Our Brave New Committee!

I am very pleased to advise we were able to assemble a really good team for the 2012/13 Committee at the club AGM last night. Of some concern was the lack of nominations - just two weeks ago it looked rather bleak. Miraculously we were able to elicit a nomination for our ever popular Commodore Chris Sutton to stand again (we had to have a referendum to change the rules in fact - this was supported very convincingly as a proposal from Dudley). With this inspiration Jeremy Nel agreed to stand as Vice Commodore, and good old Rob Browne is to return for yet a another stint as Treasurer. Its a miracle!

Then we have Sam Legatt as RC Beach Sailing (actually Development sailing - Sam is doing a brilliant job there), while Keith Gemmell will stay on as Safety Officer. New to the table are Mark Hainsworth (RC Keelboats), and George Wenman (Marina Officer).

We wish them all the very best!

Dudley Turner remains our long serving Club President, and no doubt very pleased this annual process has been concluded once again . . .

On behalf of myself and the club members, a huge thank you to all the above for the time and duties they contribute to the club, which sadly, is often not fully appreciated.

Viva Hout Bay Yacht Club!
