SE moved to approve, Sophie H 2nd, UA

Port Captain:

All paid day-leaders are done working for the fall semester and will not work during winter vacation. We held several VDL trainings to create VDLs to cover shifts, and Sophie will try to recruit new hires at UC Berkeley to cover the lesson days during the winter. Special thanks to the VDLs who have worked so far, especially Sean, Lon, and Peter who have covered multiple shifts.

2nd Vice Commodore:

The hospital was at least temporarily cleaned out of damaged boards,
for the first time in a long time.

We are selling off a load of older gear this week. This will raise
a little money and help us rationalize gear in 2014, especially for
novices.

Novice boards continue to be a concern (even after ones have been chosen to be discarded). Review shows that we'll need to do additional repair
in January to fix some coarse problems.

Interviewing various senior and regular windsurfers to
get a feel for board usage and other concerns.

Rear Commodore:

Last cruising skipper study group meeting this Tuesday night at BYC.
We have just recieved an offer from a BFD associate for CPR/first aid training/certification at a very good price. Paul Gabet is working to schedule it for January.
Finalizing 2014 Fast Track schedule. I'm planning for 5.
Will find someone to run a senior study group this spring.

Big thanks to everyone for working hard and giving treats to Stella!

 

 

 

Rear Co-Commodore; Yves Parent and Will Spargur: The Sr. Cruising Skipper study group is going great. We’re going to have free CPR training. We have lots of windsurfing instructors for junior testing and want to thank them all. We still need more Advanced Instructors.

 

 

 

3rd Vice Commodore: Kevin Rendueles; the keelboats are looking great. Thanks to the many volunteers who work to help the aging fleet working. We’re in need of someone who can repair motors. Please contact Kevin.

 

 

 

2nd Vice Commodore: Rob Miller is stepping down after several years on ExComm. Thanks to all of the windsurfers for a great year.

 

 

 

1st Vice Commodore: Seamus and Dan: Be sure to check out your dinghies for any damage before sailing them. Dan thanked Lon Dober for all of his help with repairing dinghies.

 

 

 

Vice Commodore: Lon Dober and Heidi Kearsley were excited to host the GMM and thanked all of the volunteers for helping to make this happen.

 

Port Captain: Michael Moore asked for more VDLs over the holidays since a lot of the Cal students will be on vacation. Remember: you get a free quarter's membership for EACH day that you volunteer daylead!

 

Co-Commodore: Jennifer Kroon: After 7 1/2 years on ExComm and 3 1/2 years as Commodore, it was a bittersweet evening with Jennifer announcing she was stepping down. She even took time to thank the new owners of the bait shop and encouraged everyone to shop there.

 

 

 

Co-Commodore: Stephanie Evans

 

I want to thank everyone for coming to the GMM! Thank you to all of the dedicated volunteers who put in hours teaching lessons and repairing our equipment, as well as thanks to all of our ExComm members, who work hard in the background to keep our club running. They go above and beyond the responsibilities on a daily basis.

 

 

 

An update on the dock: the barge is here to replace 4 pilings in the East and West Dock. The pile guide rings that go around the pilings will have sharp edges until the city comes down and puts bumpers on them, so please be careful when sailing, windsurfing, or kayaking on the east side of those two docks until the bumpers are in place.

 

I am running for Commodore and my plan for next year is to build on the already well-functioning club we have. I want to improve communications, by updating the Cal Sailing site to be easier to navigate and find important reference materials, as well as adding a blog and discussion forum. I will be working with the rating chairs to make sure the Junior & Senior written tests cover all the crucial skills, safe practices, and important operating rules, and that the practical tests are ensuring a standard baseline in practical skills.

 

 

 

I’ll also be focusing on the club rating more seniors next year by having a pipeline of up and coming juniors, and easier access to senior tests for those who are qualified and ready to test. 

 

We are also happy to announce there will be lifetime memberships for Joanie Pacheco, Rob Miller and Jennifer Kroon.

 

Orah Goldman is working with John Mann, Berkeley Harbormaster, to raise funs to dedicate one of two benches to deceased CSC member Todd Price. The cost is $2500.

1st Vice-Commodore: We're taking more measures to get members to perform repairs for damage they cause while sailing,  including messages to the list and communication via teachers during lessons and fast tracks.   Hiking straps and new rig tension lines are in progress for the bahias. 

Also, we're planning a maintenance clinic for some time in September to install such things.

2nd Vice-Commodore:

We have some great events to cap off the windsurfing season. We'll be having a junior windsurfing fastrack the next four Sundays in September. Anyone with a novice rating can sign up. Contact Sophie Horiuchi for more information. We are also having a three week J+ fastrack in September. These will be on Saturday afternoons at 1;30 behind the clubhouse. Contact Rob Miller at rjmiller@well.com for more information. 

Rear Commodore:

The Fast track season is completed. I will assess with others interested  and share the results of the season with omm members and set the rules and schedule for next season.

Thanks a lot to Lon in providing a lot of support, and thanks to all the coordinators who did an awesome job putting the courses together and running them.

Scott Wilson to run mid June Fast Track

Ike Kaludi to run July Fast Track

Rick Kosarchuk to run a keelboat MOB clinic (with real people)—please remember to let everyone (fire department, etc.) know that this is just practice, Rick!

2. Rob Miller (RM) moved that we approve the expenditures listed in the Treasurer’s report; Jennifer Kroon (JK) 2nded; UA.

3. Peter Kuhn (PK) moved that we approve the annual budget and authorize expenditure of funds listed in the budget; Michael Moore (MM) 2nded; UA.

4. PK moved that we repay the $6000 interest-free loan to the club for the 2nd RS500, contributed by the following club members, listed below; RM 2nded; UA:

Seamus Vanecko

Jared Brockway

Gunther Weber

Mark Playsted

Stephanie Evans

5. JK moved to approve that she (Jennifer Kroon) and Joshua Leihe be allowed to organize dinghy cruises in the Keelboat Cruising area, with the following safety parameters, listed below, in place; 8 voted for, 1 abstained; approved:

 

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.   Conditions will be assessed and final decision made the day of.

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.

6. JK moved that we allow Gunther Weber a one year extension (to Aug 2014) to complete his qualifying cruises for his Cruising Skipper rating; YP 2nded; UA.

7. JK moved to hold the May General Membership Meeting on Thursday, May 30th at 7:30pm; RM 2nded; UA. There will be elections at this GMM.

8. PK moved to approve the new operating rules that Robert Ofsevit proposed & add a 30knt wind limits on Senior sailors and above; YP 2nded; Discussion: we do not have an accurate gauge of the wind; it’s unclear whether it means consistently blowing 30 knts or gusting to 30 knts; why 30 knots and not another number? Would it limit our liability? (PK: other clubs don't even have rules, let alone wind limits); YP moved to amend that that limit be when gale force winds were forecast; Discussion: those gale force winds are for the entire bay, not Berkeley; the small craft advisory flag was flying at the time of the meeting and there was only 1 knt of breeze—the amended motion was not 2nded; vote on the original motion: 2 voted for, 7 opposed; motion failed to pass.

9. JK moved to adjourn the meeting; RM 2nded; UA.

Meeting adjourned at 6:50pm.
