It’s hard to believe that March has come and gone! The snow is finally melting away and it’s time to get excited for the 2015 sailing season. Just like previous years, the Board of Directors and I have several projects lined up for the 2015 season.

We’d love to share the details of these projects with you at our Spring General Meeting at 2:00 pm, on Sunday, April 19th, at the Waterloo Memorial Recreation Complex in Room 200.

To help us manage the meeting we ask that you send us an email to let us know you are able to attend.
