Boat-Owners please join us for the first in a series of VYC Skippers Meetings, at Portsmouth Yacht Club, Sunday October 6, at 6:00pm. This Skippers Only Forum is convened & co-hosted by Bob Janson & Maureen Tolman (leading the Salty & the Fresh Fleets of VYC).
Our ambition is to enliven & expand the VYC fleets & the club at large. First step: Make participation in VYC something that enlivens & expands your enjoyment of your boat.
Do you know boat owners outside VYC who've thought about joining? Were they tentative about how to get integrated into the club? Please encourage them to attend Skippers Meeting as your guest. (Most of us know a few.)
This is "Skipper Networking" but not an eating/drinking social-mixer. We are an information & decision forum, exclusively defined by priority concerns of boat-owners.
MO for our meetings will be to exercise the decision/execution style familiar to Skippers, ie:"Lets get it done. & Get it Done Now!" Consistent with this MO, we are not a committee, nor will we be serving as an advisory subcommittee.
On land, as on our boats, Skippers have sole authority & control over their boats & any role they might offer to VYC. Consistent with this standard, Skippers Network need report only to each other, & within VYC we will support fellow skippers in ways relevant & desirable to us.
First meeting will be for: asking questions about how the club operates; learning how VYC can better serve Skippers; & implementing improvements to better accomplish the goal of serving Skippers' & engaging more boats in VYC activites.
More details for this & future agendas will follow your RSVP. Ask questions, now or anytime. Please join us,
