Thank You

A big thank you to the hearty crew of volunteers who turned out to landscape and clean up the clubhouse this past Saturday. Our crew mowed, edged, pruned, raked, set out kayak racks, planters, inspected sails, booms, masts and even erected the tent.

The Cohasset Sailing Club is anchored by a tremendous crew of staff members and volunteers. The success of CSC is a reflection of the ever-increasing dedication and enthusiasm of our member volunteers.

I would like to take this opportunity to say a heartfelt “thank you” to all that helped:

Sean Kineally, Anne Rowland, Debbie Johnson, Kathy Iantosca, Vicky Grimes, Katy Woolley, Jacqui Vitello, Trisha Cifrino, Matt Brady, Sandy Crough, Peter Vitello Jr., Joe Kineally, Connor Kineally, Liam O’Connell, Michael Iantosca, Griffin Woolley, Jonas Veitas, Scott Lucit and Matt Lucit

Looking forward to welcoming the class of 2017.  Remember, this is your club and we look forward to seeing everyone enjoying the porch this summer.

Peter V. Vitello
CSC Commodore

 


First come first serve

Due to the ever-increasing popularity of the Cohasset Sailing Club junior training program, maximum class sizes will be instituted for the 2017 season. Classes will be assigned on a first come, first served basis at our spring registration, so please plan accordingly as we will be unable to make exceptions. Only Sailor and Mate swim team members will be placed in classes created to coordinate with the swim team program. In addition to the safety aspect of smaller class sizes, this will also give each student more time on the tiller each week. Consistent with our mission, we will not turn away any resident wishing to learn to sail, and because of this, it may be necessary to adjust the number of classes offered and the planned schedule. You will be notified of any changes as soon as possible after registration.

A copy of each participant’s physical/immunization form must accompany your registration. Your child will not be confirmed in a class without this required form, and he/she will not be allowed to sail.
