Cruising Captain, Tim Ehrlich

We have a member’s only opportunity. The NYC has 3 boats in Shoreline Harbor in Long Beach, CA. We are planning a trip to Catalina Island to attend the Jazz festival, October 19-22. There are 12-14 berths. This was posted on social media today. Tim will provide updates.

If anyone is interested in helping with the Christmas Party, please contact Tim via email at cemseller@gmail.com .  We need to find a location, set a date, etc.

 

 

Fleet Captain, Clay Ostrom:

The first race of the season will be the Darling Memorial Long Distance race. This has been rescheduled several times due to weather or lack of weather. Fred and Ron Darling were long time members and supporters of the club. This race begins at Boulder Beach and is a non-stop race to Temple Bar and back.

The Fall Series begins September 16.

Sail Training September 23-24. Volunteers needed.

SCYA has called to invite us back to hosting the Midwinter’s here at Lake Mead. We haven’t sponsored one in many years. In the past we had boats come from Arizona and California to participate, but that hasn’t happened in a long time. If we schedule this race it would be February 17-18, 2018. The SCYA will have a representative at the event. They will collect the entry fees and provide trophies (useful gift). The NYC would keep 15% of the proceeds to supply appetizers. Discussion on the floor – to be continued on social media.

An error was made on the NOR regarding race fees. The race fees are as follows:

Single Day Races           $30

Series Races (2-Day)     $60

Gold/Silver Cup              $60

Long Distance                $75

 

Clay and Lydia have made a connection with the current staff at Temple Bar. Recently they have not accommodated the club as in the past. No matter what time we arrived they would have food. We have been hosting a food share (potluck) on the courtesy dock.

October 7-8, Clay will be out of town and will need someone to be on the race committee boat. Mike Cox stepped up. Way to go Mike!

Treasurer, Lydia Brown – Absent

Secretary, Dena Williams

Copies of the treasurer’s report distributed. Copies of the July meeting minutes available for review. Motion on the floor to approve, motion passed.

Staff Commodore, Floyd White - absent

Naomi – discussion regarding feasibility of youth sailing program. There have been challenges. Which ages do we target – possibly high school; liability issues.

Reminder: Officer elections coming up – who wants to volunteer? Please notify Jim if you are interested 702-400-4616. We will be voting in October.

 

NEW BUSINESS:

Thirsty Thursday end with the time change. We can do Sunday fun day sails.

Ideas for future races: 1. Captain swap – The captain would switch boats and use another’s crew. 2. Jack & Jill hat draw for partners.

Question on floor about having meetings at the boathouse restaurant.

2018 membership dues will increase to $75.00

We are currently building an interest list for the Cataling Jazz Festival the week of October 12 - 16th.  Up to three Member's boats will be sailing to the festival and additional berths are open to NYC Members.  If you have any interest in attending on these dates please email Tim Ehrlich the cruising Captain Cemseller@gmail.com.

Boats going over:

George Johnson's - Avalon Blew III - Endeavor 40' Twin Stateroom Monohull (Leaving Oct 12)

Steve Shim's - Double Down - Fountain Pajot Catamaran (38?) 4 stateroom sailing catamaran (Flexible leave dates)

Tim Ehrlich's - Jupiter - Hunter 37' Twin Stateroom Monohull (Leave Thursday 12 or Friday 13 at 11:00a)

You can also reserve a spot on a boat or a hotel room and take the Catalina Flyer over to the event and meet up with us.

Another new guest attending, Bobby from CA was very happy to find a sailing club in Las Vegas and is available for crew.  Everyone is looking forward to attending the clubs events and more time on the water.

Commodore, Jim Rosaschi:

Copies of the minutes from the June meeting are available if anyone would like one.  There was a motion on the floor to pass the minutes. Minutes passed.

SCYA has called to invite us back to hosting the Midwinter’s here at Lake Mead. We haven’t sponsored one in many years. In the past we had boats come from Arizona and California to participate, but that hasn’t happened in a long time. Not sure if it would beneficial for us to host one.

Our next race coming up is the Nevada Cup Fall Series, September 16th.

At this point, we are cancelling the sailing workshop that is on the schedule and replacing it with the Beer Can races.

Old Business:

One donating two J24’s to NYC and the other was to challenge to Arizona Yacht Club to attend our races and we go there in return. Jim stated that the Board has voted to not accept the J24’s.  It is too much responsibility for the club to take on. As far as the races and going back and forth, we would have to develop a relationship to get this going.
