Thank you for placing confidence in me and promoting me to be president. Thanks again to the outgoing president Chris Kelly for his work over the years and along with Andrew Cohen for his generous “after meeting” refreshments. Welcome also to the new committee, and to our new members, Ron Morley, Robert Tolano, and Greg Barwick.
Most of the winter is now over and we’re now looking forward to the better boating weather. As well as our regular sailing days, our annual weekend away will be at Paynesville later this year and we hope for a good turnout to all events, as usual.
There will be No Club night this month but the day cruise on the Lady Cutler to meet the entry of Tenacious to Port Phillip on 14 August will be a good substitute. It should be an impressive sight and a good social outing for all as well.
Although the committee has some good ideas we are always seeking direction for future club nights and any projects. If you have any suggestions, please don’t hesitate in contacting me or a committee member with your proposal.
Finally, I would like to thank all those who have renewed their memberships, and encourage those who have yet to do so to renew now. Membership dues can be paid direct through the WBA website these days, which makes the process pretty easy.
