Blink of an Eye

george artkaHere we are in mid September with the first haul out on the horizon. It’s a shame that summer passes by so fast. Weren't we just getting our boats ready for launch? Looking back, though, we had great weather compared to last year. While the cold is coming, we're assured of plenty of fellowship as the days get shorter.

This edition of The Compass has a complete report on the general membership meeting Sept. 17. We've got a good group of new officers coming in, to whom we owe congratulations. Please be doubly sure to thank your outgoing officers for their dedicated service. They are: Directors Jim Peterson, Mel Fabiszak, Pete Engel and Corresponding Secretary Luke Radomski. 

Parking Lot Repaving On Hold

We have received an update from the Milwaukee County Parks Department about the timeline for repaving the parking lot at South Shore Park. No construction will take place this fall. It now appears that the project has been pushed back with a possible start date next spring. As the picture becomes clearer, we'll let you know.

SSYC has also commenced lease renewal negotiations with the county, which need to be concluded by the end of 2017. One initial meeting has been held. We have a capable negotiating team in place.

SSYC North?

Around three months ago we were approached by a representative from the Port of Milwaukee. They were wondering if we would be interested in leasing the property south of the Coast Guard Station off of Russell Street. Currently Discovery World holds the lease to the property and shares it with the Sea Scouts.

After receiving this information I appointed a sub-committee headed by Rear Commodore Jerry Kedziora to look into whether or not leasing this property would be beneficial. At this time the committee is gathering information about the property and current lease agreements. I intend to hold a special informational meeting for the membership before making any decisions.

Thank You

This Compass article will be my last as your commodore. Thanks for allowing me the privilege of representing you for the past two years. It has been an enormous pleasure working with all of the members, staff, directors and flag officers. My best wishes to Ken Dziubek, our incoming commodore.

Sailing and Racing

You can learn more about the various racing fleets by clicking here.  And the racing schedule (for all fleets) is available here.
