Letter from the Commodore – December

The Holiday season is in full bloom at our club. The tree is magnificent, probably one of the nicest trees I have seen and the decorations are top notch. Starting at 10:30 am on November 27th, 25 plus members worked throughout the day transforming the club into a Christmas wonderland. Rear Commodore Jock made sure all the lights worked-one light bulb at a time……….I was told that ‘for being a Commodore, I took directions very well.’

The Lighted Boat Parade is Saturday, December 10th. The good news is the evening is sold out. The bad news (if you can call this bad) is that there will be a $5 donation fee charged at the door. I know that a number of members are disappointed that we are charging a fee for the event since we eliminated cover charges for other events, but the fee goes towards the Sausalito On The Water Front Foundation in the form of a donation towards the fireworks that will be provided. Keep in mind that the cost is still $10 less than previous years. It should be a spectacular evening!


Sunday, the 11th is the annual Brunch with Santa and childrens Christmas Party, beginning at 10 am. Santa will arrive via Mercury around 11 am. Bring the kids and grandkids. The Club Holiday Party will be on Sunday December 18th at 5:30 pm. A hosted glass of wine (or two or three) will be provided along with passed hors d’oeuvres for all members. Please make it a point to come on down and celebrate with your fellow members.


SYC will end the year with a very festive and fun New Years Eve with excellent foot and entertainment. Make sure to get your reservations in early as the event will be another sell out. Urgent Call: The club is in need of a new Entertainment Chair for 2017. If you are up for the task or know of a member who you think would like to take on the roll, please reach out to a member or the Nominating Committee. Please.

Well, this is the last Commodore Letter I will be writing. For those of you who have taken the time to read these ramblings, I thank you. For those of you who have not, I thank you as well! And again, thank you for allowing me to serve you and our club as Commodore, it’s been a great ride.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays and may you and our dear club have a great 2017.
