• We ended the year with a total of 19 members.
• The Parks & Recreation Dept. installed a water line into our facility. This will allow us to keep the boats and dollies cleaner
• Our July Sailing classes had five students complete the course.
• In working with JC Parks and Re on youth sailing sessions more than twenty younger sailors were introduced to sailing.
• CCSA now has 7 Club Boats; a Flying Scott, 3 JY-15s, a Laser, a Mega-byte and a Sunfish.
• There is a new fleet of six Mega-bytes.
