Commodores Message


Thank you to all outgoing committee members and particularly to those who have signed up again to support and promote Twofold Bay Yacht Club. A special thanks to Rod Van Berkel as 2017-2019 Commodore and Aleks Konjevic as Treasurer for so ably guiding us in continuing to be solvent. To Robyn Malcolm whom is unstinting in her Commitment to the Club in so many areas beyond Club Secretary. John Balfour our remarkably composed handicapper continues as Vice Commodore. Thanks again to all.

Last Season was a successful racing season with great racing and generosity of spirit from all competitors.

Junior and after school sailing was again endlessly entertaining with several after school sailors going on to race in the keelboats in Sunday races.

The Regatta was down on competitors , but in 2020 we will be hosting the International Flying Dutchman Nationals as part of our annual Regatta which will help boost competitor numbers and is sure to be as much fun as the 2018 Regatta when we also had the Flying Dutchman Nationals ,again they have some Kiwis coming over.

We had a two days with the year 9/10 Students from Snowy Mountains Christian School. These Students are endlessly enthusiastic and even undaunted even when the lighting started coming down while we scuttled to shore.

This year should continue the enjoyable experience of being a member of Twofold Yacht Club and look forward as the Club continues to grow and give more of the community the opportunity to develop the life skills of Sailing in what is a truly remarkable venue in Twofold Bay.
