As most of you know I came back to AYC last summer as General Manager on a “temporary” basis. It has been a great ride but we are spending more time in Dallas so I am stepping down April 1, 2014. The great news is that the Board has promoted Jackie Wheelless to the GM position. I have been very impressed with Jackie over the past 6 months and feel confident she will serve you well. Jackie, Kate, and Tom are a great team and helped cover for me all of time was out.
I am not going far as I have applied to be a AYC member! Wish me luck tomorrow night at the Membership meeting. Sailing and AYC have been a big part of my life the last 10 years. Thanks to the Board and you the members for allowing me to be a part of a great club. I will continue for a time to coach Jackie ensuring a smooth transition.
Please stop by the office and congratulate Jackie on her promotion!
