Thank you to everyone that joined us to celebrate CYC’s 74th year.
We elected the 2020 board. You can find the new team on bottom of our https://cycseattle.org/Contact page.
We discussed our mission: Promote amateur sailing and strengthen the sailing community thru volunteer actions of our members.
We reported on the four pillars that is our interpretation of our mission:
- Our Junior program is thriving with 200 kids on the water from our Shilshole clubhouse. Summer camp, opti sailing and high school sailing.
- Our Race program provided 104 racing days on Puget Sound and out of Leschi on Lake Washington. More racing than perhaps any other club in the nation.
- Our Cruising program had 86 boats participating across 16 cruises. My personal favorite was the Blakely Rock Low Tide Picnic.
- Our Social program ties us all together with more than 100 events. From informal Thursday cruising gatherings to recurring high profile talks including our signature Maiden event.
We reported our financial situation. In essence we realized all of above while balancing our budget. In order to keep it this way we need to do a $1 monthly dues raise for 2020. Less than inflation.
We reminded each other that all of above is made possible thru your volunteering and financial contributions. Thank you.
Finally we got a good reminder to nurture our business membership partnerships and highlight our value proposition. We have taken actions to follow up.
To learn more about our evening see our Annual Membership Meeting presentation here: Presentation from Annual Membership Meeting 2019.pdf And always feel free reach out to anyone on the board to engage, ask questions and volunteer to make the club better.
