This coming Sunday, December 15th, will be the second Bay Series of the season; running from the end of the stadium, around the island to just before the 2nd Street bridge. If you want to race, be sure to be here by 6:30 AM to get your form in. If you want to watch, the race goes off at 7:30 and breakfast/socializing starts once boats are off the water, shortly after 8:00.

From the By-Laws: “Only those members who have been a member for a period of at least six months… shall be eligible to hold elective office.” Nine (9) Board of Directors positions are available.
