Well it’s been two months and I can tell you that we do not subscribe to the US Governments Paperwork Reduction Act!!! The good news is that the Fleet Captains and Secretaries have done a fabulous job getting clear and concise paperwork to the Central office, making the job easier.

Memberships for 2008 so far:

Isolated 46

I just returned from the Bacardi Cup. What a great regatta! If you haven’t had the chance to get to this one, please make an effort. Coral Reef Yacht Club and Tito Bacardi go out of their way to make everyone welcome, supply great racing and great partying. This must be added to your ‘to do’ list.

A quick note on sponsorship:

Some of us are lucky enough to have sponsors for our racing, as seen on the topsides and mainsails of our beautiful yachts. Some of us are not and that is okay.

The sponsors I am speaking of now are the regatta sponsors. It’s a fact that now days it is very difficult to put on a regatta without some sort of sponsorship, even if it is simply the host club not charging full price for hauling or race committee expenses. For this we should all be thankful.

We should thank our regatta sponsors by coming to the parties and the trophy presentations. We should also thank them by using (or at least trying) their products. We should thank the clubs for their hosting of our events and their membership for stepping aside so that we can have free reign of their club. We should simply be thankful and gracious.

A quick note on your patience:

Thank you all for being patient while the office transitions from many years of knowledge to not much when it come to handling the paperwork and daily duties of the Central Office. I have enjoyed meeting more and more of you in the few short months at this job.

My first job to tackle has been the memberships and having them all updated for the Log to go to press. Success! My next job is the approval of entries for the Worlds……keep your fingers crossed!

See you at the Worlds in Miami.
