Commodore's Corner - July 2010
The NIMBY has come and gone and what a great time was had by
those that attended. I can’t say it any better than
WCF did in his email: Huge, nice hotel rooms.....Friday
yachting expedition to Cumberland Island.....Carnegie mansion
ruins.....pergolas and peacocks and wild, wild horses.....7.5
feet tidal range.....poolside martinis.....soft shelled
crab.....Dave's unwilling "bodyguards".....trebuchet.....Harp.....Saturday
scramble.....5 bags of ice each day.....long distance beach
start.....trying to set marks in 50 feet of water depth.....no
submarines in sight.....fighting 3 knot current.....black
quicksand.....tack-tack-tack back.....dodging 2nd floor
weddings.....Bahamian Iced Tea.....marsala.....dishwashing
tub.....AC on 60, fireplace roaring.....racing called on
Sunday (as usual).....impressive St. Mary's Pass (north
breakwater = 2.5 mi., south breakwater = 2 mi)......long
drive home in rain.....where will it be next year?.....
Thanks to Wright for once again chairing the NIMBY event.
The sailing was awesome and the Bahamian iced tea was a
palate pleasing libation!

Member-at-Large position. After the close of nominations,
no further nominations may be made. Keep in mind that only
1 individual from each member household may sit on the Board.

Our next event is the Rum and Rootbeer set for August 7.
I’m sure that our Chair, Bill Olson, and Co-Chair,
DJ Bobby G have a great time in mind for us all. Stayed
tuned to our 20knotsnob page for more information as August
