The year started off great with our Junior Board of Directors versus Commodores Poker Challenge. We had an amazing turnout of over 50 participants; a combination of commodores, directors, all of the Junior Board of Directors, and BCYC family and friends. It was a super fun night – everyone had a great time. Rear Commodore Kari Konapelsky won in the final round in a match with Cruz Rivera, junior director. And a big thank you goes to Tammy Boivin, Michael Crimmins, Derek Johansson, Lisa Mayol, Jen and Kell Morris, Pete Potter, and Tim and Mindy Woods.

Showboat hits the stage March 25-28, starring Commodore Ginny Lombardi, along with the BCYC members in the cast and crew. This year’s show theme is a High School Musical Reunion. Words cannot express how grateful the cast is when our members come and see our show!

The Newport to Ensenada (N2E) pre-race party will be at BCYC again, April 23. This event will be attended by many of the race entrants, their crew and VIPs associated with the race. ALL members are encouraged to attend – please watch for additional information in the near future. With over 300 party attendees, we have created a well- coordinated plan to make certain this is a great party. The N2E is an annual 125-nautical mile yacht race from Newport Beach to Ensenada, Mexico, celebrating its 73rd race this year.

I look forward to a great spring!

Vice Commodore, Rhonda Tolar
