Clover Island Yacht Club

Board of Directors

Commodore - Dan Bunn


My wife Kathie and I have been members for 25 years. I have served on the Board of Directors several times in the past, and look forward to again helping to govern the club.  I firmly believe that we're the best yacht club out there and we continue to prove that with our participation in activities, cruises, and social events.



Vice-Commodore - Ryan Smith



My wife Chayo and I have been members of the CIYC for 12 years now.  I have been an avid boater in the Tri-Cities almost all my life and enjoy the privilege and convenience that being a member the CIYC brings to my family as well as all of the friendships and good times we have experienced at CIYC.  My goals this year are to ensure transparency within the CIYC, protect the goals and values of the club, and ultimately help make the CIYC a place where we can all come to have fun and enjoy each other.


Secretary - Julia Cunningham

My husband Larry and I have been active members of Clover Island Yacht Club since 2006 and have hosted parties and cruises as well as enjoyed many lazy days rafted up with friends around the beautiful Columbia and Snake Rivers.  While I have lived in many locations across the U.S., I have come to love this area, and am happiest when I am on or near the water.  I am pleased to commit my time and talents to shaping CIYC as we enter the next decade of its storied existence.

Docks Director - Chuck Stack


My wife Gayle and I have been members since 1993.  I have been active in the Club since we joined.  I have served previously on the Board, being the Commodore in 2009 and leading the efforts of building the new clubhouse.  I enjoy being around the club and providing guidance, when needed, to other Board members.  I look forward to bringing experience and history to once again help lead the club to preserve the values that we have worked toward for so many years.

Cruise & Entertainment Director - Mike Bass


My wife Kerry and I have been active members of CIYC for over 4 years.  In September of 2014 we purchased our first boat.  In March of 2015 we were invited to our first party at CIYC and quickly recognized the endless amount of knowledge and experience of the yacht club members.  It only took a few days for us to decide we wanted to join.  I look forward to helping to improve, manage, maintain and grow the yacht club!

Buildings & Grounds Director - Steve Sigler


Genie and I joined CIYC in 2005.  I was on the Board from 2009 to 2013 and was Commodore in 2012.  I look forward to again serving on the Board to ensure that CIYC remains the friendliest yacht club on the Columbia River.


Past Commodore - Dorothy Hansen


I have enjoyed membership in the CIYC for 25 years.  Over these years I have participated with my husband Dale in many CIYC activities including Lighted Boat Parades, organizing placement of mooring buoys in the local rivers for general public use, work parties, re-writing CIYC By-Laws and Rules, and have provided helping hands for special projects as needed.  After retiring with 35 years at Hanford from a senior management Human Resources position, we traveled to all seven continents as well as 50 states plus Puerto Rico.  Becoming a CIYC Board Member is a great honor and I plan to work very hard to help the CIYC continue to be a fun, desirable organization for friends to gather, play and work.
