Dear WSA Members,
Here’s proof that our club continues to grow and gain prominence in Santa Monica Bay. I am proud to report that for the first time, in 2015, the Commodore of the Association of Santa Monica Bay Yacht Clubs will be serving under the WSA burgee. AMSBYC is an umbrella organization that addresses issues and causes common to all yacht clubs and boaters in Santa Monica Bay.
On January 11, WSA Communications Director and Staff Commodore Christina Tarantola will be installed as the Commodore of ASMBYC. This will be the first time that the Commodore’s club affiliation is WSA, although other members of WSA have served as ASMBYC Commodore in the past, most recently Kellie Fennessy (CYC) and Dana Hutton (SCCYC).
All WSA members are invited to attend this prestigious event: The ASMBYC Installation Luncheon and Awards Ceremony will be held January 11 at California Yacht Club. Registration begins at 11:30 and the Luncheon begins at 12:15. Tickets are $45.
To RSVP, contact Kellie Fennessy at kelfen [at] mindspring.com. I hope to see a strong WSA contingent at this installation.
Commodore Debbie Feinerman
Thanks to the dedication of its members and the generosity of George Maronich, WSA’s decorations on George’s My Time 3 earned WSA the “Best Organization” award for 2014. The theme for the parade reflected the 50th anniversary of Marina del Rey Harbor and WSA’s decorations included a large, illuminated “Happy 50” and a lighted replica of the marina’s iconic lighthouse.
WSA extends its gratitude to George, Vice Commodore Debbie Feinerman, and all the WSA members who donated their time to bring it all together.
A festive evening with friends.
Mark your calendar for December 9th and our annual holidays event. Enjoy a deliciously catered Mediterranean Feast with your fellow members. We look forward to seeing you!
This year’s Linda Elias Memorial Women’s One Design regatta was a great success.
Sailed under clear skies in good winds, the competition was intense and well-matched. First place went to the Southwestern Yacht Club’s team and WSA’s entry finished in fifth place, scoring two exciting “bullets” on the final day of racing. To learn more, read the November issue of “Gal’ Warnings” and visit the Regatta Network results page.
The Notice of Race and Sailing Instructions were officially posted for the Linda Elias Memorial One Design Regatta to be held October 18-19.
Hosted by Long Beach Yacht Club and sponsored by the Long Beach/Los Angeles Women’s Sailing Association, this annual event highlights all-female crews racing against each other in LBYC’s beautiful Catalina 37s.
