The Club publishes a membership directory for the use of its members. This directory is distributed to the entire membership, but is not made available to any third parties. A physical copy of the membership directory may be kept in the Clubhouse. An electronic version containing member names and telephone numbers may be stored in the password-protected area of our Online Forum, which is only available to our members.
Members may opt out of having their address, email, and phone number published in the Membership Directory at the time that they complete the Membership Application Form.

If you take part in an organized race, your name may be collected in order to tally results. Race results are often shared among clubs, and may be posted on local sailing websites. Aside from the foregoing situations, we do not provide members’ information to any third parties, unless a member has specifically asked to be put in contact with someone by the Club.
Members’ information may be used by the Club to contact members concerning news and events, process membership renewals, manage instructional programs, collect race results, and to track members’ interests, skill levels and experience as relates to volunteering for club functions, work parties or using the Club’s boats.
Online Forum and Membership Directory
The Club maintains an electronic bulletin board, also known as a forum.

The forum includes an online membership directory. Directory access is also tracked by user id and IP Address. This information would only be used in response to a member complaint, or if an unusual or unreasonable level of activity in the directory was suspected.
In keeping with its recreational nature, the Club tries to be a fun place, and our members sometimes photograph Club activities and goings-on.

We may attach captions to photos, but not surnames.
Members who are sensitive to having their photos posted on the website should monitor our “Photos” web page. Anyone who wishes to have a photo of his/herself removed from our website should contact the Club Webmaster.
