A word from the Commodore

commodoreDear members and friends,

Welcome to our information site on the web.
You will find here a little bit of ourselves, how things happen at the Club, news on our activities and regattas, some information for the newcomers, and much interesting things.

This year marks the Club’s 60th anniversary. We hope to mark this with various actions throughout the year and I’m sure that your usual enthusiasm will make this year even more special.

The Club de voile de Senneville Yacht Club continues to promote the fundamental values of the Club between the Members, the Club Officers and the community of boaters. Among other things, respect, politeness, good humor, cooperation, camaraderie, know-how, security and good seamanship.
Also, I must thank our Executive and all our Members that consistently spend countless hours to make our Club a pleasant place where we all look forward to meet and practice our favorite sport.
Hoping to see you soon,

Jean-François Gagnon
Commodore
