Chinese New Year Weekend


In celebration of the Chinese New Year, several people enjoyed a buffet of Chinese food on Friday night instead of our usual hamburgers.

On Saturday, no dinner was planned but a rousing birthday/anniversary gathering for one of our newer members in the regatta room.  We all found out that Noah can actually cook a mean steak.


The winter Sunday beercans yielded several boats of racers and the resulting after-race gathering at the club on Sunday afternoon was lively.

Feb. 17th General Membership Meeting


We had a great turn-out for the General Membership meeting on Tuesday night.  Our speaker was Chester Santos, the “International Man of Memory,” who has appeared in many forums, including in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, San Francisco Chronicle, Washington Post, USA Today, PBS, CNN and various other television, radio and print media.  Chester is the 2008 USA National Memory Champion and came in to help us all with our memory retention (and most of us could use it).

He is right, I now can’t forget the list of words he gave us to memorize:  monkey, iron, rope, kite, house, paper, shoe, worm, envelope, pencil, river, rock, tree, cheese, quarters.  Even after 24 hours of trying to forget.

After Chester’s informative talk, we started the GMM meeting with an 8-bells ceremony for Maryann Byrd-Natly, our oldest member of the club, who left us in December of 2014 at the age of 107.

The board then provided reports and led discussions regarding the activities of the club.

Friday Night Prime Rib

We had a great turn-out for the Friday night Prime Rib dinner on the night before Valentine’s Day.  Those that missed it missed a great meal.  Lisa did a near perfect job on the roast.  Roughly 20 people enjoyed the dinner, including me.

Superbowl Sunday — Rescue of Smiley

About 50 people gathered on Sunday Feb. 1 to watch the Superbowl.  We had a great spread of appetizers and a great spaghetti feed with Sausages.  Thanks to Laurel, John, Yvette, Craig and others for pulling it together.  A great time was had by all.


Meanwhile, Z-mark was found and rescued by a dedicated group of sailors, including Vince, Mark Canton, and Yvette.  Thanks for getting the mark back.  Now if we can just find the tackle.

Commodore’s Ball

Commodor's Ball 2015 019

2015 Commodore’s Ball:

Thank you to all whom attended this year’s Commodore’s Ball.  We had great showing of 12 Past Commodores and/or their spouses in attendance.  Attendance was good, with 41 members and guest attending.   This is one of our most important meeting of the year where the new board is officially sworn in.  We look forward to higher attendance at next year’s event.  Overall, the evening was fun and the food was great from all accounts.  The evening concluded a bit early for most, while other sat around the bar drinking and enjoying the rest of the evening.

The Commodore’s Ball is typically followed by the Oyster Pt. Brunch Cruise, which was extremely well attended.

Much Fun Had by All.
