Officers of CANE...

CANE Officers are nominated at our annual November Planning Meeting where we also lay out the next year's activities.  at the December Holiday Party the new officers are  voted for and then assume their new roles .  Then with all members' input, the new officers help the volunteer event captains carry out the details of each activity planned throughout the year.  Ideally everyone gets involved & that makes all of our experiences as rewarding as we know they can be.. 


Members interested in serving on the board should contact any of the officers with your interest.

Kerry Reynolds

Kerry has been sailing Buzzards Bay since 2003 when she impulsively purchased an O’Day 192 at a yard sale. Both she and her husband, Jason, have recently obtained their captain’s licenses. They sail their Catalina 320, Affinity, out of Marion, MA and their favorite cruising destination is Cuttyhunk.

Vice Commodore
Dave Chase

Dave's a semi-retired SATCOM engineer who can't stop finding new things to try. He's a newbie to sailing (never set foot on a sailboat until 2015, when he went through his ASA basic to bareboat course). After a brief stint with a Hobie 18, he decided to partner on a Catalina 320 (Indigo) with Bill Winder/Katiti Kironde and can't stop finding things to fix/upgrade. Linda is still trying to figure out if she likes sailing

Scott DeHainaut

After a few years in Narragansett Bay, Scott and wife Melanie moved their C30 Invincible to Fairhaven's West Island.  Their original sailboat was a 22' that they kept in New Bedford, so getting back to Buzzards Bay was a happy return to home waters.

Michael and his wife Lynn sail their C30 Wind Seeker out of Hingham (MA). Even though a cruiser at heart, you can find Mike at the Hull's Great Chase and Figawi races. In other sailing responsibilities, Mike is the C30 Editor of Catalina's Mainsheet Magazine ( and the Cruising Captain of Hingham Yacht club.
