>> Dear Tuna skippers,

>> drinks to share it would be great! The address is:
>> 2526 Blanding Ave, Alameda, CA 94501
>> Please dress warmly as the loft isn't heated. Below is the agenda:
>> *1) Introductions*
>> A quick round to introduce everyone
>> *2) Fleet captain vacancy*
>> Unfortunately, Garth Copenhaver is moving out of state and resigning as
>> co-fleetcaptain for personal reasons. This opens up a vacancy as
>> co-fleetcaptain and/or nationals regatta chair (see below). Fleetcaptain of

>> don't need to be an experienced racer, enthusiasm is enough. It's a great
>> opportunity to get to know a lot of great people and organize some fun
>> events. Please let me know if you are interested and we'll discuss it with
>> the fleet on the 13th.
>> *3) Nationals 2015*
>> 2015 is the 50th anniversary of the designs of our beloved Tuna. It would
>> be great to commemorate this in some way, preferably during nationals.
>> Nationals will be held at CYC on 17-19th July. We are looking for someone
>> who would be willing to be the fleet representative for this. This could be
>> together with being a (co) fleet captain or separate. There is a lot of
>> help and experience available in the fleet, but we need someone to take
>> charge. Unfortunately, I cannot be the main responsible person for personal
>> reasons. Please let me know if you are interested taking this on and work
>> with CYC and the fleet to make this a success. Again, you don't need a lot
>> of experience, enthusiasm is enough. Kristen Soetebier has volunteered to
>> help.
>> *4) Mentor program*
>> The S22 fleet has a mentor program for new members. The idea is to pair
>> newcomers to the with an experienced skipper who will answer all your
>> questions and hopefully sail with you once or twice, or shanghai you into
>> being racing crew. Please let me know if you are interested in being a
>> mentor or mentee and we'll try to pair you up. (as a shameless plug... Byte
>> Size is looking for crew for 2015).
>> *5) Racing*
