New Class Measurer Announcement


March 10, 2021


USODA is pleased to welcome John Buziak as its new Class Measurer.  John replaces Beth Danilek, who is now the Class Executive Director.


John is the incoming Fleet Captain at Fairhope YC in Alabama, and as a former member of the Pensacola Yacht Club, served as the President of the Pensacola Junior YC in 2017-18 and as the Fleet Captain in 2015-16.  He’s also been a US Sailing certified Club PRO since 2015.  He is a licensed professional engineer in Florida, Alabama and Mississippi, and the sole proprietor of Critical Path Mechanics, a construction consulting firm, since 2002.


John should be a familiar face to our sailors, as he worked alongside Beth at many USODA events, and was the measurer for the Class at the 2019 Team Trials at California Yacht Club.


I hope you will all introduce yourselves to John and volunteer to help him at measurement at a future USODA event.  And please reach out if you are interested in helping John by serving on the USODA Measurement Committee.  He can be reached at


Welcome John!
