Members of the club who have been given certified as capable of handling a club boat safely and correctly may be given the title Skipper. The title Skipper may not necessarily mean the member is qualified for all club boats and sail configurations. Any fully qualified Skipper may check out a club member as a Skipper, imposing limits on the new Skipper's liberties as necessary.
Article 5. FINANCES
The rest of the funding for the Sailing Club is requested from the Associated Students of Harvey Mudd College. The Sailing Club requests funding on the basis of projected membership and past contribution from ASHMC.
The Steward bears direct responsibility for the finances, and it is her/his responsibility to keep the books accurate and up to date. The Steward and Faculty Advisor have "signature control" over all club accounts. The HMC Director of Business Services also supervises accounts held by Harvey Mudd College for the Sailing Club. The Executive Committee, in cooperation with the Faculty Advisor, will authorize all expenditures.
