From the Helm Dec 2019

As we wrap-up a year that has brought exciting change and new growth to our club, I’d like thank you on behalf of the GBYC Committee for your contribution, whether it be time, talent or moral support – and sometimes all three!  Here are some of the highlights of the year:

  • We’ve transformed the team and the club house – turning it into a place we can truly be proud of
  • We’ve welcomed more than 40 new members to the club (and have five more on the board for our January committee meeting)
  • We’ve hosted many fantastic and fun club social events
  • We have a great galley up and running and already creating a buzz
  • We have a positive, dedicated, active committee and 
  • We are committed to building on the solid base we have put into place this year.

We’ve have faced some really tough challenges in the past six months but 2020 offers a great opportunity to renew our commitment to GBYC and you our members.  We will continue to address and manage our portfolios with the same energy and enthusiasm we felt on the day we were appointed into our respective roles.

We thank you again for being a member of Gordon’s Bay Yacht Club.  We also wish you happy holidays, safe travels and a very healthy and prosperous new year. I look forward to seeing you at the club house and maybe even one of our great Wednesday braai evenings!

Yours in sailing
