Commander’s Message

Goals 2018: Education, Education, Education

Last week Hubby made a quick overnight trip to the boat to check to make sure all was well with her and that the predicted freezing temperatures would cause no harm. And now today the temperature is in the 50’s. Go figure! But this is the life of a boater. Prepare, be ready and be able to respond to the unexpected. After all challenges are only opportunities to “rise to the occasion!”

The Bridge has prepared a calendar of events for the upcoming year. Planning / providing social activities and educational courses to promote friendships and encourage the use of boating knowledge and skills learned.

Our first event will be our Change of Watch Valentine’s Dinner Party. Actually it is a re-confirming of our Watch. Thanks to our Bridge who have agreed to serve another year! And Valentine’s is an excellent time to show our appreciation to our significant others who support us in our commitment to and love of boating.

As I look over our planned calendar I can see a year filled with friendship, fun, and (you guessed it) challenges.

Fair winds and following seas!
