Over 30 Crew Lunch


 


The annual lunch for Members who have enjoyed over 30 years of Membership will be held in the Roland Smith Ballroom on Friday, 15 March 2019 at 12:00 for 12:30 pm.


Our guest speaker for this year is Belinda Stowell.  Belinda migrated to Australia from Zimbabwe in 1991 and began a career in 470 sailing at the world championships in 1998.  At the 2000 Sydney Olympics Games Stowell and her partner Jenny Armstrong won gold. In doing so Stowell and Armstrong became the first Australian women to win a medal in competition at that level.  Stowell competed in the Athens Games in 2004 and the London Games in 2012. These performances were accompanied by two world championship wins 1995 and 2002 and a European championship in 2000, all in the 470 class.


Judged the Australian Female Sailor of the year in 2001 and 2002 Stowell has continued to support her sport through coaching aspiring sailors at the Western Australian Institute of Sport.  In 2017, Belinda and Jenny were inaugural inductees in the Australian Sailing Hall of Fame and in 2018 Belinda was inducted into the WA Hall of Champions.


The Over 30 Crew Lunch is an informal affair, creating an opportunity for Members to catch up with old friends and fellow crew Members.  Bring another Club member as your guest (30 years membership is not required for guests).


The lunch is always well attended and thoroughly enjoyed by all those present.
