Fairfield Harbour is a wonderful community, and I am proud of Fairfield Harbour Yacht Club’s place within this community. It is an honor to serve this fellowship of boaters and it is a challenge to maintain the high standards established by our past leadership. We have a dedicated and capable Bridge, Board and committee chairs. As Commodore I claim the right to applaud them first and loudest.
FHYC offers great opportunities. It’s my job to make sure that Fairfield Harbour Yacht Club continues to offer every member a chance to cruise, to learn, to race, to enjoy coastal waters in our boats, and to enjoy the company of fellow members. We continue our grand traditions while seeking to improve what we can.
The Oar Race is a grand tradition, with profound historic roots. Our club cruises are also a grand tradition, each one potentially “the cruise of a lifetime.” FHYC members have carried out nationally-recognized rescues, and our burgee has flown far and wide. As in past years, we will be welcoming new members into our traditions. I am confident they will become just as proud and will add their own luster.
It is my task to keep the torch lit. I invite every FHYC member to join in, because everyone gains more when all of us contribute. We must also pass the torch and make sure that our club continues to be one of the brightest stars in our great community.
