    all - with apologies for by protracted absence from the forum...
    that's 100% on me.

    Here is a short synopsis of the major updates:

    Don Martin is the in coming Commodore of the SSS.

    Jim Vickers will continue as race chair, as will the rest of the BOD in their current roles.

    Carliane is revising and updating our website.

    2019 Season Dates

    January 26, 2019 3 Bridge Fiasco
    February 23, 2019 Corinthian Race
    April 13, 2019 Round the Rocks
    May 11, 2019 Single Handed Farallones

    We'll get the 2019 season open with Registration for the 3BF in the coming days on Jibeset.
    as before, you'll be able to start your season membership through the 3BF registration.

    I agree that the challenges of commuting weeknight meetings is contributing to declining attendance and it needs to be addressed.
    moving the meeting start times to a more convenient commute time is a good start.
    I know Don has some good ideas on this as well.

    I need to raise my hand again and apologize for for my radio silence to date.
    Lot's of reasons for the long term "writers block".

    Thanks David!

    One comment: The Vallejo 1-2 used to be a week or two earlier and usually had better breeze. More accurately, there WAS breeze. Our races were moved to the third weekend to avoid Vallejo Yacht Club's Change-of-Watch dinner. I (for one) would like to see this remedied, perhaps by making it two weeks (or more) earlier.

    I realize the 2019 dates are already in the master calendars, but we have to bite the bullet and fix this or it just rolls along from year to year.

    For this year, the Express 27 Nationals are the week before, so that seems to be a conflict.
    Valejo is on their long distance championship calendar as well.
    We may be locked in to the dates.

    I take your point that the winds are demonstrably likely as not to be light by the time we get to mid-October.
    I'll let others decide if the date should move this year or next or at all.

    Default SH Farallones OYRA JR Waterhouse

    Hi, is there something that can be done to have the SH Farallones not at the same day as the OYRA Jr Waterhouse? Thanks for considering, Jan
