Freedom day was the first in a series of initiatives to develop youth sailing in Hout Bay, with almost perfect conditions in the bay for learning and improving sailing skills.

R.I.P. - Tony Neil

Thanks to Alasdair McArthur, former HBYC commodore, for writing this piece:

Tony Neil

I have just learned over the weekend of the passing away of Tony Neil - a past flag officer in our club. Tony was a personality, with great presence, and one who attracted many sponsors and new members to the beach sailing side of our club. He undoubtedly helped build our club in to one of the best in the Cape at the time.

A great pal of the water and competitor on, he was greatly missed when he decided to return to Perth Australia in the late eighty’s, where he still indulged in his golf and sailing a Hobbie 18.

It is sad that we wont hear the voice of Australia again. Fair winds Tony.
