The 2015 Annual Dinner at Paragon Restaurant was the perfect stop to celebrate the winner of the Cruiser and Racer of the Year awards. The 30 members and friends swapped stories of the 2014 sailing season and ideas for boat projects we would like to complete, before the 2015 season gets underway.
Rick Allen presented the Cruiser of the Year trophy to Scott and Christine of Seascript in recognition of their work in organizing the Cruising program for the last several years.
Chris Owen went over the Racing schedule for 2015 and invited others to join the racing fun. He announced that David Sanner of Queimada was the winner of the Racer of the Year for 2014.
Cory Jackson, our Treasurer, gave the financial update – we have enough money to pay for this dinner, let’s move on.
The major event of the evening was the announcement of Scott and Christine’s engagement – we congratulate them and wish them every happiness.
We thank those who supported the Fleet activities in 2014 and hope to see new and more faces during 2015.
Thanks to Rick, Chris and Cory for their efforts in making Fleet 1 a success
We thank Lynn of Rollover for organizing the dinner again in 2015.
Best wishes for the 2015 sailing Season
