Deer Isle Yacht Club

Sylvester Cove, Sunset, Maine

Fall Commodore's Letter 2017

Dear Members,

After a wonderful summer here on Deer Isle,  I am happy to report that all is well with the Deer Isle Yacht Club and its facilities.

The weather continues to be excellent here in Maine but it is fall and things could and will change soon.

At the annual meeting this year Richard Gresham stepped down as Commodore and I have taken his place.  Richard was quite good at his duties as Commodore and It will be difficult to fill his shoes.  I will give it my best and carry on.

Jeff Wakelin stepped down as Harbor Chair after making an amazing effort to reorganize the mooring field. Along with David Decrow proper maintenance of moorings has been accomplished and the ongoing scheduling of mooring maintenance will continue.  A very challenging project for a volunteer organization.  Brad Laslett has stepped forward to become the new Harbor Chair and will, along with others,  take up the challenge of this project.

The Board of Governors as well as committee members have been busy dealing with other issues and projects concerning the Yacht Club. Our website,  thanks to the efforts of Bo Chesney, is up and running.  It is quite something offering news, history of the club, membership directory, calendar of events and more.   The site will also be useful for keeping track membership and legacy st.  Billing will also be an option offered and payments can be made by credit card on the site.

To view the Annual Meeting Minutes as well as reports from our Treasurer, Vice Commodore, and Membership report, please log in to the website at .
