If these two have been accused of stealing from the club under their management, than someone other than an inside lawyer should be investigating...You can't run a story based on one side and call it good.This is a drinking club with many strikes against it.

Bill is correct. IJ - why don't you dig a bit deeper on the other side of the story .....that will be newsworthy.

1.. I want a woman who believes the women at work don't like her because they
are intimidated by her looks, oh yea, the men, don't like you because you
have a superior intellect and you’re a threat—mother fucking misogynists!

2. I want a woman who will only marry a rich white guy, but will sleep
with black men-after all, she's into equal opportunity when it come
to her lust. Bisexuality is also acceptable as long as you’re drunk!

3. I want a woman who calls people early in the morning and blames it all
on the alcohol.

4. I want a woman who yells at the homeless for smoking on street. They
are just a waste of space anyway and “Honestly”--just plain lazy!

5. I want a woman who sends her food orders back regularly, because she's
also a "Foodie", and those Morons can't do anything right!

6. I want a strict vegetarian- who tells everyone how to eat, but will eat
sushi because fish really don't count and fish oil is good for your hair-

7. I want a women whom scolds me if I make a politically incorrect statement
once a year, but she is allowed to say what ever comes to mind--daily!

8. I want a woman who tells me I need to make more money, but then complains
I work too much.

9.. I want a woman whom refers to younger attractive women as cheap and
whorrish (yea, I know my spelling is wrong, and the ability to point out grammatical, or spelling errors in love letters would be great)!!Yea!!

10. Ever wonder when the looks go so does the Money Maker? Than you spend the rest of your life fighting
with other women and trying to regain the power of youth. Fighting--botox and painkillers.

11. Marin has more lonely angry women than any place on earth. Why?

I was taking my daily walk on Bridgeway when I saw two women before my eyes. I saw them arguing about their boats and saw that trouble was brewing. As a professional nurse with an extreme sense of awareness, I stopped to see what was wrong with the situation. As I went in between them with no regard to my safety a large group of pedestrians gathered, all they were doing was gawking and talking on their cell phones. As a professional nurse I took charge of the situation and yelled for someone to call the police and 911. One of the spectators passed out in front of me. I then went on to administer first aid because as a professional nurse, this is what I am trained to do. The police arrived first and all but one stayed. As a professional nurse I am sure they ran because they were afraid of a lawsuit. As the police could do nothing amidst the chaos, the police said I saved their lives and was a hero. I told them that I am not a hero I am a professional nurse whose duty is to save people. I am also a humble and modest professional nurse and do not like to be called a hero. As a professional nurse, I just do what I do because this is what I do

Thanks "Marin Jim"...we know you're not the real nurse but you'd give Tina Fey a good run. There are people who still can't appreciate good satire though and that is sad.

BTW I am a longtime Sausalito resident and this IS my kind of news...and people actually do sail out of the SCC. They run some great races which I cherish the memory of from younger days...and they are sailors so of course they can drink pretty well.

Should be quite an insightful story from the real nurse once she has time to respond from Haiti so I'm setting my alert!

Sounds like a microcosm for all of Sausalito, if not America. No more fun times.
Now its all about politics and lawyers. How about boating in general? I've been involved
with boats since the 1950s. Boating was a ton of fun. Remember when Opening Day was a monumental event and the Bay was covered with decorated boats? Nowadays...its just a hollow shell of its past glory. And the boats- Today, the yacht harbors are full of boat- that's obvious- but almost NONE of them ever move. Their only use is as places to live (most often in the secretive "sneak-aboard" mode...and berth rents are sky-high. Why do owners keep them? Ha- they are STUCK with them...that's why. Nobody is buying. Oh, sure, there are a few rich folks and true enthusiasts that still do the boating thing, but the glory days are over. And that's kinda sad, I think... I wonder if the low-maintenance fiberglas boat has something to do with this. In the old wood days, an owner really had to be involved with their boat or it would just die in a few years. Today's fiberglass boats can languish at the pier for decades, unused and ignored....

Thank you for this. It is exactly the point and the reason. None of the other comments really matter. This is the crux of the news story.

Sham elections

I've loved being a part of the Sausalito Cruising Club and its very sad these problems are going on. I truly hope the Club continues

The so called election was a Sham...it was supposed to be confidential, but yesterday I was told my application for renewal will be turned down because I voted for the "renegade" board.
If the election was secret, how did they know who I voted for?
