Cruising Committee Chair
The Cruising Committee Chair is responsible for organizing non-competitive fleet events. In plain English, this person gets interested boaters together to sail off to other destinations on Seneca Lake (or beyond). This could be an afternoon raft-up on the lake to enjoy the day or it can be a week(s) long trip through the New York Canals to destinations beyond the Finger Lakes.
This position is currently vacant. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact the Commodore right away!
