2014 In Review
Message from Joe Hill, CYC's new Commodore .
This is a reprint of the "Message from The Commodore"
published in the CYC "Winter
"Happy New Year! A week in Chester
during this crisp fall weather is invigorating and uplifting.
Meetings with the Executive of the CYC are stimulating, productive and
The calendar is developing; it will
be a great resource, as we plan our summers, racing times and social
gatherings. Cester must have one of the busiest racing schedules of
almost any yacht club extant. We race almost every day of the week in
season; it is great fun! It would be even more enjoyable, if more of
the participants came back to the club after a race to enjoy the
camaraderie, have a bite and just hang out.
Did you know that the club has a
payroll of 19 people not including race week? This small town club is a
big deal and requires many hands, including volunteers! To provide the
services, racing and just plain fun, requires commitment, patience, a
whole lot of work and cash.
We have 200 paying members, which
include another 200 plus as part of a dues paying household. We need
more, so talk up the club and try to seduce your friends to join. As
you sit by the fire (or pool in Florida) think about who you know who
might be interested in joining. They will like it as much as you do.
Their names will be posted along with your names on the membership list
on the bulletin board.
Please send me an email
firstname.lastname@example.org - with questions and concerns. I will get back
to you as quickly as I can, addressing your point. Stay warm! Joe Hill
Editor's Note: I hereby nominate
Joe Hill for Honorary membership in the Chester Classic Fleet. He
provided the venue for our CCF party a couple of years ago. He is
(along with a huge group of relatives and friends) a frequent
specatator of our events. He and his wife Libby are
the skippers of the Izzy B, an icon of Chester
boating. Though she is powered by moter, she clearly qualifies as
a Classic boat. Without objection I am going to add her as an Honarry
Member of the CCF with Joe and Libby et al. as owners. JWWJR
