LETTER FROM THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS
We have been commissioned to assume the government of our beloved club in a very special year for the half century of life that we have completed, although also marked by sadness for the death of Mr. Rafael Olmedo Limeses.
He, along with his team, friends and fellow board members, Mr. Alfonso Paz Andrade, Mr. Jose Manuel Piñeiro, Mr. Jacobo Fontán, Mr. Carlos Soto and Mr. Rafael Barreras, have managed to place the club at the highest level of the sport of sailing, and turn the institution, almost unique today, into one of the most prestigious sports entities on the Spanish nautical scene. For these reasons we want our first public words to be of thanks to them and in recognition of their work.
Secondly, we want to tell everyone that we assume the responsibility of developing the social and sports management of the club in the coming months with humility, enthusiasm and commitment. We will program a series of events to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the founding of our club, and we will celebrate our classic regattas with a different format, since it is the fortieth anniversary of the Conde de Gondomar Trophy and the thirtieth anniversary of the Príncipe de Asturias Trophy. We now have several months of work ahead of us in which we hope that, with your collaboration and help, these celebrations will be a complete success.
Once this period has passed, and before the end of the year, it is our intention to call elections, so that all of us have the opportunity to elect those who will assume the responsibility of preserving and improving the sporting and social heritage of our club.
Without further ado, welcome a greeting,
The Board of Directors
