Commodore's Scuttlebutt October 26, 2018



O​ctober / 26 / 2018



Many thanks to a group of volunteers who set 12 new mooring/ dock anchors last weekend with the help of diver, George Rusho.  This project was organized by HIYC Secretary /Mooring Fleet Admiral Don Kaufman with help from Harbormaster CJ Pierce, and members Greg Theriot, Todd Malone, Ted Chapin, and Jim Doran.


Thanks to Ray Marley who noticed low water pressure at HIYC and notified Markley Gordon, House Committee Chairman.. We had a major plumbing leak coming from the water main into our clubhouse,which was scheduled to be replaced this fall. Thanks AGAIN Markley for meeting with the contractors and assisting with one of our chronic maintance problems and getting it done now! 



We issued a special invitation to our

former Commodores to show appreciation to Fred Beesley for 50 years of service. Hope to see several of you at our
