Update on the Fleet
Happy New Year! 2019 is a new year on the calendar and a new year for the Ware River Yacht Club fleet. 2018 saw some improvements to the Club's sailing program. Looking into the new year, my first priority is the resurrection of the Adult Sailing Series. Plans are already underway, and the season will be here before we know it.
We also had a successful 2018 summer sailing season. We had a pretty good showing for our Adult Sailing Lessons. Several new and prospective members spent time on the water getting to know the ins and outs of sailing with our Commodore Steve Hanson. Under Clayton James’ leadership, the Junior Sailing program and the Virginia Governor’s Cup Regatta were each very successful. Some maintenance and improvement work was completed on both Snagglepus and Wagtail, our Club keelboats. Finally, a Siren 17 was added to the Club fleet, thanks to Tony Villani. I look forward to continuing to build the sailing program as we are carried by this momentum going in to 2019.
The goal of the WRYC fleet is to enhance accessibility to the wonderful waterways surrounding our Club. I look forward to working with you in 2019 to make that goal a reality.
See you around the boat yard!
