April On Watch

Very nice article about Linc [On Watch: Linc Schoenberger, April 2012]. Many thanks to WindCheck for recognizing a great person in our sport

I just got home after a week in Vancouver, and found the April WindCheck in the mail.

What a surprise and honor! I can only say that important, longtime friends like you and John [McArthur] mean more to me than you can possibly know.

Back in Business in Bridgeport, CT

Tropical Storm Irene hit Black Rock Yacht Club hard. It destroyed our pier and damaged our clubhouse. The pier was rebuilt in time for the 2011 season, and I am proud to say it survived Sandy. Our plans to repair the clubhouse were delayed only about one month due to Sandy.

I am pleased to say that the main clubhouse has been repaired. Black Rock Yacht Club is open and fully functional. I encourage you to add our club to your summer cruise destination plans.

Who Owns WindCheck?

Does BLT own WindCheck? How can a boating magazine be pro-BLT? It does not make any sense.

John Owen, via email

John – We’re not sure what made you determine that WindCheck is owned by BLT (Building and Land Technology), or that we are ‘pro-BLT.’ In our December 2012 issue we published an interview with John Freeman (General Counsel and Senior Vice President of the Harbor Point Development Company), who answered questions about how BLT handled the closing of Yacht Haven, how the closing affected regional boat owners, and BLT’s plans to fulfill their obligation to the boating community.

In our January/February 2013 issue, we published two letters from Save Our Boatyard rebutting some of Freeman’s statements. In our upcoming June issue, we are running an article by Maureen Boylan and Randy Dinter of Save Our Boatyard that will address the continued concerns of the boating public. We have not catered to one side of this issue or the other. We strive to present both sides of every issue while maintaining editorial neutrality. We want to see the boating community served, and are acting as a liaison in an effort to expedite the process and see Stamford return to the boating haven it was.
