Members listened to Commodore John Keast open the proceedings with a summary of the season.

He said that the club had successfully expanded the number of junior sailors in the membership this year.

To mark this point, Scott Tobin, the training centre principle, and Alastair Watson, the vice-commodore, arranged for all club juniors to be awarded for their fantastic commitment this year.

Awards also went to young sailors for showing great skills, including, David Clapp (junior race crew), Sofia Abrahams (junior ladies helm), Charlie Pickering (best male from RYA training courses) and Christina Clapp (RS Feva Saturday handicap series winner), as well as to George Chapman and Toby Wells for crewing the winning dinghy in the Juniors annual Dizzy Duck race.
