Smith Regatta Results
Though the prediction for Saturday was for very little wind, we had a decent sea breeze and were able to
get in 4 races before 5pm. Below are the results. The Race committee; Mark Voigt, Rick Knerr, Tina
Mazanek, and John Gilbert, did a great job with the races, with the first one being the lone exception.
Mark decided to throw out one race and count everyone’s best three. See results.

Commodore: Adam thanked Kristin and Chuck for a rousing Wind Ceremony.
Vice Commodore: Kristin gave out airline booze for gifts for the volunteers. The event
made money. Kristin opened the floor for discussion on club paying for grassroots
rental. Discussion was shelved until board could discuss. However, it was noted we
missed Bradley who missed the event after all the hard work due to an injury.
Scribe: Bob thanked Kristin and Joe for articles in the newsletter. You too can get
thanked if you would just write an article. Minutes were approved.
Purser: Wright said we have money in the bank. Upcoming expenses are for infrastructure
such as getting the training trailer in tip top shape and drying racks. The Smith regatta
pays for itself and costs the club nothing. Our memberships are up to 69.
Other Business: Bob G. spoke about Corpus trip. Leah has butts for $35.
Training: Bob G. said all the dates are set for training. Bob requested $434.50 for new
training sail. Everyone approved.
Smith update: Bob G. said ACME Rhythm and Blues is the band and Shrimp or
Chicken are the dinner options.
NIMBY: Wright working with Juana’s to provide something for our regatta. We will be
yachting Friday afternoon. Book your room NOW.
Rum ‘n’ Root Beer: Rose needs people to help. Several in attendance volunteered.
Same people that always volunteer. Thank goodness for them!
