The meeting started with everyone reporting on their spring boat preparation status, which ranged from barely looking at the boat to almost ready to launch.

The Treasurers report was given by Bill Kneller, followed by the Board of Governor's report given by Mark Rotsky.

Charlie Stoddard then presented the racing schedule for the district, highlighted by the Regionals Regatta in July at Bristol YC, and the North Americans in September at Cedar Point YC in Ct.

Regional elections were held and despite numerous requests for new names in the hat, the same slate of officers was elected;
SNE District Governor - Mark Rotsky
Treasurer - John Howell
Secretary - Kathy Rotsky
Measurer - Charlie Stoddard

The meeting concluded with an open question and answer session which evolved to an excellent brainstorming session covering a number of maintenance issues that boat owners brought up.

A very nice raffle gift provided by Henry
Little, time to wander around the loft drooling on sails, and an abundance of pizza and beverages rounded out a successful meeting and started some juices flowing towards the start of the sailing season.

Respectfully submitted,
Kathy Rotsky
