Welcome to the Mount Sinai Sailing Association!

Annual Awards and End of Year Celebration

Our annual awards and end of year celebration will be Saturday October 28th from 12:30PM-3:00PM at Amici's in MT. Sinai. We had a really good turnout last year and this is a good way to support your club as we conclude the 2023 sailing program. Also, your bridge is looking into subsidizing the cost of  the luncheon 100% this year for members. 

Like last year, appetizers will be served followed by lunch. Mike will cruise into the cruising awards for the year and then Barry will sail into the racing awards. 

Please RSVP by Oct 6th via this link (same as sent in an earlier email):  https://forms.gle/R1c15skjoDmWe8dC9

If you have any questions, let Jeff know. 

MSSA Bridge membership

MSSA Members,

It is currently sailing season - a favorite time of the year!
AND It is also a good time to think about sailing season NEXT YEAR.
=> Consider volunteering for a term on the MSSA Bridge.

You may have some new and fresh ideas for the club that you would like to see become a reality.  

You may have years of experience.  

You may be new to the club and looking for a way to get involved.

These are the offices:
Commodore - chair
Vice Commodore - racing
Fleet Captain - cruising
Rear Commodore - social events
Treasurer - money
Secretary - membership
For more details about a given office, please reply to this email, or contact any of us.
The current Bridge is doing our best to "keep the lights on" and keep things running on the heels of the pandemic and without a Commodore.  
What's next?  It's up to you.  Bring yourself to the table and make it happen.
To volunteer, contact anyone on the Bridge before Monday October 2nd, where we will present the slate of officers to the membership at our General Meeting.

Named to honor of the YRA’s 34th president, nominees must be amateur sailors or race committee personnel, their service must primarily be for a YRALIS member club and they should be members of the YRA."
