We had another great year of junior sailing at CSYC, with 92 kids participating. A BIG thank you to co-directors Sally Roberts and Greg Normand and all of the members and parents who volunteered for the various positions that make the program successful. Rich Marsh supported the program with reliable coach boats.

Our club awards a perpetual trophy to the boat which logs the most miles on the water annually. The CSYC Logged Mileage Trophy is in honor of Commodore Charlie Todd and Barb Schmid. They spent 11 years on Sayonara traveling down the eastern shore of the US and venturing on to Europe. They traversed to 17 countries and logged over 25,000 miles. This trophy is a commendable tribute to their adventure and we proudly placed their names on it.
The Logged Mileage Trophy winners for 2018 are Grace Pytell and Emily Gazalle. “Elpis" is
owned by Mark Pytell and his wife Ann. Mark proudly accepted the award on behalf of Grace and Emily, at the Dec Crescent Membership Meeting. Grace and Emily left on Sept 14th on the family boat, a 1983 Columbia 29 and have logged over 6,000 miles on their Great Loop adventure.
We wish Grace and Emily a rewarding and memorable adventure – best of luck girls!
