2018 Yearbook sent to printers

Strother Scott on

Club News

The 2018 Year Book has gone to press and should be in the mail ‪in 10 days‬ or so.  The production process went extremely well this year, with only a few growing pain delays. The book content was created using our new Content Management System for the first time. The Division Commanders, Jim Raper, Caroline Garrett, John Galloway and Mark Wensell, report the process of creating and editing the Event Sailing Instructions was easy and painless.  

2018 yearbookOur new Executive Secretary Donna Mason did a great job working on the Membership Roster and Yacht Register database.   Her job is helped materially by the Member’s prompt return of the Member Data Sheets, which provide her information to keep the member database ...

Notice to Slipholders: Space Heater Update

Tracy Schwarzschild on

Club News

We have received some constructive feedback to the newly circulated lease provision banning the use of space heaters at the yacht club docks.  In light of that feedback, we have done some additional review and believe that the new lease restriction and related rules should be relaxed to address the concerns expressed by a number of slip holders.

Safety is our concern, but we recognize that each slip holder is ultimately responsible for the selection and proper use of equipment on board boats docked at the Club’s facilities. Accordingly, the Board has approved the adoption of a new Club Rule that will have the effect of nullifying the lease restriction on the use of space heaters and similar devices ...

Notice to Jackson Creek Slip Holders

Rob Whittemore on

Club News

All Jackson Creek slip holders will soon be receiving (or have received) their 2018 slip lease agreement. In a continuing effort to improve the quality of our operations and member experience, we have made some changes to the lease agreement. 

  1. The new lease will auto-renew and not need to be signed every year. Annual proof of insurance will still have to be submitted to the club.
  2. You will also notice the use of space heaters on any boat is now prohibited.
  3. Finally, the club now reserves the right to charge for electricity usage above and beyond a reasonable level. This change only applies to boats on the new east dock, which will have metered slips.

Additionally, we will also be ...
