Members ask what my vision is for 2020. Membership is a top priority for me, and I want to find ways to continue to increase value for the membership and to find ways for our members to utilize all our Club events and top-notch facility. I want to continue to provide our members with the very best yacht club in which to feel proud.

I have long wanted to give back to this Club which has given me and my family so much. When Phyllis and I joined Del Rey Yacht Club twenty-three years ago, I never dreamt that one day I would become Commodore of this prestigious Club. I am truly proud, humbled and honored. As I begin my year as your Commodore, I stand before you ready to serve the Club and its members. I am truly looking forward to working with the 2020 Board of Directors, and do the very best job I can in continuing to promote DRYC as one of the top yacht clubs around.

People join clubs for so many different reasons, but most important is to have fun and enjoy the camaraderie. I have seen this Club through good times, bad, tragedy or triumph and, like a family, you have supported me and surrounded me like a family. I have seen members pull together and that is why we call DRYC our second home.

This year, my theme is Beyond The Horizon. Whether you are a new member or a guest, I welcome you to our family. I would like you to help me celebrate Del Rey Yacht Club.  We are in good hands with this bridge, board and officers at the helm.  Here is to a great year ahead.  Let’s have some fun!
