Keep focusing on the fleet energy and enthusiasm. The swap meet, as an example. John picked up some wenches, maybe even winches too.
Lew / Bert: suggestion that we try the swap meet again, club wide, and with a lot of advertising.
Raft up: two boats participated. Suggestion for Friday night or impromptu night crawl / raft up option.
C-dock, SOTN: success.
SOTN moved up this year—weekend after Labor Day.
Champ of champs: back up skipper / crew should be identified for last minute conflicts. Back up needs to be boat owner. Therefore, need two boat owners, and any crew.
Quorum: 14 boats represented.

Bert Foster spoke on the following topics:
Rumble: discussion on what to call it. Someone needs to consult with Pete Ice to be sure it’s okay to use the Rumble name for the Sunday champ series race format.
No decision at this point from the C25 fleet on the prefer start times, race limits, scoring method such as low score out, etc. Bert said we have another couple months for the fleet to finalize. The fleet members need to evaluate/vote on a few options and present to WYC
Bert: docks, lifts possibilities in the future, etc.
Nils: rules update:
- Fitted bucket vs. head rule—six liter bucket is the new rule (rid the word ‘head’). Safety for bailing the boat.
- Suitable anchor: must be 8-pounds minimum. 100 feet, no smaller than 5/16. Safety thing—no light anchors. Rule change voted: most in favor, two opposed. Motion carried, passed.
