2018 Commodores Cup Social and After Race Party
By Katie Sparks, Social Committee Chair
The 2018 Commodores Cup Social and After Race Party at JBs on the Beach was a huge success! 110 members and crew attended this lively event to honor all Commodores who have served HISC. Bob Schuldenfrei announced that we may have broken the record for the largest after race party ever! Cheers all around!
Check in went smoothly and the party started at 5:30 with Commodores Rum Punch, coconut shrimp, conch fritters, sesame encrusted tuna, and much more. Over the next hour or so, everyone enjoyed the food and atmosphere, sharing stories of their day on the water as well as hearing tales from the past. The positive energy in the room was palpable. It was an amazing opportunity to socialize with fellow club members, meet new friends, and of course, discuss sailing.
Before the race results, each Commodore was recognized and thanked for their tireless commitment with an enthusiastic round of applause. Commodores in attendance were: Dick Simmons 1976, Pete Gustafson 1996, Binnie Hightower 1997, Doug Knickerbocker 1998, Tom Garvey 2000, John Antweiler 2001, Jim Wallace 2005, Hal Steward 2006, Tim Leonard 2007, Michael Duvall 2011, Maureen Leonard 2013, Frank Tippett 2014, Suzi Wehe 2015, Larry Geller 2016, Hector Arrillaga 2017, and Bob Schuldenfrei 2018.
It was a fantastic evening and we hope to see everyone there next year!
Thank you again to our Commodores and thank you to the fellow Social Committee members that made this event possible: Christeen Pozniak, Pat Schuldenfrei, Martine Montgomery, and Melisa Gingold! Thank you also to Barbara Wallace, Race Chair, for your collaboration to make this event so successful!
