, anyway. Michael and Adam are considering the RS Venture (currently listed ~$14,000 per boat) for teaching boats and the RS 500 (currently listed ~$11,000 per boat) as the performance boat--but the current price is cost prohibitive.  They'll have to see what kind of discount CSC could get and revisit this proposal to purchase new boats to replace current fleet if we can bring the price down to an affordable amount.

Agenda:

1. Jennifer Kroon (JK) moved to approve the expenditures listed in the Treasurer's report, Adam Bertsch (AB) seconded (2nd), unanimously approved (UA).

2. JK moved to approve the following senior projects:

Eugene (Genya) Bolotin - pig roast for open house

AB 2nd, UA.

4. JK moved to approve 2 Introductory Sails to be held at the Tidewater Boating Center in Oakland (dates TBD) as a pilot for partnering with the East Bay Regional Park District. The Introductory Sails will happen on a weekend day, following the same requirements as our current Introductory Sails (or Open Houses). Cruising skippers would sail 2 keelboats and 2 dinghies down (or tow or trailer dinghies) to offer rides. If it goes well, we may do 2 more.

Discussion: EBRPD is VERY interested in partnering with a community sailing organization at Tidewater. There are some issues with the location for CSC, we would not be able to duplicate what we have in Berkeley, but it is a good opportunity. If we are willing to partner with them at Tidewater, it could lead to other opportunities at other Parks locations. They have also said that they have a couple grant writers on staff that might be able to provide us with support.

Rob Miller (RM) 2nd: 5 voted yes, 0 voted no, 1 abstained. Approved.

One member suggested we consider Marina Bay as an alternate CSC location.

5. RM moved that we hold the next GMM on Sunday, 5/13 at 1pm (very low tide) in the club yard. YP2nd, UA.  Heidi Kearsley will work on entertainment and food details.
