Fleet Captain Report: October 2019

Ahoy, for the last time in 2019. As slowly as the sailing season began, the Summer and early Fall days sped by and we have now arrived at the final two sails of the season. The sailing events on Oct. 5 and Oct. 19 will both take place on Lake Geneva and have space at this time for additional crew. October is looking like a warmer than usual month this year, so make the most of these final opportunities and the Fall color in southern Wisconsin.

I’d like to thank all of our cruise captains, boat owners, and crew who enjoyed many memorable sails and companionship this year. Fourteen of our members shared their boats for close to twenty sails and eleven members donated their time as cruise captains to organize the sails. As a volunteer organization, the generosity of these members can never be overstated or over appreciated. Thank you!

I look forward to incorporating many of the ideas suggested at our September general membership meeting for improving various aspects of the sail sign-up and organization, and communication among all parties involved in the individual sails. I thank you for those ideas and suggestions and am always open to new ideas.

Have an enjoyable winter and think Spring thoughts.
