Jim Bateman joins Long Beach Yacht Club

Long Beach has the best sailing conditions in Southern California and I am lucky enough to live near the beach and take full advantage of this great resource.

As a active racer in Southern California I’ve enjoyed the hospitality and camaraderie of Long Beach Yacht Club for many years. In fact my very first So Cal regatta was Long Beach Race Week in 1985 which we won class honors with a great crew on a great boat  Wall Street Duck. When I moved to Southern California in 1996 I sailed dinghies and one-design keel boats. I joined Alamitos Bay Yacht Club that year and worked my way through the committees, board and flag offices to be Commodore in 2007. I remain very active at ABYC. See www.abyc.org .   LBYC is my neighborhood club and provides me with a great opportunity to get to know another whole group of Long Beach people. As I continue to build my consulting practice and attempt to make it more Long Beach centric, I believe LBYC will be a great resource for me to get better connected to my community. See www.lbyc.org

25 years after my first Long Beach Race Week  here I am  with “Code Blue” Skipper Bob Marcus and crew accepting our class victory at LBRW 2010.

Since getting actively involved is the best way to meet new people and get them to know who you are, I am  co-chairing Ulmann Sails presents Long Beach Race Week 2011. This is the West Coasts largest big boat regatta and it is co-hosted by my two favorite clubs – ABYC and LBYC. See www.lbwr.org.

I am a partner with B2B CFO® the nation’s largest part-time CFO firm recently recognized by Inc. magazine as one of the fastest growing companies in the United States. Email me at jbateman@b2bcfo.com and we can arrange a meeting to discusss your company’s needs.
