NEWS/Upcoming Events …

The last club business for the year is the upcoming Annual Business meeting that will be held on Saturday November 17th at the Huntington Branch Library in Shelton (41 Church St.) in the Hawley Conference room.  The meeting will be from 12:45 until 2:45.  All club members are welcome and encouraged to attend.  We typically review the past sailing season and plan for next year.

The club held our annual Awards Banquet at the Blue Goose restaurant in Stratford on Sunday (10-28-18).  We had a very good turnout and everyone had a great time as we closed out the 2018 sailing season.  We all took a moment to honor and remember the passing of our friend and fellow member Ken Bauser.  Awards were given out for the summer racing series and those results can be seen under the “Racing Series” tab.  A new and special award now called the “Commodores Discretionary Award” was given to Freddie Schneider for exemplary service to the club and for his commitment to racing by participating in 53 out of 54 races this season.

A slate of officers was nominated and voted in to run the club for the 2019 season.  The officers for 2019 are:

Don Ouimette - Commodore
Fred Goebel - Vice Commodore
Kenichi Tatsuno - Rear Commodore
Freddie Schneider - Secretary
Randy Carreira - Treasurer

Dick Chandler was awarded a club “Service Award” for all his years of service as the club Treasurer.  Thank you Dick!

The HMYC hosted the US1M National Championship this past weekend.  See the results under the “Regattas/2018/US1M” tab

It is with deep sadness that we must report the loss of our friend and club member Ken Bauser.  Ken had been a long time HMYC member as well as an accomplished sailmaker (KB Sails).  Ken was always very giving of his time and advice to anyone interested in sailing.  He will be missed by all…
