WHSYC Members:


Best wishes for a Happy New Year and welcome to 2019!


We are looking forward to another great year of sailing and activities both on and off the water this year.  For those of you who made it to our holiday party it was great to see you and great to catch up on the off-season activities.  A special thank you to Curtis for securing Bay Shore clubhouse for the evening, and to Marty and Debra for setting up the catering for the party.  For those who could not make it, we held our annual elections and I am pleased to announce our 2019 board members:


Commodore: William Goodell; Vice-Commodore: Curtis Markley; Trustees: Gary Fung, Marty Lemon, Rick Liotta ( 1 year) and Deborah Altermatt. Past Commodore Nathan Zeigler, Debra Perala continuing as Treasurer, Deborah Altermatt as Secretary, Sam Steel heading Membership and Race, Marty Lemon and Bill Goodell for grounds completes the board.  


Welcome to the new board members and thank you all for the generous donation of your time and energy.
