Commodore's Message for the 67th Season

Welcome to the 2019 sailing season! We are going to have another amazing year at the Barrie Yacht Club.

I want to thank all the board members who served in 2018 and our rear Commodore Chris for a great year. Thank you, Chris. This year he will be busy recruiting new members and filling vacant slips along with other duties.

Vice Commodore Kevin Lee has accepted the added job of coordinating sailing focused training and activities to help both experienced and new sailors develop their skills and have some fun.
