A word from the Commodore
We can be proud of our club!
The peacefulness of the place and the special character of our Club House make the Club an exceptional site for sailing enthusiasts. But it is a unique place thanks to the Members and the cooperative spirit that is center to our organization.
In fact, volunteer work and the mutual aid spirit are a basis of our Club. Therefore, each member’s involvement in the various chores is essential to ensure the enjoyment of the site and to ensure that we maintain a welcoming harbour. Each member is encouraged to participate in the Club’s life by contributing to the various committees and activities. The Board of Directors counts on a dedicated team to ensure that operations, planning and management of the Club take place, so that we can all enjoy the best possible sailing season.
I wish to thank every member, officer and the committee managers for their participation to the life and the evolution of our Club.
Have a great sailing season!
