Ahoy Yachties. Here is the photo and bio of our newest potential member to the Yacht Club. If, after this post is up on our website for two weeks, and there are no objections the general membership, then Steve will become an official member. He’s a great guy and is looking forward to joining us on the water.

From Steve Greenstein:

I started off boating with my father at the age of 14 in 1964.  We tried sailing in Mission Bay, San Diego in a 14’ rental and failed, we could not keep the boat off the beach.  We ended up joining his work yacht club, General Dynamics Convair.  Convair had a rigorous 3-month sailing course, classroom and on the water (imagine aerospace engineers teaching a sailing class).  Passing the class, we then could rent their boats, 21’ and 25’. 

From there I proceeded to up my boating skills with the Red Cross and Coast Guard Auxiliary.  I taught sailing at Mesa College in San Diego.  Later moving to Lake Tahoe and then San Francisco, purchased a 21’ sailboat, then later a 30’ sailboat, respectively.  I was moved by my employer, FUJIFILM along with my 30’ sailboat to Seattle.  Raised twin girls in Woodinville, WA, and we would take them sailing each summer. 

We have covered the entire Puget Sound and Straits of Georgia.   I currently hold the SLC License for International Sailing.  I used it last year to charter out of Split, Croatia and sail the Dalmatian Islands.    Currently, my new chapter, I just purchased a Bayliner 2452 moored at Whiskey Hill.  We will see how it goes without my sheets.

  1. Thank you Web Wench Ms. Welker for all your work getting this up and going.

  2. Are there any club meetings or get togethers this summer other than the cruise south?

    Just curious – thanks, Dale Richards

  3. Dale, great hearing from you love to see people starting to use the Web site (-: That is an excellent question in the Year of the COVID we are trying to move cautiously. Currently, we have the Lopez Cup Sailboat race scheduled for September 12; hopefully, by then we can have a get-together after the race. Russ is trying to figure out a place in the US that we can have the Commodore Cruise He is working for August 29, but Mr. COVID is making that plan challenging, but stay tuned.
