California group elects officers


Recreational Boaters of California elected new officers for 2010 at its recent annual meeting.

They include president Anne Sacks; vice president-north Linda Bendsen; vice president-south Cleve Hardaker; treasurer Bob White and past president Dave Breninger.

"We devoted our annual business meeting to planning advocacy efforts to address several serious challenges," Sacks said in a statement. "These include the state water board's proposed marina and club permit that would impose costs totaling hundreds of thousands of dollars on facilities, together with a number of onerous new mandates."

The group is also working to combat restrictions on boating access and the consequences of boaters having to use fuel that includes ethanol.
