Motion passed regarding non-NYS members entering the marina:
Any persons wishing to enter the marina to service or maintain a vessel and who are not NYS members (who are permitted under these by-laws to enter the Marina) must first obtain permission from the Yard Manager, or his delegate. It is the berth holder’s responsibility to ensure any contractor they wish to employ has appropriate insurances and complies with this rule.
Motion passed regarding formation of a syndicate:
By Law 6.1 be changed to read as follows:
A syndicate of up to ten Senior or Life members of the Squadron may apply (to go onto the waiting list) for a berth, pen or mooring. For purposes of certainty, there is no other process enabling a syndicate to obtain an interest in a berth, pen or mooring.
There was concern raised that the gate to the marina and the double gate to the club house yard were being left open on occasions. Members are asked to be diligent about ensuring all gates are closed
