Meetings

Regular membership meetings are held monthly, normally on the

first Wednesday of each month, at 7:00 PM.  Regular Board of Directors meetings are held monthly, normally on the last Wednesday of each month, at 7:00 PM.  A meeting schedule is posted on the Official Bulletin Board.  Board of Directors meetings are open to members.

Work Points

Each member is assigned a target of 125 points during each membership year.  Points for new members are prorated.  Failing to achieve point target by end of membership year will cause membership status to become inactive, meaning member can still use club facilities but would lose seniority when applying for dock and drysail space.  The member must document all points within 60 days of being earned.  The points list is posted on the Official Bulletin Board on the main floor south wall.  Points are earned as follows:

 

Attend monthly meeting                     10 points

Participate in a race or social event     2 points

Work details                                       10 points per hour
