"While many people think sailing is all smooth seas, sunshine, sunsets, and beautiful beaches, it’s also a lot of hard work and can be incredibly challenging. As Robert Brault once said 'Life is like sailing, you can use any wind to go any direction.' Come join us at GRSC and find your own direction." ~ Commodore Collin Beighley
2020 GRSC Board of Directors
Commodore Collin Beighley lives in Grand Haven, MI with his wife and two wonderful boys. In addition to being a member of the club for over 10 years, and sailing with his brother Nathan on Baneberry, he is the third Beighley in the last 15 years to be Commodore of GRSC. When he’s not sailing, you may find Collin on enjoying his Harley, or chasing his two boys around the family cabin up in Fountain, MI.
Marshall Lystra started sailing in 1982 at the age of four years old when his parents Edward and Helen (Former GRSC Commodore) purchased their family cruiser Pirate, an Allied Seawind 30. Marshall is a High School Teacher in Muskegon and re-joined the GRSC a few years ago. On the water you’ll find Marshall racing with GRSC, or with his partner Melanie and his son Warner sailing Fenna Rose, their S2 8.6.
