Other Business

Heiko is wondering about the possibility of purchasing another laser hull. Currently we have three hulls right now. If laser racing picks up in popularity, then buying another laser hull would be considered. Excomm needs to see more use of the lasers before investing money.

What about sanctioning laser racing on Sunday am at a different start?

Motions

 

  • Dinghy Cruises to Angel Island and Red Oak Victory
  • Jennifer Kroon's Cruising Skipper Rating

Dinghy Cruises to Angel Island and Red Oak Victory

Motion: Sr Skippers be allowed to take up to 4 JY's to Angel Island the weekend of October 6, to be met by anyone who wants to carry tents and stuff out on the ferry, and also they can do it on the 13-14th of Oct to Richmond to dock at the historic Kaiser shipyard and camp out on the Red Oak (bicycle accessible!).

Excomm will appropriate up to $500 to cover the camping fee of up to 4 skippers for both nights.  Crew, hangers on, rich dudes, and ferry or bicycle riders have to cover their own camping and meal fee.

The cruise is subject to the following rules:

  • 1. NWS SF Bay Marine forecast for that day, issued morning of departure, is not more than 20 kts max
  • 2. Cruising dinghy gear (see the operating rules) is on each boat.
  • 3. At least one Cruising skipper participates and briefs crews on shipping lanes, currents, that funny little area around Pt. Stuart and such.
  • 4. All CSC boats remain aware of sister boats locations and STICK TOGETHER.
  • 5. Boats go through Raccoon Strait and not venture south of Angel Island.

The Angel Island Cruise will have a keelboat accompanying them.

Peter moved, Matt seconded, unanimous online vote.

History from Paul Kamen:

Anyone interested in sailing a small boat to Angel Island and camping on the island for a night?

There might be a chance to do this on October 6-7, as part of the annual Bay Access "Sojourn."

Bay Access (http://www.BayAccess.org) is the advocacy organization (mostly sea kayakers) responsible for the SF Bay Water Trail now in the planning stages. Normally, camping on Angel Island is only by far-in-advance-and-very-lmited reservation. But for the weekend of 10/6-7, park management is allowing the Bay Access group to pitch tents at West Garrison, near the Quartermaster's Building. There's a small beach near the building suitable for landing beachable sailboats.

Bay Access seems to be interesting in expanding their support base to other types of boats beyond kayaks, so I think they would welcome participation by small sailboats, windsurfers, and other small craft. One or two of the BRCC dragon boats will probably be participating.

Cost is $30 per person payable to Bay Access. This covers insurance, park entry, and a year of Bay Access membership (a very worthy cause).

You will of course need ExComm approval if you take a CSC dinghy. Historically, permission for stunts like this has only been granted to Sr. Skippers with good dinghy credentials.

A week later, October 13-14, Bay Access is spending the night on the Red Oak Victory, the historic WWII cargo ship in Richmond. They are charging more for this, but it includes some meals. No beach access, but there might be a safe place to leave small boats overnight near the ship. Check the Bay Access website or email the organizers for more details if you want in.

(And, if anyone would like to officially represent CSC to Bay Access for event planning purposes, there is an informal meeting at BYC at noon on Thursday to work out some details.)

Jennifer Kroon's Cruising Skipper

I move, without reservation 'cause I've seen her skills, that Jennifer Kroon, having completed all requirements necessary, be elevated to the flag rank of Cruising Skipper without delay.

Allan moved, Auric seconded, unanimous online vote.

Agenda

 

  • General Membership Meeting
  • 3rd Vice
  • Dinghy Purchase

Set GMM date/locale

Chris is moving that the date is August 27th or whatever date Chris arranges at the Berkeley Yacht Club. Chris moved; Michael seconds, passes unanimously.

This is a change from the originally agreed upon date (the website needs to be changed. This may be the last meeting in which Jennifer Kirkland may cook but we have a few new people who may be willing to step up. Chris has volunteered to contact new cooks for the GMMs if needed. Regardless of the new date, we will have ample time to notify people within the 20-day limit (by Pam).

Appoint Edward Anelli co-3rd vice

(to work with Brian Buchanan)

Michael moves that Kestutis Sinkunas be removed from excomm b/c he has not come to any excomm meetings nor has he responded to emails; seconded by Jennifer; passes unanimously

Allan, acting in concert with the rest of excomm, appointed Edward Anelli as co- 3rd Vice (yeah!)

Discussion of possible dinghy purchase

From Gary:

After trying to get an answer from Sharon Day, VP at Catalina, for over a week on the purchase terms, I call Frank Butler, Catalina Pres. He says that I should work with John Schulthess of Wind Toys, our "local" dealer in Santa Rosa. I call John mid-week. He said he has already talked to Frank several times about our interest in the C14.2. Evidently, Frank didn't ask John when Frank added the 5% dealer fee to our price quote. John says 5% is not enough, and he will not do any warrantee work except at his shop, regardless of how much he makes on these (or any) boats.

I sent the following email to Frank yesterday, and left a message for him mid-day today, and he left a message for me around 5:30 this evening - saying he would call again tomorrow or Monday.

In sum, I have not completely given up hope, but given the difficulty we have had communicating and working out details of a boat purchase with Catalina, I would not be surprised - but will be very disappointed - if we don't arrive at a satisfactory arrangement.

So far, there is no concrete proposal for the Catalina 14.2's; until we have a concrete proposal (that includes a quote for their purchase and delivery date), Michael moves that we discuss this after we have a concrete proposal

Adjourn

Chris moved; Michael seconds; passes unanimously

EXCOM MEETING
Sunday June 17, 2007
Excomm Members Present Auric Hornemann Pam Crawford Lori Tewksbury Matt Jones Jennifer Kroon Brian Buchanan meeting called to order at 6:32 I. Senior Projects - no senior projects II. Motion to sell the 5th storage locker - Chris moved; Peter Kuhn seconded - passes unanimously III. Discuss the August general membership meeting date - discussion about location of GMM - at the club we would need a PA system, place for tables, etc. - possibly use conference room? - picnic area at OCSC? - Pam will investigate Spengers and Skates and will report back at the 7/1 excomm meeting - discussion about the dates - we had a previously approved date but apparently there is a conflict with the BYC and/or the cooks - previously approved date was August 6th - August 27 works for the cooks and BYC - concern about the cost of BYC - rental cost plus food (approximately $750) - concern that we pay more than other sailing organizations - concern about changing the dates from what is online as changing the May/June dates was a big deal - excomm will vote on the GMM date for August at the 7/1 meeting IV. Other business A. Pam has other business: A member who says he is a junior claims not to be able to find his card so he has no rating and no hours - this is not an isolated incident and the dayleaders would like some way to verify a person's ratings and hours (ratings especially) if a whitecard is missing - suggestions included having this listed in the log (like memberships), having the back of a person's membership card signed off in addition to the whitecard and having the membership chair keep track of ratings and hours - too impractical for membership chair to update hours - members could email the membership chair with their new rating and then the membership chair could keep track of it - no resolution reached on this item B. Matt has other business: We need operating rules for Capri - these are being discussed but nothing concrete yet - seniors are just taking the Capri out (without the "Capri checkout") - concern about the Capri sinking - no flotation on the boat yet… what about bolting the laserettes shut (already done) - little more difficult to handle in high winds than a commander, but not much - concern of if someone screws up - ensigns will swamp and still float (like the lidos) - shouldn't be a separate sign out for seniors - you can sail any boat so a separate sign out not needed - no resolution reached on this item - will return to this during the 7/1 meeting C. Jennifer is planning on re-writing the operating rule this summer (with lots of wine); Lori volunteered to help her with the re-writing (and the wine) V. Move to adjourn at 7:06 by Pam, seconded by Brian, approved unanimously

Motion: Approve improvements of the Hunters as Kestutis Sinkunas' senior project. He will replace the plastic gudgeons with aluminum ones, replace the rudderhead cheeks with thicker cheeks, and install mast plates to keep the main sail slugs on the mast. Peter moved, Norm seconded, passed unanimously.

JY Racing

Motion: Excomm shall officially sanction the JY races starting retroactively April 1st until November 24, 2007. No official racing rating will be required of the skippers. The races will be held Thursday evenings starting at 1700 until sunset and all club JY15's will be reserved for the races during that time. Jennifer moved, Peter seconded, passed unanimously.

They will be conducted under the simplified racing rules listed below.

JY Racing Rules:

  • 1) Port keeps clear of starboard.
  • 2) Windward keeps clear of leeward.
  • 3) The boat astern keeps clear of the boat ahead.
  • 4) A boat Tacking or Jibing keeps clear of one that is not.
  • 5) Avoid collisions. Racing Rules are defensive to prevent collisions not offensive racing tactics.
  • 6) If you gain right of way or change course, give the other boat time to keep clear.
  • 7) The inside boat(s) at two boat lengths from the leeward mark is entitled to room to round the mark.
  • 8) A boat that is backing up or not racing keeps clear.
  • 9) If you have violated a rule, take a penalty. A penalty is to turn a 360 degree circle with at least 1 tack and 1 jibe.
  • 10) No protesting or yelling is allowed. If you are fouled, kindly ask the other boat to do their 360 degree circle.

Whether they do or not, the matter is over. After racing is concluded you may scream obscenities into your pillow about how you have been wronged.

Auric Horneman's Senior Project

Auric is 14 years old, very responsible and has parent permission to be a senior. Motion: As a senior project, Auric Hornman will fix the cleats on the Capri (especially the halyards). Jennifer moved, Norm seconded, passed unanimously.

 

Foul Weather Gear Purchase

Jane has arranged for the club to be able to purchase high quality foul weather gear for at a very good price ($1500) to be used as dayleader gear and loaner gear. It is a tax write off for the company we are purchasing for.

Motion: Spend $1500 to purchase the foul weather gear. Peter moved, Jennifer seconded, passed unanimously.

T-Shirts

Jane has a lot of the club T-shirts to sell and suggests putting them on sale, as we need new T-shirts with a new design. T-shirts have made a lot of money for the club. She would like to bring them and sell them at the next General Membership Meeting.

Motion: Sell the rest of the current t-shirts as Jane sees fit. Jennifer moved, Brian seconded, passed unanimously.

Sean Seward's Senior Rating

Motion: Sean has met all of the requirements that excomm asked him to, so he will be reinstated as a senior skipper. Peter moved, Jennifer seconded, passed unanimously.

General Membership Meeting

We are supposed to have a General Membership Meeting with elections on May 7th, but there are problems with holding it then, because notifications did not go out 20 days in advance (which keeps it from being a legal meeting) and it is bad timing for our cooks (Jennifer Kirkland and Jerry Huff). There are several volunteers who can help and Chris Sears has volunteered to coordinate them for a May 7th meeting.

The proposed agenda is:

  • no host bar
  • dinner
  • officer reports
  • elections
  • dessert
  • mystery announcement
  • clean up.

Mystery Announcement

Discussion of the mystery announcement. Details will be added to the minutes after the General Membership Meeting, as we would not want to ruin the surprise!

Expenditure Approvals

Peter thought that excomm would need to approve up to $500 for sketchmobile motor repair but this is not needed as the repairs were under $250.

National Safe Boating Week

Jennifer has volunteered to coordinate these activities and is writing a grant through Calboating to help pay for these activities. Anyone who has an activity or who would like to help should contact Jennifer. We will need lots of volunteers! Jennifer will ask excomm for appropriations at a later date if needed but she is writing a $1000 grant to pay for this so she's hopeful she will not need CSC appropriations.

Dinghy Repairs

No discussion on this topic occurred.

Marley Morson Esq.'s Rating

Motion: Give Marley Morson Esq a free membership and bless his J+ rating as he has completed all of the required tests (slightly modified to accommodate his caninity) including demonstrated ability to consistently water start on both tacks. Peter moved, Jennifer seconded, passed unanimously. Congratulations Marley!

Cal Boating Attendee Memberships

Jennifer moves the we give Cal Boating meeting attendees free CSC memberships for good PR and more people to teach. It will not cost us much and they will still have to go through our ratings system.

Motion: Give the Cal Boating Aquatic Center Director meeting attendees free memberships. Jennifer moved, Matt Jones seconded, passed unanimousely.

Chair Appointments

Norm talked ot Tyler Elliot about taking over membership and he will take it. Also Pamela Crawford will co-chair ad chair to help Sophie.

Allan appoints Tyler Elliot has the new membership chair and Pam Crawford as co-add chair.

Spock 540

Matt Harvey nailed a Spock 540 today. Yea Matt! Kao Liang Chiew!

Youth Membsership

Motion: Excomm supports developing a youth windsurfing program that could offer 3-month memberships discounted to $1, to youth (under 18) whose parents/guardians vouch for their ability to participate in our programs like our adult members, and who will teach windsurfing on four Saturday mornings. Peter moved, Jennifer seconded, passed unanimously. (Note: this is not a fee change or fixed program but a vote to support development of a program that can help us expand our teaching program and help to get additional financial support from the City).

Adjourn: Peter moved, Jennifer seconded, approved unanimously.

Agenda Items:

  • Wetsuits
  • Laser Match Racing
  • Hunter 14.6
  • Catalina 14.2
  • Matthias Roeschke's Windsurfing Senior Project
  • Commander Improvements

Wetsuits

Motion: Spend up to $600 on new wetsuits for membership use. Matt moved, Jennifer seconded. Passed unanimously.

Laser Match Racing

Motion: Allow laser match racing to happen on Saturday afternoons. Peter moved, Michael seconded. Passed unanimously.

Hunter 14.6

Peter Kuhn moved to spend up to $12,000 to purchase two Hunter 146's. Jennifer seconded, passed unanimously.

At least half, and probably 3/4 of this amount will come from our DBW grant. The $12,000 budget includes the cost of all the parts needed to fit the boats out; the cost of the two hulls without sales tax or parts is $9,400. Our current budget provides $6,000 for one boat; that amount can be revised as long as the total remains $25,000. Based on our experience last year, Peter thinks DBW will pay the $9,400 direct cost (without sales tax or parts)for both boats if we reduce the number of dinghy dollies from eight to the five new ones that are under Lidos or Hunters, along with the three that DBW bought last year.

The Hunter 146 tested well on the Circle in typical summer afternoon conditions. It had good stability--it was hard to capsize, and came up easily. The JY15 style construction provides built-in buoyancy and toughness.

The boats will be fitted out with masthead floats, bow bumpers (to be sent separately), and filler between the rubrail and hull to reinforce the flange that holds the rubrail. We'll also replace the rudderhead cheeks and gudgeons, and beef up the mounting. Plus more anti-skid and handles to get back in. And anchors and paddles. But no bailers.

We also investigated the Catalina Capri 14.2, which is a fine boat that sails and looks better than the H146. Overall the C14.2 seems slightly less suitable as a trainer boat because of its lower resistance to capsizes and apparently less durable construction. We saw extensive cracks inside the 10 year old C14.2's at Shoreline Sailing in Mt. View. The quote we got for C14.2's is also ~20% more expensive than the one we got for the H146's. We feel it would make a fine racing and recreation boat, and a good trainer, but the H146 is slightly more appropriate for the trainer dinghy role that our DBW grant will support.

Catalina 14.2

Peter moved, Michael seconded, passed unanimously.

Matthias Roeschke's Windsurfing Senior Project

Motion: Retroactively approve last summers windsurfing delta trips as Matthias' senior project. Matt moved, Norm seconded. Passed unanimously.

Commander Improvements

Motion: Spend up to $9000 on the commanders to paint the topsides and bottoms, and to do any other work that needs to be done. Michael moved, Peter seconded. Passed unanimously.

Michael motions to adjourn, Matt seconded. Passed unanimously.

Bylaw Change

Current bylaw text:

Bylaws Article VII Section 3. Notice of Meetings: The Executive Committee shall give notice of the time and place of all membership meetings by first class mail, not less than 20 days nor more than 45 days before the meeting; such notice must specify the general nature of any business to be transacted which will require action by the members.

Motion: Approve the following bylaw change wording to send to the General Membership to vote on changing the bylaws.

Proposed:

Bylaws Article VII Section 3. Notice of Meetings: As required by Section 5511 of the California Nonprofit Public Benefit Corporation Law, the Executive Committee shall give written notice of the date, time, and place of all membership meetings; the notice must specify the general nature of any business to be transacted that will require action by the members, and the names of any candidates who are running for office. The Executive Committee shall give the notice of membership meetings

    (a) by email or US Postal Service, and (b) with an announcement posted at the club.

Peter moved, Jennifer seconded. Passed Unanimously.

Discussion: California law sets requirements for giving notice of meetings at which members elect directors or can take action. Since the last revision of our bylaws, the law was changed to permit use of electronic transmission. The law requires giving notice personally either by mail or electronic transmission, or (if there's no address for the member) at the corporate office or in a newspaper. First class mail is not required, but notice must be provided at least 20 days in advance if first class, registered, or certified mail is not used to give notice.

The primary purpose of this amendment is to reduce the cost of mailing notices to the membership at large. CSC has between 200 and 600 members who must be notified of the club's four general membership meetings each year. Printing postcards and mailing them first class to all current members will cost us $1,000 a year. About 90% of members provide email addresses.

Single Person Kayak

Paul Kamen would like purchase the blue, single person kayak

  • will fit in nicely to the Berkeley racing canoe center (dragon boat team)
  • he wants to buy the kayak and donate it to the dragon boat program
  • Peter asks Paul to leave signs in the clubhouse announcing when the dragon boat team practices

Motion: Give Paul Kamen the kayak for the dragon boat team. Peter moved, Matt seconded. Passed unanimously.

  • some discussion that Paul should also take a lido - lidos can serve as hot tubs
  • Norm needs the "hot tubs" for the fast tracks

Other Business

Norm has volunteered to organize the June 18 fast track

  • still need someone to organize 5/21 fast track

Brian moved to adjourn, Matt seconded. Passed unanimously.

Officer Reports

Allan (Commodore's Report): Thank you to everyone who has been coming out and teaching, and thank you to everyone who has been working to make the club what it is. We received a $25,000 grant from DBW, thank you to everyone who worked on it.

Allan (Rear Commodore's Report): we're about halfway through the winter doldrums and as far as I know lessons have been happening. I would like to thanks all those that have volunteered but I don't have their names.

We have started the Senior Wannabe study group. The first meeting was last Monday and the next one is this Thursday, 6:30 pm at the Berkeley Yacht Club, everyone is welcome to attend. This also applies to anyone out there who is already a Senior or cruising skipper that would like to pass on there knowledge to prospective seniors. We will probably continue to get together weekly, same time same place. The way to keep track is to sign up to the senior wannabe Yahoo group-see the postings around the clubhouse.

We need more seniors!

We have 5 fast tracks scheduled for this summer all tetatively schedule Monday through Friday evenings, the start dates are:

We have volunteers for three- they make great Senior projects!

  • 4/30 Pamela Crawford
  • 5/21
  • 6/18 Norm Thomas
  • 7/16 Gordon Stott
  • 8/13 Phillip Cannon

Fast tracks are a very important teaching format at CSC

We will be starting a cruising Skipper study group soon, announce,ments to be posted online and around the clubhouse.

Bylaws Change

Motion: Approve to send the following motion, change in bylaws, onto the membership a vote to change the bylaws for mailing members regarding the general membership meetings.

Motion: amend the bylaws to delete the requirement in Article VII, Section 3 that notice of General Membership Meetings be given by first class mail, and to require that notice be given by 1) posting a written announcement in the clubhouse 2) posting an announcement on the club's official electronic bulletin board and 3) delivering an email with the notice to every current member who has provided an email address for that purpose.

New Section 3: The Executive Committee shall give notice of the time, place, and agenda of all general membership meetings by posting an announcement at the club and on the club's official electronic bulletin board. In addition, notice of any meeting with an election or agenda item for voting shall be sent by email to all members who have provided an email address for that purpose, at least 20 days before the date of the meeting.

  • Lori suggests/wonders about sending out one mailing to the membership each year with all calendar dates (gmm, excomm, open house)
  • Bill mentions that the Secretary can spend $200-$250 without excomm approval to mail out dates to members
  • One reason to get rid of mailings was to save money
  • Lori/Jennifer can do the mailings anyways independent of the bylaw change
  • Peter will have hard copies of this change for the gmm

Peter made motion via email; Michael seconded. Passed unanimously.

505 Rating System

  • options include adding it to the advanced dingy or having a separate rating
  • by definition, all seniors can take out any club boat regardless
  • what about people who are advanced dingies, are qualified, but not seniors
  • Allan suggests advanced dingy minimum rating
  • lots of people have put in a lot of work on the boat - worry that someone else comes along, breaks it and leaves it

Motion: To sign out the 505, a person needs to have an advanced dinghy or senior rating and a special checkout by the committee. Allan moved, Brian seconded. Passed unanimously. Allan also appointed Jennifer Kroon as the chair of the 505 checkout committee.

  • Bill reminds us that we don't have to approve this b/c he's changed the manual three times before, but they SHOULD be approved by excomm
  • Bill wonders about what happens if Matt and Peter don't approve….. Someone else could revise

JY Parts

Motion: Approve Allan Champion $600 to rig out the last two JY's with trapezes, replace the wire on the one that is ridiculously short, buy some more slings for the JY's & 505 and one prayer to the deity of your choice that his back gets better so he can use the stuff after it's done.
