From the Commodore’s Desk…
Welcome to the newly revised AYC website. This is a new effort at taking a great idea and trying to make it even better. What you see before you is the result of efforts to upgrade and add features to one of our main communication tools, the AYC website. Much of what was created before is being utilized in the new design. This is so that members and anyone wanting to find out about sailing in Arizona, can interact with our site. Change always seems tough but the technologies of today require adaptation.
Please join me in a well deserved thank you to Mike Ferring for his multiple years of service as webmaster, shaping and giving the website much of its look and style. Mike has done a fabulous job with our website. Nicely done! After many years of dedication, Mike made his decision to pass the baton on. Rob Gibbs has accepted the challenge as the new webmaster and stepped up to help renovate the new website you see before you.
There are new social networking tools embedded into this website. These enable a broader range of communication formats that allow you to be notified directly of current events and activities when they are posted. As with all new things, it will take time to shape it into the mature product our former web sight had become but it will allow for easier maintenance and facilitate a broader outreach.
Yours in sailing,
