Commodore’s Corner

Commodore 2017-2019 | Dave Kaloski

Fellow Members,

I consider being a member of the Moriches Yacht Club a sincere privilege. I remember when my family and I joined, one of the first things that ran through my mind was that the Yacht Club was our own piece of paradise. It was a place that we could go to escape the hectic pace of our everyday life and unwind.

As I became more involved – working my way up to the ranks of commodore – it has always been my goal to share with fellow and potential members, the uniqueness of MYC. It’s a place to gather, to celebrate, to meditate, to enjoy your morning coffee or a Friday night libation…so my main message to you as your humble commodore is to:

• COME DOWN
• UNPLUG
• RELAX
• SOAK UP THE SALT AIR
• CONTRIBUTE TO THE CAUSE

In closing, I want to thank the Board of Governors for their unwavering dedication and continued support. Together, we will work to preserve the beauty, character and traditions of MYC, while welcoming new ideas that will benefit the membership.

Respectfully,
Dave Kaloski
