Meetings & Minutes

There is no meeting in August. The September membership meeting will be on September 14 at Boat U/S at 7:00 PM. Peter Trogdon, owner and President of Weems & Plath, the nationally known purveyor of all things "navigation", will be our guest speaker. Peter's speech will cover "The History of Navigation". He promises it will be fun as he covers the last 4,000 years of navigation heroes and systems used in about 40 minutes. From the Polynesians to GPS navigation you will enjoy learning some new events along the way. He will also tell us about what is happening at Weems & Plath.

Peter Trogdon grew up boating in the Pacific Northwest and now resides in Annapolis, MD. They own a Harbor 20 sailboat and a Zimmerman downeast 36, BEE WEEMS, which they have cruised on every summer since 2006, logging over 20,000 miles from the Bahamas to Maine on the Eastern seaboard and from Anacortes to Alaska in the Pacific Northwest. They have also cruised portions of the Great Loop, up the Hudson River through the Erie Canal to the Great Lakes and up to Lake Champlain and Montreal. Peter has cruised offshore in the Pacific, Atlantic, Caribbean, and Mediterranean. Peter has been the owner of Weems & Plath since 1995.

The minutes of recent membership meetings may be found in our archives here.
