New Events Coordinator!


My first official task is to advise you that David Brunsdon has accepted the role as Sailing Events Coordinator for QRYA, picking up from Ian Ashe following his worthy service and retirement from QRYA management.

David will be well known to many of you from his regular attendance and participation in club, state and national sailing regattas.

Advertising for a Committee position to be filled was something new for the QRYA, but it worked!    The appeal to the broader RC sailing community for someone to step-up and give some time to the sport worked better than expected.  Within 24 hours the committee received a number of contacts interested in the Events Coordinator position.

The first one to apply was David who has travelled more than most of us 'clubies', having competed in the inaugural DF National Championships in Perth last year, the DF95 State Championship in Townsville and most of those held in the rest of the Queensland clubs.  Like many others here, he comes to this version of the sport after significant sailing experience right from his school days in dinghy's and keel boats.

The QRYA Committee is very pleased to make this announcement and we encourage all clubs to welcome David aboard and to work with him in planning sailing events around the state.
