    The Tarnishing of the Annapolis Yacht Club - Commodore Hartman Needs to Resign

    As a two term member of a great lakes yacht club board of directors, the AYC commodores comments are cringe worthy and unbecoming of any chief executive.  I'm not sure I could continue to serve with such a person.
