“Pub Quiz” is a Hit With Members

The December meeting of the Ventura Sailing Club (Victoria Pub, Ventura) saw the first “Pub Quiz” held during the evening. Contestants had to answer 21 general knowledge questions in around 10 minutes. Time taken to complete the questions, as well as accuracy of the answers, were judged, by Vice Commodore Richard Sharpe. The liquid prize was shared between a 3 person team, who racked up an impressive 19 correct answers. The quiz proved very popular and we will hold quizzes in future meetings. Why not come along and try your hand? There are prizes and we also have the complimentary raffle. See you there.

Officers voted in at December meeting.

Will Yount and Richard Sharpe were unanimously voted in to the Commodore and Vice Commode positions for 2018 season. Upon election, they unilaterally decided to reappoint the entire slate of 2017 officers for 2018. That shows you the error made by many who did not attend the December meeting and therefore could not protest. Sharpe said that, in true nautical fashion, Will and I employed the “press gang’ method.

Just as a reminder, the 2018 subscriptions are now due. For a paltry $60.00 you can become a fully-fledged member of one of the most interesting clubs in the Santa Barbara Channel. We are members of the Southern California Yacht Association, the Santa Barbara Channel Yacht Clubs,  We run 4 races per year.
