as possible. Unlike other restaurants, we cannot go to the public to increase the usage of the restaurant and lounge - we have to ask you. Thanks to those of you who have been making the effort to come to the club house during the inclement weather we have endured up to this point of the season. To those who haven’t come out, the food is just as good on a rainy day as on a sunny one. A very important event is coming up at the end of July which will help the club make the move to this new building, as well as two other key items. We will review some changes that are required to the moorage entrance and to the docks to facilitate access before the remainder of the park construction begins. There is also the final moorage expansion to consider, and we will hear from our long range planning committee who will bring everyone up to speed on its progress with the new building itself. Most important to many are the changes proposed to the bylaws which Vice Commodore Elton and his committee has been working on diligently since last year. These changes will also help us move forward into our new building with some financial breathing room. To better explain this there are several meetings available throughout July at the club house In an effort to better help everyone attending be well informed ahead of time. Please make the time to attend and discuss the efforts of these volunteers, who will be hosting these sessions. All of this effort is being made in order to minimize the financial impact on our membership that the construction of our new facilities could bring. Please attend! They care, but that only works if you care as well.

CHUCK ROBERTSON

COMMODORE FINANCE COMMITTEE/PERSONNEL

I would like to thank everyone who contributed to the success of the Commodore’s reception party. Everyone that attended seemed to have thoroughly enjoyed the event. To the kitchen and serving staff thank you once again. To my wife Bernice and my daughters Sabrina and Maria along with my son-in-law Chad, Debbie McMillian, and past commodore’s wife and friend Diane Laing, a big thanks for sprucing up the joint. The sail past was well attended by the sailing fleet which kicked the power boaters’ proverbial butts. I would hope that we have a better showing next year from both fleets. To all that did attend, and to those of you that could not but responded with the expected protocol, thank you. Your attendance acknowledges the board, flag officers and past commodores for all the time they volunteer in an effort to better our club in the past and today, year after year. As volunteers we can only do so much. After that it falls on the member- ship to participate in the club functions and facilities. This is how we have survived up to this point in our history as we are a club built on volunteers and their contributions. We are about to embark on the largest investment in our clubs’ history with the new clubhouse. Both our current clubhouse, as well as our new building,needs your support to be viable! We need you and other members to utilize its services in order to be as financially successful

Our membership drive continues with a contest for members who sponsor new members. For each new member you are the primary sponsor for, you will get two entries into the draw and the secondary sponsor receives one entry into the draw for free moorage, house account credit or free tickets to club events. Our drive for more members has been greatly aided with the production of a very classy, high quality membership specific publication which debuted at the boat show. Come in to the front office and pick up a number of them if you want to use it as a valuable tool to positively promote your club.

As mentioned in my last report, the bylaws review committee made up of Past Commodore Pat Greyell, Director Brett Wike, Holly Radcliffe, Sid Segal and myself as chair, have now completed the main redraft of the bylaws. An extra ordinary special general meeting will be held on July 31 for the membership to approve the redrafted bylaws. For more information on the redrafted bylaws, please look for a mail package from the KYC or go on our member’s website, https://www.kelownayachtclub.com/Login.aspx?returnurl=/Member- Central.aspx log in and click to the member’s handbook, club bylaws pages for more information. There will also be a number of information sessions to further explain the recommended changes to the bylaws. A schedule will be emailed out to the membership or look for a schedule on the website or in the clubhouse. These new bylaws are critical for the KYC to meet the future financial obligations for our club and the long term overall success of the Kelowna Yacht Club legacy. The Okanagan summer is now upon us and it is a great time to enjoy the lake and the club camaraderie.

BYLAWS COMMITTEE REPORT

ELTON ASH

VICE COMMODORE

An extra ordinary special general meeting has been called for July 31 at the Mary Irwin Theatre to approve the redrafted bylaws for the Kelowna Yacht Club. It is critical to the long term financial success

of the club to approve the new bylaws. The committee made up of myself, Past Commodore Pat Greyell, Director Brett Wike, Holly Radcliffe and Sid Segal worked very hard to ensure the redrafted bylaws addressed the future of the Kelowna Yacht Club. It is critical as we move into our new facility that we have the strengthened foundation to address our future challenges and issues. As you initially look over the redrafted bylaws, you will find them a lot easier to navigate and reference specific clauses or paragraphs as the entire document has been reformatted into a format that mirrors the BC Society Act. We have also worked to ensure that multiple references to the same situation in different sections are no longer contradictory or confusing. Most of the revisions reflect those housekeeping changes, but there are five recommendations which many will find more significant. The first of these is the addition of two new membership categories: social and corporate. Your board of directors identified the need for both of these through the recent strategic planning process and many members have also raised these as extremely important to the future financial performance of our new clubhouse. Although considered in the past, members were concerned they could not enjoy the same access and service levels had we added these categories before we had the room for additional members. Having a facility much larger than our current one means we should now take this step. The big advantage to our whole membership is that, with two new membership categories, our expanded dining and membership facilities will be better utilized throughout the entire year. From a business perspective, a larger, more diversified membership base will ensure our new

facility can be financed with no additional economic strain on our current

membership, keeping club membership affordable and within range of the average Kelowna family. Adding a social membership category meets our goal to provide an affordable family environment. The corporate member- ship recognizes that many of our Kelowna businesses are directly connected with the Okanagan lifestyle. It simply makes good financial sense to take advantage of their desire, since our prime location and superior services will be very attractive for businesses to entertain customers and employees. It is also important to note that neither the social or corporate membership categories will have a vote at general meetings. The last three important recommendations relate to our governance process; introducing the ability for members to vote by proxy, changing the quorum size and the percentage of votes needed for majority approval to change the bylaws. There was a time when an annual general meeting was as much a social event as an overall review of the club and members had the time to make attendance a priority. Today we all have many external pressures pulling us in many directions. As much as we want to attend every AGM it is often very difficult, yet we still want to have that sense of connection and involvement. This is where voting by proxy has its true value. However, learning from other clubs’ experiences, the bylaw committee and the board of directors were concerned that proxy voting could be misused through block voting by a special interest group; hence the recommendation that proxies be restricted to two per attending-member. We believe this will meet the needs of our membership while still safeguarding the integrity of our governance process. You will also note two other changes to voting requirements; quorum size and the percentage needed for majority approval. With our increasing numbers, it makes more sense to tie the general meeting quorum to a percentage of voting membership rather than a simple number. The committee wrestled with the best percentage to recommend; 5% (63 members today) seemed too low and 10% (125 members) seemed high, so the committee has recommended 7.5%, (93 given current membership numbers) of the voting membership at the time of the meeting as a realistic number for a meaningful quorum, considering the increased capacities of our new clubhouse. There will be a number of information sessions to further explain the changes to the bylaws. Please take the time to attend these sessions to be fully informed on why these changes are deemed to be necessary for a healthy future by the committee and your board of directors.

MOORAGE REPORT

MIKE TERRIS

REAR COMMODORE

The boating season is well underway after a cold and wet spring. On July 31 we will be holding a very important special general meeting to ask for your support on our next moorage expansion and an up-date to the KYC bylaws. Please take the time in July to gather all the information available on these two topics prior to the meeting. The board of directors is encouraging you to vote in favour of these changes and will be making a strong effort to communicate why we believe the changes are critical to the long term future of KYC. This summer, the moorage committee has asked that a major audit of the basin be conducted by moorage staff. This will mean that every slip and vessel will be individually checked to ensure we are compliant with our moorage regulations. Our main focus will be on safety issues such as boat length to size of slip and electrical hook-ups, but all aspects of the regulations will be checked into. Members will be asked to address any issues that are identified by our staff and given a reasonable time line to “fix” the problem. We ask for your full cooperation with this project. We will prepare a report on its outcome for the next edition of the Hornblower and

also place it on the website. A small indicator of why the project is necessary

is the fact that by June 15 of this year, we had over 200 slips/vessels in the

basin that did not have proper documentation of ownership and insurance on file with the office. Many of the slips were vacant, but a significant number

were not. As you know, boat insurance is a major issue for the Club and all boats in the basin must show proof of insurance while moored in the basin. Please take some time to revisit the moorage regulations as the boating season gets into full swing. They are posted on our website and were up- dated this March. Have a safe year on the water and in the basin.

SAILING FLEET REPORT

HENRY HARLOS

FLEET CAPTAIN

At the time of this writing, summer has arrived only on the calendar. Unseasonably cool temperatures and blustery conditions have been the norm rather than the exception. Only the racing crews have been out on a regular basis. Let’s hope that with the holiday months ahead, warmer water and air

temperatures will tempt the remainder of the fleet to get out on the lake. This year’s addition of the Canaccord Cup was another outstanding event. Shelley Rison pulled everything together just in time to have the shore events compliment the racing on the water. Although there was a shortage of visitors from other clubs, the winner in fleet #1 was Craig Berg from Nelson. Fleet #2 was won by Danny Foster, fleet #3 was won by Ray Adams and the 525 division was won by John Sharples. As this regatta was also for the national championship, he got to take home the big trophy. John has to share the overall trophy, the Canaccord Cup, with Gillian Hayward who tied with him for that honor. Great racing with good food and music have made this event one of the main events on the racing calendar and this year was no exception. The other big racing event, for the Commodore’s Cup, is in the final planning stages. To be held August 10-12, it is the fundraising event for the Disabled Sailing Association. Unfortunately, we have a conflict of dates with another regatta on the lake, which will affect the numbers at each location, but we hope that maybe more of our local sailors will come out to make up the difference. Check your email for additional details. In addition to the scheduled racing evenings for the regular series and the women’s series, we will also see more junior sailors on the water. When you see them out there, give them a wide berth to allow them to gain the confidence needed to make the correct maneuvers. This same goes for the disabled sailors. They usually have a powerboat trailing behind to assist them should the necessity arise. Acknowledge their efforts but stay clear. For those not into the racing scene, buddy up with others and head out to one of the buoys KCY has located at safe anchorages on the lake. Having

a destination gives a purpose to your sailing activities. Safe boating to all!

POWER FLEET REPORT

NANCY THOMPSON

STAFF CAPTAIN

First off, a big thank you to everyone who participated in Boat for Hope on June 16 to provide Okanagan children with special needs and their families a fun time on the water encountering pirates and collecting booty. The lengths that our club members went to with pirate costumes and boat décor was amazing and impressive, as was their generosity with their time and boats. It was wonderful to see KYC veterans with new members and not- yet members meeting each other and bonding at the post-piracy barbecue. It was truly a team effort and a very worthwhile contribution to our community. Can’t wait for next year; see you there!

Some participants actually fish, while others prefer to come out just to experience boating on the lake. We’ll be looking for volunteer skippers and boats for this event. Some faithful folks volunteer year after year, and it’s much appreciated, but this year it’s a goal to broaden the base of participating KYC members - just do it!! A safety note for boaters: the annual Across the Lake Swim from the ferry docks to City Park takes place the morning of July 14. Volunteer boaters and the RCMP boat provide an escort for the swimmers. Please keep an eye out for the swim if you’re boating that morning, respect the directions of the support boats and use common sense. If you’re interested in volunteering yourself and your boat to carry lifeguards and escort the swimmers, please email kyc.staff.captain@gmail.com It’s been a great pleasure meeting so many of you at May and June’s events. See you at the club!

HOUSE & BAR REPORT

DOUG HARPOLD

DIRECTOR

The commodore’s reception and sailpast traditional events were executed smoothly from a food and beverage perspective. The comments we received were very favourable and, in many instances, glowing. Canaccord Cup and Boat for Hope, both big events, were coordinated and executed well between volunteers and staff. Fathers’ day brunch sat three seatings of 50, and also met with favourable reviews. The KYC golf tourna-ment organized by the house and events committee had approximately 50 participants and managed to dodge the rain. A good time was had by all. The commodore and I have discussed concerns that neither the club survey nor the webinars held at the club have resulted in sufficient follow through to justify the cost and engagement of club resources including staff. The commodore requested a report on the club survey and webinars to include some actionable steps. Here are our plans to action for consolidated requests by members. THE SURVEY SAYS: Our members enjoy our staff and how they present themselves. However, they want more personal engagement between staff and members.

• Our Jonas system has the member number and photos of some members. If you have not had your picture taken please do so. Staff should ask for

• We are extending the deckhand lunch offering four choices from a quick flat sheet for $6.95. The deckhands lunch will continue during week as the club lunch feature. This themed lunch has proven so successful that many members simply order from the deckhands lunch menu. This suggests we have given members what they want and our regular menu(s) may be too extensive. Fewer selections could result in faster service with significant efficiencies related to food and preparation, so we will closely monitor the situation and make adjustments where necessary. THE SURVEY SAYS: Wait times are too long, particularly on the patio.

• During heavy traffic times we will implement a cash bar with limited selection on the patio. This will relieve pressure on the servers and give members quick access to refreshment. We are always mindful this is the members’ club. If we give you what you want now you will come back time and again. Unfortunately, many members abandon us in the winter months, which results in financial losses. I hope that as a KYC member, you feel important and that we are responding to your requests so you will continue to frequent your club in slow times more often. Please remember to always fill out your comment cards and tell us what your thoughtsare. Iwillsubmitotherissuesandreportonourprogressinfuturereports as we action other suggestions and results from the survey and webinars. Revenues were soft in May resulting in a net loss of ($7,893) against a forecast of a slight profit and ($6,649) more losses than last year for the same month. Total year to date losses are ($73,493) approximately $13,000 ahead of budget and $30,000 improvement year to date compared to same period a year ago. At a special meeting in July members will be asked to vote to approve corporate and social memberships as part of the bylaw changes. Revenues from these additional memberships will be an important part of keeping our club affordable for all members. Please keep an open mind about this motion and come to one of the July information sessions to learn more and have your questions answered. Management continues to be vigilant and committed to efficiencies but meeting our budget depends on all members frequenting their club. Come often, participate and enjoy your experience. KYC really is “The Best Place to BE!”

Moorage gross revenue is $137,734 more than last YTD due to increased slips and rate increases. This department is running an excess of revenue ahead of budget by $43,098 YTD. The boat show statement has been produced. Sales came in $1,570 less than last year. Advertising and equipment rental expenses were more than budgeted; however the buoy maintenance came within budget.

GENERAL MANAGER REPORT

JIM KAY, MANAGER

On June 18, the first of two staff orientation days was presented to approximately half of the new and returning staff. A key component of that presentation was the BOD directors’ video welcome. It was very well received by all of the staff and edited to be a very entertaining, yet sincere presentation and welcome to the staff. Some of the other agenda items included: a governance overview, our culture, our purpose, safety, respect, support, WOW Factor, a very stimulating customer service focused workshop, a marina tour, a new clubhouse presentation, and an overview of our employee manual. All in all, it was a very productive six-hour training workshop. The final training day will take place on July 4.

I would like to extend a BIG THANK YOU to Terri Knox, one of our

members, who has so graciously helped us out with many staff training projects over the past two years, including the past three staff orientation days. For those of you who don’t know, Terri is an international motivational speaker, who specializes in customer service and leadership. Her no- nonsense approach, combined with her wit and humor have added tremendous value to the competency of our staff and management team training. The public hearing for our new clubhouse occurred on June 26, at 6:00pm at City Hall, council chambers. The purpose of the public meeting was to allow public input into the development permit (DP) that we have filed with the city. In the DP, we have asked for a number of variances from existing zoning bylaws. I am happy to report that the council passed the permit variances unanimously, and council members were all very complimentary of the design and the amount of effort the club is making to tie our building into the park and the streetscape. There have been a number of long range planning committee meetings with the architects and our quantitative surveyor. The majority of the meetings have been to deal with the budget process. We have just given the green light to the engineering consultants to begin work on the construction drawings. These will be integral to a final costing for our budget, as we begin to move towards tendering out our project. There have been two initial interior design and decorating sub-committee meetings for the new clubhouse. The committee is still being formed under the leadership of Cairy Holtby. Discussions at this point have been limited to committee structure, meeting objectives and initial goal setting. Further information as it becomes available will be passed on. As you may have noticed, we have just recently hired an assistant food and beverage manager to help out with the supervision, coaching and administration of this department. This is a junior position at this point and very much a working position, especially in the winter months when our revenues and cash flow are decreased. We were very excited with the caliber

of individuals that applied, and I believe we have made an excellent selection. His name is Matthew Schroenn and he does have a very good background in the private club industry, most recently with the Vancouver Rowing Club. Please take the opportunity to introduce yourself to him as soon as you can. Commodore Robertson has asked the food and beverage team to reconnect with the members survey that was conducted and tabulated last October. Although we believe that we have already acted on many of the recommendations and outcomes of the survey, we will be completing this project as our next item of business in the very near future.

I would like to commend all those involved with the Boat for Hope day

held this past Saturday. The event was another huge success despite some inclement weather. This day shines the spotlight on the KYC as important community minded citizens that contribute greatly to the compassion shown to those who face special challenges in our society. A special acknowledgement to all of the people who volunteered and took leadership roles in their first Boat for Hope!

Youth and Education Report

Submitted by Valerie Cloutier

Quite a few things to say since it’s the busy season for the Youth & Ed department! Busy is good as it means lots of students and activities! June was great for events, we participated in the YMCA Healthy Kids Day, the Fat Cat Parade and the Sailpast. It’s always awesome to have the kids participate in events like that to show how much fun we’re having! We started our sailing lessons quite early this year, May 5 was the first day we went out for a private lesson, three weeks earlier than last year! We offer once again a wide variety of programs, for anyone and everyone of all ages and abilities. New this year we offer keelboat lessons from May to October, to complement the already popular program offered at the club in April. Tracy Delorme is doing a fabulous job teaching the keelboat lessons, even offering CYA certification! The Youth Race Team is also very active, training once a week since the end of April, and participating in regattas across BC. The WAVES Regatta at the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club on June 23-24 will be a challenging one but the racers will get some experience we are missing here on the lake, with tides, current and waves. As for events, we have our annual Spaghetti Dinner on June 29, hopefully it will be a success. We are also hosting a home dinghy regatta for anyone interested to come race dinghies and have some fun, on August 25. We’ll have corn on the cobs at the Muster Station, come join us! We are also doing great finding sponsors (well, I should say John Sharples knows how to convince people). I’d like to thank Ross Young from CIBC Wood Gundy and CairyHoltby from RHG Wealth Management for their support. We’re a great organization offering healthy programs to the youth, teaching them not only a fun sport but also life-long skills. Support from

sponsors is important to make it work! We’ll have our sponsors’ logos on our sailboat hulls, also on a sign at the Muster Station and on the sleeves of the Youth Race Team clothing. Once our new Race Team trailer is completed, we’ll also have our sponsor’s logo on it, which will be travelling all across the province. If you’re interested in joining in to support a great program that you should be proud of, please let me know! Wishing you all a great summer, see you on the docks and on the water!

Arghhh… now that was a blast,matey!

Submitted by Ken Smith

The Kelowna Yacht Club sponsored the first Okanagan Boat for Hope with Variety, the children’s charity, in 2006 and this was now our sixth year treating children with disabilities, their sisters and brothers, and parents/caregivers to an unforgettable day on the water raiding pirate boats. Working closely with the Okanagan Boys and Girls Club, the kids and their families enjoy one of the few annual events designed specifically for the whole family. This day is also a highlight for many of our members, as they’re amply rewarded by the smiles and laughter erupting from kids who face severe challenges in their everyday lives. “It’s also a the best excuse all year to get dressed up in pirate costumes and decorate our boats,” laughs Dianne Klassen, this year’s committee chair. “Let’s not forget the sailors! What they do to transform their sailboats into pirate ships is almost unbelievable!” Eighteen members donated their power boats to take the kids out to raid five “pirate” sailboats anchored at various locations around the Lake. Firing water guns and using water buckets, the kids attacked each pirate ship to force the pirates to hand over the “booty” - bags filled with an exciting collection of toys, candy, games and other items. Once back on land, the kids enjoyed a barbeque, live entertainment, games and a whole variety of activities in the parking lot and Kelowna Yacht Club patio, organized by the Okanagan Boys and Girls Club. A highlight for many is the grand finale water battle, where the sailors storm each other off City Park, circling and darting in to blast away with water buckets, water guns, pumps and hoses. They all returned, soaked and grinning ear to ear, to enjoy the post-event barbeque and music by The Highwaymen late into the evening.

While our volunteers make the whole day possible with their boats, other volunteers from the club, Nestor’s Market, and the Okanagan Boys and Girls Club all contribute by hosting the on-land activities. Members of the Kelowna Fire Department do a yeoman’s of job loading kids (some in very heavy powered wheelchairs) into the boats, calming excited children and then helping everyone back to dry land. This year, they also demonstrated their search and rescue firefighting boat while ferrying media out to see the action on the water. KYC donates moorage space for this valuable service in order to minimize response time to emergencies. If you think you might like to get involved in this fabulous event next year, just drop by the office and sign up in the volunteers book!
