A Message from President Shaun Graser
Welcome to IOBG District 8,
It will be my distinct honor to serve as your President for 2016. The goal of District 8 IOBG is to preserve the traditions of yachting and seamanship and pass those on to future generations.
According to the international IOBG website: “We strive to preserve the proven traditions, customs and ethics of yachting so that they may not be lost to those yet to come. We meet locally, regionally, nationally and internationally in the true spirit of camaraderie enhanced by our common bond of having been a Commodore.”
Our camaraderie is not limited to only past Commodores as we embrace all members of our member yacht clubs as well as the younger generations who will carry this knowledge forward.
We come together to pass on information, beliefs, and customs by word of mouth or by example from one generation to another. We are our heritage. We are the torchbearers of the traditions that will last well beyond our lifetimes. I hope you will join me in sharing those traditions with this generation knowing that they will share with generations to come.
