The survey is out! (See link below) I have already taken it and it is short as promised. It is my hope that everyone will take a few moments at your earliest convenience and fill it out. There are a few things I want to give a little extra context to:

  1. Your answers give you a voice as we will use them to help us to plan things like regattas, training and hopefully other opportunities we hadn’t thought of yet.
  2. I hope you give some thought to the survey section on leadership. Successful organizations purposefully cultivate leaders. The regular and orderly succession of leaders is not only essential for our long term success, it brings fresh ideas and energy into our here and now. Answering these questions doesn’t mean someone is going to wave a magic wand and make you a Race Officer or other leader. What it does mean is this:  If you have a will to learn and an aptitude for a particular role, there is a place for you to lead and the club needs you.
  3. The last question asks for additional comments. But don’t let this survey be the final word we hear from you. Ask questions, participate, be proactive, and sail fast in 2019!
  4. Finally, as an incentive to participate in this year's survey, we are giving away a goodie bag to one lucky person from all those completing the survey.  The survey will be open through January 31st.  The drawing will take place and the winner announced on February 1st. Good luck!


Let’s go sailing,
