As I look ahead to next year, I anticipate I will be spending much of my time in the Thousand Islands and elsewhere outside Toronto.
For that reason, I will not seek reappointment as Sail Captain of the MMM. The Sail Captain position will be vacant starting at the end of October 2021.
Please consider taking over this position and advise Julian of your interest. I will of course help the new Sail Captain as required.
Coming up in November the Sail group should:
apply for sailing venue permits (just Mississauga in 2022),
manage its equipment storage needs
manage its equipment repair needs
appoint or reappoint fleet captains for 2022
encourage member renewals
decide on 2022 regattas, engage volunteers and engage the CRYA and AMYA as required
do a preliminary 2022 sailing schedule, and adapt Notices of Regatta and Sailing Instructions to suit.
continue to liaise with the respective City facilities managers.
It has been an honour serving as your Sail Captain. Thank you all for your support.
MMM Sail Captain
I would like to thank David for everything he has done for our sail division. Not only is he a good sailor with a firm understanding of the rules, but he has brought a sense of discipline and rigour to our sailing that I trust we will be able to build on.
