On Thursday, March 15th, the Change of Watch was held at Le Petite Tonneau in Toranomon. A brief overview of what the squadron did in 2017 was given to the members who attended. Then, Bill Van Alstine, continuing as commander, was sworn in by Dick Schultz in his snazzy pink Nantucket canvas jacket. After that, the plans for the coming year were announced. Finally, food and drink and conversation were enjoyed by all until the raffle and prizes to end the evening at about 10.
The TSPS Bridge for 2018 hopes to continue and extend the progress made in 2017 in providing more opportunities for members to get out on the water. While it is still being decided whether to continue the Day on the Water activity at Velasis Marina, Hayama Marina Yacht Club has offered sailboat rental and sail training opportunities at rates given their members. More information about this, as well as the cruises and classes we have lined up, will be forthcoming.
See every on the water this year!
