Blue Water Cruising Club, one of the Southland’s premier Yacht Clubs, announced on January 17 the installation of Frank Conner as the Clubs’ 68th Commodore. Conner assumes the role of Commodore, replacing Paul Haven, BWCC’s 2013 leader.

Conner moves up from his 2013 role of Vice Commodore. “I am both pleased and honored to assume the role of Commodore for the coming year. We have a great club, a solid lease on Big Geiger Cove at Catalina Island, and an increasing membership. My goal is to work to continue membership growth, continue to improve our land facilities and provide enjoyable activities for our members.”

Conner, a long time sailor, joined BWCC in 2006. From the onset, Conner has been a driving force in the Club. Since joining, Conner has worked as Club Secretary, Webmaster, Editor of the Club newsletter, The Chronicle, and has served as a Flag Officer for the past five years.

Conner and his wife Patty, spend a significant period of time on Ka-ata-killa, their Tartan 37. Frank, a practicing attorney in Orange County, would rather spend time at Geiger Cove than in court. As a result, it is not unusual to find him on his boat at the Cove, WiFi active, working on his cases. When this occurs, Patty, Senior Director of Legal Affairs at Volcom, the leader in youth and young adult clothing, joins him as often as her schedule allows.

Conner recently received BWCC’s elite Cruising Award for his single-handed voyages throughout Southern California over the past five years. He says his roll of Commodore will not reduce his cruising. He looks forward to spreading the word about BWCC as he and Patty continue to cruise the Southland.
