Secretary Carol Perkes

November 2017

Please allow me to introduce myself, electronically at least. My name is Carol Perkes and this is my second go round as the CIYC Secretary. Being relatively new to the sport, I am gradually learning the “ropes” of sailing. It is my hope that my career skills and experience will continue to be of benefit to the Club in its administrative activities.
Although the sailing season is over for the time being, the Executive Committee continues to meet during the winter – as there is still a surprising amount of work to be done behind the scenes in planning for the upcoming year. Please feel free to contact me if I can assist you in booking the club or when you have an update to the roster information. My email address is
I look forward to meeting you and getting to know you, if I haven’t already, at social gatherings that take place over the winter – or – in the next boating season!

January 2018

Greetings and welcome to the Secretary’s webpage at Cedar Island Yacht Club. I am still getting my feet wet with sailing; having taken the Learn-to-Sail course a few years ago, and I also had a great time participating in Island Girls Sailing Adventure in each of the last two years. We recently bought our first sailboat and my sailing education continues. The more I learn, the more I realize how very little I know.
This is my second year in my role as Secretary of Cedar Island Yacht Club. I hold a similar position in the business world which helps me accomplish my duties as Secretary. My responsibilities include taking care administrative duties such as clubhouse bookings, taking minutes of Executive meetings, distributing information as required, and maintaining the membership list – so be sure to keep me informed whenever there is a change to your records or contact information. It is also the Secretary’s responsibility to provide updates on work hours at each meeting of the Executive.
My main goals for this year are to continue to organize all data/information in such a way that it is easily retrievable (first by me!) and second of all by future secretaries and to provide prompt, friendly and efficient administrative assistance to the Executive and members alike. I am looking forward to continuing to serve the Club and its members. I can be reached by email at if you should require my assistance at any time.

Before you know it, Spring will be here and with it will come Launch. Come join us as we embark on a new year of fun events/activities. I look forward to seeing you there
