Greetings FWC Members!
September has arrived, but that certainly doesn’t mean it’s time to start thinking about packing the boat up for Winter! There is still racing to be done as we head toward the end of the year.
What’s going on?
The focus at the moment is planning for the Championship regatta, coming up in November! The FWC leadership team wants to ensure that everyone who attends has a great experience, and the event will be of the quality that one would expect of a championship level regatta.
After the regatta, there will be a few more things to take care of this year. Mainly, the annual meeting and the election.
As we have done in years past, the annual meeting will be held via zoom at a pre-communicated date and time. We hope that anyone interested joins to hear about where we have been, where we are going, and a discussion of items that may appear on the ballot. No voting will take place at the annual meeting – it will be done electronically as we have done in years past to ensure everyone who wants to cast a vote is able to.
We will hold a Q&A session at the championship regatta for sailors to attend – members of the leadership team will be present to answer questions about what might appear on the ballot, or answer and discuss any other items pertaining to the FWC.
This year is also an election year, and all board seats are up for re-election. Our election is an open election, and anyone may run for any position. Descriptions of the positions are listed in our Rules and Bylaws. If you are interested in running for a board spot, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with a little information about yourself and what position you are running for.

I would like to have any nominations submitted by October 15th.
