AGM 2021


Due to Covid restrictions, the AGM was once again held at Balmain Sailing Club. A chance to reflect on the year and acknowledge the efforts of club members who have gone above and beyond. Time also for a change of guard with Nick Macdonald handing over the Captain's reigns to Jeremy Child and Renate Ijpma handing over Vice Captain to Freja Warner Van-Dijk. A huge thank you to Nick and Renate for the many hours they have devoted to the club over the past few years.
