SAYRA Commodore Update 4-30-2020

SAYRA friends:

As I emailed last week... here is the promised information for our SAYRA YC Leadership Roundtable scheduled for May 5th at 5pm. Call in details are below. This conference call is targeted at yacht club flag officers and other leadership to discuss overall response to the challenges of the pandemic.   

Few key points:

1. Please let me know in advance who's going to be speaking for each Club by emailing  Of course other club members are more than welcome to join in. To streamline the process we would like to have 1 speaker from each club. 

2. Email and specific Agenda Topics your club wants to hear on we will try to narrow down the topics before the call. 

3. Sailing Program call - We had almost 30 people join the SAYRA program focused call on Tuesday night and it was a great discussion and insight. Thank you to all that participated.  Reference materials from that call are being placed on our SAYRA reference page: LINK If you have not read the Sail Newport Letter - please do. 

4. If you have not had a chance to review the US Sailing Organizational Resources please do.  LINK   We do have confirmation that another US Sailing YC Leadership Forum will occur in the next 10 days, so look for your US Sailing Newsletter - Quarterdeck for full details.  You can select that newsletter feature on your US Sailing membership profile. 

Look forward to chatting on Tuesday.  Robert
