CLUBMANSHIP AWARD MRS JULIA HORNSBY T he Club Person of the Year is elected by a select committee of one being the Commodore. So it is a very efficient committee, but one which is taken very seriously. The Clubmanship Trophy recognises the effort of Members who have made a significant contribution to the Club across a range of activities. This year the Commodore choose a member who has made a significant contribution across a multitude of areas in a very unassuming but not unnoticed way including, to name but a few: • A regular part of the race management team. • Member of the Archives committee including countless hours with the white gloves on and slaving over new computer systems. • A regular supporter of our Regattas including almost a week of full time work holed up in the Regatta Office completing Registrations and Administration duties for the Etchells Regatta. On top of those volunteer efforts, this member also got married on the front lawn to complete her dedication to the Club and one particular member. We are proud to announce that the 2016/17 Club Person of the Year is Julia Hornsby YAC H T SMA N 97
