Stardate 11317.0

Captain's Log: Stardate 11317.0
Every once in a while, something amazing happens on the Enterprise. Here are just a few, all recorded in the previous log entries.

September 24, 2001 (Stardate 10173.1) - The first Starfleet commendation ever awarded for the creation and consumption of butt cake.

June 7, 2005 (Stardate 10543.3) - The first time we stepped on board the Enterprise-B.

June 25, 2007 (Stardate 10748.2) - The first of many occurrences of a spinnaker clusterfuck, leading this log to be #1 in search results for the term on Google.

July 30, 2007 (Stardate 10757.8) - The Enterprise takes a first-to-finish gun in the Around Long Island Regatta.

September 8, 2011 (Stardate 11168.8) - The Enterprise finishes and wins a Wednesday Night Race with just the main up for most of the last leg of the race.

September 21, 2011 (Stardate 11172.6) - The first Enterprise captain in Starfleet history gets engaged.

But on this Stardate, 11317.0, upon glancing through the records on Sailing Anarchy, we discovered this posting dated March 1, 2013 from John Esposito:

I will almost never do this, and probably will never do it again.
But I need to publicly apoligize to Edd for getting on him and abusing him over the years on this site, Although we may never see eye to eye, but after only being commodore for a week and sending out emails to the reps for votes and having to wait for a day or two for a response and from 1 club's rep NO response I don't know how he did this for 13 years and actually did a pretty damn good job. Little did I know what he did behind the scenes.
If I had it my way I would clen house on a couple of reps, but it's not up to me to decide on the reps but the yacht clubs to send a rep that actually wants to be part of the decision making {CIYC}.
So Edd for all the shit I gave you over the years , well done on the job you did for EBYRA, and I have my work cut out for me.
I actually look forward to working with you on certain aspects of EBYRA.

I know, I know, I'm getting soft!"

And, in case it disappears somehow, here's a screenshot:


And, yes, this is the same John Esposito, also known as Espo, who is the subject of the super-long thread entitled "Espo is a dick".

Thoroughly appreciated, but about as shocking as taking a bath with a plasma coil. Nevertheless, the apology is accepted and I'll be happy to provide John with advice along the way in what it takes to run EBYRA, especially in dealing with, as one person stated, "challenging personalities."

Meanwhile, all planning and preparations are being done to ensure the Enterprise's launch in May so that she may, once again, boldly go.
