Anne Wech is our newly appointed Port Captain for Geneva State Park, Ohio (E-6.5). Let's give her a warm welcome when we see her! Here's a little background about her and her husband Barry...
Ann and Barry have been boating together for the past 30 years. They have cruised the Florida waters and most of the Great Lakes. They did the Trent-Seven Waterway twice, and have done most of the Intercostal Waterway. They have been the marina manager at the Geneva State Park Marina (a 391-slip marina) for the past five years and were previously the marina manager at Everglades National Park in Florida, for seven years.

Most members would agree that it's official boating season... especially when we have our summer Lifeline magazine at hand! There are so many events—there's no getting bored! You can plan ahead by reading all about summer and the events coming up in the not-as-near future. You may want to "Avoid Sinking" while out on the water, so be sure to read the article on the lesson learned aboard the 56-foot sailboat Monterey! We're at the second of three installments of the Founders Award and encourage you to read past and future issues to follow the stories.
