Currently looking for member to take on this position in an interim - acting capacity.
According to our rules, the position of Vice Commodore is open to nominations from the floor membership upon a vote. The continuing vacancy of this position is a serious issue for the management of the club moving forward. The current watch is actively looking for candidates with the skills and drive to learn, assist, and eventually manage the club into the next watch. If you are inclined and are passionate about having an organized sailing program in Venice, please contact the board with your inquiries or if you wish to nominate someone for consideration.

The office of VSS Vice Commodore is currently not filled. If you have what it takes to help run a sailing club or know someone who does, please contact the other officers.
The day sail on April 22nd was a huge SUCCESS! We had 5 participating boats and approximately 20 people out on the water. We couldn't have asked for better weather. Many thanks to the boat owners for allowing the use of their boats and the many members that participated as crew. We topped the afternoon off at Marker 4 with food and drinks. We've posted some pics on the VSS website, so please check them out. Hopefully, there will be many more day sails in the VSS future.
VSS Vice Commodore
Our attempt to get a day-sail in for January was washed out, but February will work out better. So we are putting together a day sail on Saturday, February 10th to see if we can generate any interest in just sailing together. We plan on heading out of the Jetty at about 1:00. There is no set course, just head for a sailboat and shout "Ahoy!" as you pass by.
Greetings from the VSS Vice Commodore's Corner. I hope everyone had a very happy, safe, and satisfying holiday season!
A big " Thank You " to all who braved the Icy wind and waves. You made this year's Steak & Sail fun and memorable, even if no-one could sail there. If anyone has pictures of the event that they'd like to share with the squadron, we'd love to display them on the web site. This was a wonderful way to get to know new members, as well as to visit with existing members. I hope we have many more fun filled events together.
A special Thanks to Keith Embree who took the time to motor down to the area and report depths of Stump Pass and the channel from the ICW to Rum Bay. Even though we couldn't sail down, the information was critical. Thanks again Keith!
