Fort Walton Yacht Club Letter Log JANUARY 2019 30° 25.60’N 86° 35.58’W At the Helm By Fleet Captain SAM GRANT Email: fleetcaptain@fwyc.org HAPPY NEW YEAR! Sam and I had fabulous time with all of you in 2018 and were hon- ored to be your Rear Commodore and Entertainment Chair. We are thankful for your par- ticipation, support and generosity. You should be proud of yourselves for raising $5700.00 for St. Jude and helping 50 local children smile a little brighter on Christmas morning because Sam and I are sure proud of you. Thank you for all the wonderful support and encouragement we received. Moving on as the newly elected Fleet Captain and Race and Regatta Chair, Sam and I have al- ready begun planning the 2019 sailing year. With the blessing of the outgoing Fleet Captain, the 2019 Frosty Nipple Series has already begun and the 2019 PHRF Zevin Series will begin in January. We have many events on the horizon and will need help from all you to be successful. We look forward to spending time with you on the water. 7
