Commodore’s Welcome

I am pleased to act as the Commodore of the Clear Lake Yacht Club during this, the 85th year of the club’s existence!

My family has been active in the yacht club for about 12 years.  Our children are all sailors.  Sailing is an excellent way for honing problem-solving skills and learning how to react calmly when the unexpected happens.  It’s an enjoyable activity that virtually anyone of any age can participate in and enjoy.

The Clear Lake Yacht Club has a long history as part of the Clear Lake community.  The Club offers members many benefits.  Whether it’s participating in the weekend club races or mingling with friends at the several social gatherings scheduled throughout the summer, being a member definitely enhances your summer lake experience.

This year we are fortunate to be able to welcome sailors from other lakes as they come here to compete in the MC Masters Championship.  This regatta will take place from June 18 through June 21.  There will be numerous ways that members can volunteer for this event.  Whenever we host a regatta and have sailors here from other locations, it provides us with an opportunity to show off, not only our club and its members, but also the wonderful Clear Lake community.

I also want to wish much success as sailors from our club pack up their boats and travel to other regattas.  Good luck and smooth sailing!!

I would also encourage current members to invite others to join the Club so that more people within the community can enjoy the many benefits of Club membership.

Iowa summers come and go quickly.  I hope that all of you enjoy your time at the lake this year!!
