Dear (CRA) Sailing Friends
Admittedly it is odd to not
be posting photos of your current events
It has and always will be, My desire
to share with you my Photos Capturing
The Happiness, Excitement and Just
plain Beauty of being out on the Water
As that may have been
overlooked, while you were
concentrating on Racing
From the input I have
received from you in person and the
email from viewers around the world
the Photos were "Truly Enjoyed
by many" And shall remain on line to be Enjoyed
If you are wondering why your regular
events will no longer be
photographed It's just part of the Evolution of CRA.
Those who speak and make
decisions for you, are only trying to do
their best to make improvements for you
Like updating that Old CRA Burgee
That Old Burgee took a beating as I
flew it while I was in Auckland for
the 2000 Americas Cup
And as DC Challenged for the 2000
Americas Cup He flew that Old Burgee
In the Old Days, The fact that CRA
with Dennis Conner had Challenged
for the Americas Cup was "Cool"
Very Few Yacht Clubs in the US have
Challenged for the Americas Cup and
some never got over it ( Like NYYC )
I still Love the Americas Cup with all
its Tradition and Grandeur
But that is Old News, This is Today
and You (CRA) must move on !
To better serve you a "New Improved"
Graphic was created symbolizing
the direction CRA is heading in ( I guess ? )
(sorry I don't have an image) It is
much more mature !
We should not feel bad for the changes
as CRA moves forward
No one can take away all the
"Fun Times" We had and you can
still relive the moments in my Photo Gallery
Some of the other changes that are
sure to make CRA stronger as it
Cutting out (
triditional ) "Trophy's" for third
place ( now you get some stuff )
and Charging non-members $20
enter a race are good too !
It can only help.
They are just doing
exactly what they think you want ( to the best of their
If you have any suggestions on the
direction you feel CRA should take
Speak up, Get Involved, Encourage
Others to Give Input
"They" Have to Speak for You!
It's up to You to let them know
what "You Think"
Well we are all just a part of the
World of Sailing and shall
what we do Best
