Leader Change

Change in MmMYC Leadership


After almost 20 years of serving as Vice-Commodore of the Minuteman Model Yacht Club, Jim Linville has decided to step down.  

In addition to his leadership, he has been, and still is, an invaluable resource for building and sailing guidance within the club.  Many of the members he mentored over the years have gone on to excel as skippers and have become regional and national champions in various classes.

He is known for readily handing his transmitter to curious onlookers for their first taste of radio control sailing, and he always seems to have a spare boat in his van if someone wants to join a race.  

The good news is that he will still be available for mentoring, and he will still be coming to the pond to sail, or at least toprovide commentary while others are sailing.

I want thank him for his leadership, his guidance and his friendship; and for his many years of service to the Club.

Cliff Martin will again be Commodore for the coming year, and John Lamport will again be Treasurer, but Guy Washburn has been voted in to replace Jim as Vice-Commodore.  When you see them at the pond, please thank Jim for his service and welcome Guy to his new position.

Cliff Martin, Commodore
