NEW YEARS DAY RACE

ast month I wrote about looking forward to the NYE dinner. Well, all I can say is that Kitsy, Marcy and Lori under promised and over delivered for what was sure to be the party of the year. The food, company and entertainment were over the top!            strategic planning. Likewise, the Board is preparing for our annual retreat. I believe this is one of the many things your Board does that separates us from other Clubs (and businesses) who do not put forth

SDYC LIBRARY

The SDYC Sailing Foundation is Proud to Support our Library Our club library has an extensive collection of books, artifacts, and trophies either in storage or on display at the club. This vast collection is a highly regarded and important part of our SDYC history. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taken countless hours of committee work and many generous donations through the Sailing Foundation to get the library to where it is today.

We encourage you to visit the library and see for yourself what it has to offer you. Additional information can be found online at the club website under the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Facilitiesâ&#x20AC;? link, and then under both the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Libraryâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;History Collectionâ&#x20AC;? links. We hope that you take advantage of this wonderful asset.
