On behalf of General Committee, it is with great pleasure to inform members that Geoff Brown was awarded Special Membership of Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club at the recent AGM.
Geoff has been a dedicated volunteer on our Race Management team since 2006 after relocating from Albany. His role on the team has seen Geoff involved in many disciplines of racing, from Club racing for dinghies and keelboats, to offshore racing and match racing.
Geoff is a National Race Officer and has been involved with many prestigious events over the years, including numerous Warren Jones Regattas, State, National and World Championships including the recent Dragon and WASZP World Championships held in 2019.
Geoff, has been our off-the-beach dinghy Race Officer since the 2011/12 season. Prior to this he was a regular mark layer for the dinghy fleets from 2006. Geoff’s experience and knowledge, as well as his willingness to help others has played an integral part in the successful mentoring and training of many volunteers over the years. His ongoing contribution and commitment to officiating at sailing regattas is to be commended. Geoff is well organised, professional and has tremendous respect from competitors, fellow volunteers and staff at RFBYC.
Congratulations Geoff on your Special Membership. Truly well deserved.
