Commodore David Dennett
Vice Commodore Bill Kieltyka
Update on the Story Below.
Hugh and Betty made a couple of trips to their Maine home during the summer and fall of 2011, were able to take part in some of our CYC weekend activities, visited a few restaurants with friends, and then managed to get back to Port Washington to allow Hugh to go back to work. Yes, Hugh is still at it, teaching at the SUNY Maritime College and going to sea to give his expert instruction to the on board cadets! Best wishes Captain Stephens, and smooth sailing!
During the summer of 2012, Betty and Captain Hugh were able to spend a month here on the lake. They attended our annual meeting held at the Augusta Country club as well as numerous other weekly events. It certainly is nice to see them able to spend time visiting here in the spot they love so much. We sure look forward to seeing them again next summer!
Dave, Bill, and Hugh
David, Bill, and former Commodore, Hugh Stephens our current Keeper of the Light, are ready to relax at the Vice Commodore's house on the evening of January 4, 2009. Hugh and his wife, Betty, were at their home on the lake to celebrate the beginning of a new year and to get a brief respite from Port Washington, NY where they are both still very busy! Hugh, in fact, is now teaching at a nearby college! Take a look at a portion of his email to the Commodore: "I have been appointed Adjunct Instructor at SUNY Maritime College in the Bronx and begin teaching Lifeboat Handling, Firefighting and a Distress Radio Operation on January 14, 2009. I will be at SUNY Maritime 3 days a week and Kingsborough Community for 2 days."
Keeping Up With Hugh!
A June 2010 email from Hugh states in part, "Betty couldn't make the trip with me this year on the N.Y. State Maritime Academy training ship. We've been to Spain and Greece and are due in Ireland on the 22nd of June. Have 350 cadets, 100 officers, instructors and crew aboard. We'll be sending these cadets home in Ireland and bringing aboard 300 more for an additional 45 days of shipboard indoctrination and instruction. We then sail for Brest, France, Malta and home.
I am teaching Nautical Science and Rules of the Nautical Road. Have about 135 students in 9 sections. We teach 7 days a week, have had 6 days in port out of 45 and keep quite a strenous schedule.
We will be back in the States in early August. We're hoping to get a little time off then to come to Maine. We miss you all and Maine so much. Our best to all in CYC and keep our Ladies Delight burning. From the high seas, aboard the T/S Empire State VI." Hugh
How about that! What a guy! Congratulations Captain Hugh!

Here's Commodore David along with a very happy-to-drive Ashton, his number one grandson. In fact this would be his only grandson, although he has 6 really super granddaughters, all number one to him!!! How about that.
Commodore Dave mixes up the raffle tickets in the basket held by Diane Schrader, CYC Merchandise Chair, at the Marstons Boat-in on September 6, 2008.
Vice Commodore Bill Kieltyka and his wife Evelyn were the winners of that wonderful Paul Plumer drawing of our lighthouse! Congratulations!
So.....keep your eye out for your Commodore, his wife Vivian, and their wondrous dog Amos (see below) as they cruise our gorgeous Lake Cobbosseecontee on a very regular basis. They will be seen in this Playbouy party barge with the burgundy top and plastic sides. That protection allows many extended hours on the lake, sometimes regardless of the temperature! Please wave and say, "Hello."
Watch for the blue Commodore's flag flying on the starboard side aft. Give us a wave!
Is this the current CYC Commodore? Not quite for sure! The current Commodore has probably never caught fish like this old guide, Fawn Mason, displays here in this antique photo!
"And a grand ole time was had by all."
Can you pick out some of the CYC Officers and Executive Committee members in the following photos taken at activities during the summer of 2006. As you can tell, our activities are definitely "good times." Take advantage of your opportunity to become a member of the Cobbosseecontee Yacht Club and participate with us this coming summer!
