COMMODORE’S REPORT
This is a great time of year. Now I know that there are
some of you who are saying "is he nuts??” Its cold,
miserable, dark..and worst of all, my boat is covered in
ice and snow!". I suppose it’s whether you are a "glass is
half full" or a "glass is half empty" kind of person. I like
to look at it that there is way more winter behind us,
than in front of us. Within 6 weeks or so, tarps will start
to come off boats, the yard will sing with the soothing
sounds of grinders, sanders and other power tools, and
talk will turn to Regatta Weekend. Meanwhile, at the club
there is a full slate of activities to make the next 6 weeks
go a little faster--nav courses, dances, socials, special
dinners--it's all designed to serve you, the member. Make
a point of taking advantage of the club in the weeks
ahead, because I guarantee you, all too soon the "list of
things to do before launch" will come knocking!!
And then, I'll see you on the water!!

ARMDALE YACHT CLUB’S NEWSLETTER
From the Editor: Ahoy mates: The Halifax Boat Show
(in my opinion) was one of the best we have had in a long
time. The displays were very well done, the staff at each
location were professional, well turned out and offered
boaters an opportunity to escape the daily routine for a few
days. I was one of the first to get in the door on Thursday and
I was not disappointed. I tried to visit all the booths, but I
must confess I leaned to the sailing side a little more than the
power side. The power side that I did visit was most
impressive and even I picked up a few brochures detailing
some of the most beautiful boats that I have seen in a long
time. Boating is one of, if not the best family sport around. It
promotes responsibility, good will and a sincere interest in
keeping our coastlines and inland waterway clean for years to
come. Once again, I bumped into several AYC Members and
they all agreed that the toys
that were at the show were
very very nice. I had my eyes
on a beauty. I quickly went and
bought a lottery ticket as soon
as I got to the local mall.
See you at the club.

A CALL FOR THE DETAILS, YOU’LL BE GLAD.
We started the New Year with a flurry of activity. As
you know, this year we only had a one week shut down
so with a team of dedicated volunteers we set to work. In
this short space of time the ladies washrooms, which
were appalling, were totally renovated. The lower lobby
got a face lift plus new flooring, the dining room and
upper ward room also got spiffed up. The caterers have
had some issues addressed re:equipment, also repairs to
the bar area are on-going these of which are long
overdue.
In the near future the rear deck will be re-built,
weather permitting.
In closing, I would like to thank the following people:
Munden & Dianne, Dave & Janice, Eric & Ellen, Lloyd
& Suzie, Dennis & Rosalind, Vic & Karen, Vince &
Dianne, Grant & Penny, Andy & Paul (who are not a
couple), Jack, and last but not least, Dee.
The A.Y.C Reno Team
Thanks everyone for a great effort.

CERTAIN ASSUMPTIONS HAVE BEEN MADE.
Sailors, we all dream about sailing alone
around the world, but only a few of us
actually do it. I shook the hand of Derek
Hatfield at the Halifax boat Show and I must
admit, it was great to meet someone who
has completed such a journey. Once is
incredible but, Derek is planning another trip,
aboard the new Spirit of Canada, an open
60 racing sailboat. Check out his site at

Yard Staff to the membership.
all get together for the first Skippers Meeting
of the year. We would like to review the sailing instructions and calendar at that time
and Roy is working on having a special
presentation. It should be interesting and
fun. Come for Sunday brunch then the
meeting, a perfect afternoon.
Yard Foreman, Wade Henneberry and our
Club Manager, Kristine Jagoe have met with
the Insurance Broker and Adjuster for the
damage caused to the marinas during
Hurricane Juan with very positive results and
we expect repairs to be completed for the
start of the yachting season.
We are still looking for someone to
run the race house this season. If you are
interested or know someone who may be
interested, send them our way. We would
love a volunteer and would equally love to
pay someone to do the job. Mostly, we
would love to have the job filled and by a
capable party.
The Yard Committee will be meeting in early
January to plan the work required in the yard
for the coming year. If anyone has suggestions or questions, do not hesitate in speaking
with me.
I would like to thank the past Yard Chairman,
Paul Samson for the work and effort he has
We also need sponsors. We want to award

more fun and rewarding. If you are interested in donating anything and I mean anyNorman Raine
thing, we will gladly give it away. This
Yard Chairman
includes donating your time to approach
likely donors. Give us a call.
Winter is almost gone and dreams of sailing
our yachts is soon a reality. Try not to miss
the meeting and try to send us some feedback on our ideas. You will soon be stuck
with the decisions if you don't.

Looking Astern
It was 1963, a group of excited
lads wearing Royal Canadian
Sea Cadet uniforms stepped off
the bus and were instantly
made welcome by caring and
attentive hosts of the Annual
Sea Cadet regatta. I was having a great time, meeting new
friends, on the first day and
trying to outsail them on the
second day. It was the first
time that I had ever sailed in
the Northwest Arm and I could
not believe that I was so lucky
to be one of the 100 or so
teenagers, selected to represent their Corps. I was from the
Royal Canadian Sea Cadet Corp
Lion which was on shores of the
bay at Hamilton, Ontario. I was
sailing the famous 470 then
and that was a lot of fun. The
regatta was wonderful, the people were wonderful and I
thought someday I will sail this
area again and here I am..I
want to thank all those that
took the time to give us
“Cadets” the time of our lives.
Thanks. My memory, but I felt
that it was worth sharing.

DAWN
Dawn-and a cloudless sky
With a brisk breeze blowing;
And the seabirds, flight
In the morning light,
As the waves go racing by
With their white crests showing.
www.cadets.ca
Dawn of a new-born day,
With the chill of night dying
As the shadows flee
To windward and lee,
And the sharp prow cleaves the spray,
At the forefoot flying
Dawn o,er the ocean dim
With the big Sails shaking;
And the long white wake
Where the foam flecks break,
And Nature singing a hymn
To the glad day waking
Dawn of a radiant day
Bright with the hope of homing,
As each sailor boy
With a heart of joy,
Singing his glad roundelay,
Returns from his roaming
