Over t he Waves The Mont hly Newslet t er of t he W ickford Yacht Club February 2017

COMMODORE'S LOG If you didn?t have a chance to see the moonrise this past week, especially Friday, you missed a real treat! It?s a well-known fact that moonrise in RI is best viewed from the Wickford Yacht Club. So, if you weren?t Bar bar a Jack son there, consider bringing your favorite beverage and joining us some Friday starting at 6 PM. It?s a great way, especially in winter, to get to know a few club members better, and look out over the harbor as the moon comes up over the horizon. Our dredging is being finalized this month. A huge thank you goes to Jon Colby for getting that project behind us for another decade or so. Bob Brockway is replacing our ice machine compressor and key parts before he goes south. The ice machine was kind enough to wait until January 2 to finally make its last batch of ice. What timing! If you are going to head out of town for a while, you should be aware that in order to extend reciprocity, some Clubs are requiring a signed letter on the stationary of your originating club (that?s us) stating you are a member in good standing for the 2017 membership season. If you want such a letter, you?ll need to pay your 2017 dues and include a self-addressed envelope in your payment so we know that your Letter of Good Standing will get to you wherever you happen to be. Already paid your dues? Send an email to me at [email protected] and I will email you a PDF. What do you do with your warn out burgee? Put it in the Shop?s mail slot. We will be providing these burgees to favorite bars and hot spots. Take a look at the list of 2017 events somewhere in this document. If we are going to have a great year, you need to volunteer to work on at least one of the events shown by calling Clare Northrup, our social chair. I don?t want to jinx It, BUT? there will be a BYO everything party on Super Sunday if? .. Only 125 days +/- to Commissioning! BJ

CROSSING THE BAR In December, we bade farewell to one of our best ? Mike Gale. He enjoyed one last season of cruising the familiar waters of Narragansett Bay on his beloved 34?Pearson, Galadriel, which he shared with his first mate Lee for 27 years. Intellectually curious, kind, a considerate and tolerant teacher and always willing to lend a hand to the race committee - and he even raced last summer. A valued friend to many at WYC. -David Abell

VICE COM M ODORE By the time you read this, twelve club members will have formed a small armada invading the warm waters of the BVI's. (We have left cooler and warmer behind)! Thanks to the organizational efforts of Bob and Patty Kern, we have five boats chartered with Conch Charters crewed by Mike & Sheila Mcgauvran, Neil & Joan Bergh, Bob & Patty Kern, Chuck Ebersol & Pinkie Sweet-Holland, Glen & Katie Connell, and Elaine & Dick Lemieux. The vessels will be fortified with additional family and friends. The Wickford colors will be gallantly flown and in some instances planted on foreign soil claiming our rights to inhabit such territory (most likely bars, yacht clubs, or other deserving enterprises). Dick Lem ieu x

On a more serious note, at the last board meeting the drawing for rental privileges of our club moorings were awarded to the Cook?sand Mcgauvran?s.

Just a reminder that the payment deadline for dues and fees is February 28t h.

January 2017 February 2017

Since the January Over the Waves was distributed, our ice machine by the heads has died. This was not totally Bob Br ock w ay, Ch air unexpected and we had made a provision in our 2017 budget to replace it. The new unit will be installed and operational before I leave for a warmer climate later this month. On the bright side, the new ice machine is costing us less than we had budgeted! Several items in our Social Committee stores for events have gone missing or have been misplaced. The Committee asked that their storage areas be secured so that tablecloths, napkins and decorations are available for future events. I mentioned last month that security was being added to the upstairs Social Closets. I have now locked these areas. Our Social Committee Chair, Clare Northrup has the keys to these areas. Members using the Club are asked to tidy-up when they are ready to leave. This also pertains to those members using the Club on Friday evenings Happy Hours. By that, I mean members should pick up items from the floor and carpets, toss small garbage into the trashcans, remove larger items and place them in the dumpster. If you or your guests have rearranged the furniture, please take the time to return it to its former arrangement. Please make sure the water is off, windows are shut, the heat is turned down, the lights are out and the doors are locked, by the last one to leave. The fans in the Great Room run 24/7. This is a third reminder that Jane and I spend time down south during the winter. During my time away, Steve Johnson, our Assistant House Committee Chair, will be covering during my absence. Please contact Steve by the contact information in our directory with any concerns or problems. I appreciate his willingness to jump in and allow me to travel. Thank you Steve! I will be back on duty in April. I can always be reached by cell phone, text and email if you need to express a concern or you have an issue with a House related matter.

FLEET CAPTAIN Plans are already underway for our summer of 2017 cruise. We are Bob Sh or e planning on heading east again with possible ports of call including Cuttyhunk, Redbrook Harbor, Edgartown, and Falmouth. Tentative plans call for the Cruise to start on Saturday, July 29th and end with a cruise dinner (looking at a couple of venues in Falmouth) on Thursday night, August 3rd. I am soliciting volunteers for a cruise committee and would appreciate the assistance from anyone willing to help out. Please contact at [email protected] or at (401) 741-6485 if you are interested.


SOCIAL COM M ITTEE Many, many thanks for everyone who helped out at the two fabulous New Year?s parties!

M EET THE M EM BERS - Christ ie Poore & Al Shimkus Christi and I are delighted to be new members of the Wickford Yacht Club. I was born in Washington, DC and grew up in a small Massachusetts mill town with four sisters and one brother. I have three children, six grandchildren and two step-grandchildren. I retired from the U.S. Navy in 2007 after serving in uniform for 40 Years. While in uniform, I served in Viet Nam, 1967 -1968, as a nurse anesthetist, ashore and at sea, and as a hospital commanding officer at U.S. Naval Base Guantanamo and on board the USNS COMFORT. I joined the faculty of the Naval War College on 2007 and serve in the National Security Affairs department teaching and directing the Leadership Concepts course of study. My academic interests include humanitarian assistance and disaster relief research. I speak publicly on the ethical issues surrounding the detention center on U.S Naval Base, Guantanamo. Christi and I are actively involved in our community. -Al

I am happy to be a new member of the Wickford Yacht Club, re-establishing old friendships and making new ones! I was born in Columbus, Ohio, the oldest of a robust family of eight and was raised in Maryland where I graduated from nursing school in 1971. I moved to Rhode Island in 1979, am a mother of 6 and 2 stepdaughters and boast 15 of my own grandchildren. I have earned a Master?s degree in Nursing and actively practice as an Adult Nurse Practitioner. I am actively involved in the community and St. Paul?s Church. I married Al in 2015 and together we share many interests, have 11 children and 23 grandchildren combined, which keep us very busy. I am not an active boater but enjoy the ocean and the lovely Poplar Point community.


Gen er at ion s of WYC M em ber sh ip, Bar bar a Daw son WYC is often a family affair. We have many families with two generations of members, but we also have three families represented by three generations, and probably more to come. The patriarchs are shown in these photos. Below: John Wilson, Jr., Commodore 1973 (wife Janet), followed by their son, John Wilson III, Commodore 2010 and wife Cindy, and the latest to join WYC, son Kyle and Kaitlin Wilson (with three kids, is another generation of Wilsons to come?) Left: John DiMartino, Commodore 1972 (wife Mary), followed by their son, Paul DiMartino and wife Vickie, and the latest to join, Amalia DiMartino Mullaney and husband Michael. (with two kids, will there be more DiMartino family members to join in the future?)

The Nannig family was always out in full force for the annual fall cruise to Prudence Island. Urban (Bud) Nannig, Commodore 1976 (wife Frankie), followed in membership by two of their four children, Doug Nannig and wife Elle and Paul Nannig and wife Susan, and the latest generation of Nannigs to join, Lt. Gregory Nanig and wife Kelsey.
