The Arundel Yacht Club is a special facility and Club to be enjoyed by all members, and its success depends largely on the volunteer efforts of us all. As activity and use of the Club grows, it is important that all members respect our culture of safety, courtesy and respect. As such, the Board of Governors has outlined General Membership Responsibilities. I would appreciate if you would take the time to review and consider. Please click here to read. The guidelines have also been posted at the Club.
Hopefully many of you were able to enjoy the AYC/KRC Cocktail Party hosted by the Kennebunk River Club at their riverside club house this year. Since this event has an alternating schedule, AYC will be hosting in 2004. Don't forget the annual BOG Lobster Bake on Saturday, August 23.
ADULT LESSONS AT AYC
Captain Scott Akerman has been conducting Adult Sailing Lessons since the middle of July. Scott is a licensed captain with a life time career of sailing and teaching. He has logged numerous Atlantic crossings and has taught more than 3,000 people how to sail, including teaching the blind. Ask any AYC member who has participated in his class, and they will tell you, how lucky we were to have Scott as an instructor.
With corrected time the results were as follows:
DREDGING UPDATE A letter has been sent to the Army Corps of Engineers requesting a permit for dredging at the Arundel Yacht Club. The letter references our intent to bring the depth back to the original depth after the last dredging. We are still anticipating that the dredging will occur this winter. Quotes have been received for the replacement of the main train of docks. This will occur at the same time as the dredging.
Condolences to the family and friends of the following members who have recently passed away:
• Robert J. Scribner, father of Bob Scribner
• Chuck Forrest, father of Anne Raynor
It won't be long before we start thinking about next year’s yearbook. I've got some great pictures of the 2003 Boon Island Race and some of the participants in the Junior Sailing program. If you have other boating pictures or pictures of any of the AYC social events that you'd like to see included in the 2004 issue of the yearbook, please send them to me either at POB 629A, Kennebunkport or, if they're digital, e-mail them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Photos will be returned if requested.
Finally, it has certainly been nice to have Tim and Emily back with us for another season. Thanks to them for all that they do.
