September 2023 Newsletter

It’s been very quiet at the Boat Club over the winter months with the club having its winter break with only the inevitable boat maintenance being the main activity at the club.

The AGM was held in June with Michael Riky taking over the role of Commodore with Hal Olunger reverting to the position of Rear Commodore, taking over from Jenny Weller-Newton. Jenny has been a long term member of the club for over 14 years having previously served on the committee as well as a term as Commodore. She has also been heavily involved as the clubs representative in the Australian Sailing “She Sails” program promoting women in sailing. We welcome some new members to the committee - Andrew Ford, Kate Norton, Des Crossley and Darren Christie.

The new summer season starts in October with the official opening and sail past happening on Saturday 14th October.

Our 2023-2024 program is now available incorporating our regular events including the water safety days, the discover sailing days including she sails, start sailing 1 and 2 courses as well as some new events. Saturday morning sailing will also be returning, open to both adults and children interested in learning to sail.

Saturday afternoons will see the bar opening so come on down and enjoy a cold beverage and bar snacks while enjoying the great views from our deck and garden surrounds. All members and visitors are most welcome.


Sunset on the Deck

On Saturday afternoon 2nd September, the Loch Sport Boat Club in conjunction with local identity Daniel Ryan held a fundraising event at the Club “Sunset on the Deck”

Proceeds from the event will go towards purchasing air conditioning for our clubrooms, so they can be used to provide year round comfort for all events.

The event was absolutely fantastic with a great turnout and lots of fun was held by all. Neirbos Eats and the Naked Spud supplied food on the night, and Lyn Krejci was the lucky winner of our raffle and walked away with prizes to the value of over $2,500!

A big thank you goes out to all who contributed to and supported this great event.
