First of all, I'd like to Thank You all for giving me the chance to be Star Class President for another 4 years.
Congratulations to the elected International, National, Fleet, and District officers. I look forward to working with this outstanding group of people as we move the Class forward.
I am very pleased to announce that Joe Knowles will be taking over as chairman of the Class Technical Advisory Board. Joe was Chief Measurer of the Class for many years, and has remained active on the TAB. His knowledge of the class rules and experience in international technical affairs will be of great benefit to the class in the coming years.
Hannes Gubler is retiring as TAB chairman after serving the class very well over the past few years. We all thank Hannes for his contributions, and look forward to having his continued participation on the TAB.
Foss Miller and John A. MacCausland have agreed to serve on the TAB. Both are long time Star sailors and bring great technical expertise and experience to the group.
Bill Parks is retiring as Judiciary Board Chairman. Bill won a bronze medal in the 1960 Olympics, and has been a major contributor to the Star Class over the past 50+ years. He served as Class President from 1974-1978. We thank Bill for his service and congratulate him on his election as Vice Commodore.
I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank Barton Beek, who retired from the Judiciary Board in 2005, for his many years of service to the Star Class.
Steve Gould has agreed to serve as chairman of the Judiciary Board for the coming year. Steve, an attorney in the San Francisco area, brings years of Star sailing experience to the job. Jack Lynch moves from alternate to full member of the JB, to serve for 5 years. Another alternate member will be appointed at the March Class Management Committee meeting.
