Thanks to Tom Koch for being the point person on the annual PCYC cruise and dinner. You can read more about this fun and well-attended event held July 13 – 15, elsewhere in this issue of the Signal Hoist. Thanks again to Steve Young for being the point person on the evening cruises. Needless to say that so far, we’ve been having a fun summer on the water. We are looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible in Two Harbors, Catalina from August 7 — 14, or any portion of that time that you can come. For more information contact Steve or Eleanor York. Also, save the date for our annual meeting/picnic/barbecue, to be held on Saturday, September 8, at the Swallings — more details to follow.
The Membership Chair reports that total membership is 127 as of July 21, 2018. Of interest is that we have picked up 30 new members since the beginning of the year, and all of them have come from our educational offerings: of 16 students taking the first ABC class (open to nonmembers) 14 of them elected to join the squadron; of 27 students taking the Marine Electrical Systems class (membership required to take the class) 12 were new members; and, of 10 students currently taking the Piloting class (membership required to take the class), 4 are new members.

All past instructors, we need many of you to recertify. Tom Koch is going to set up a 4 hour Instructor Recertification class later this summer. We’ll keep you posted as we learn more details.
