Royal Alfred Yacht Club AGM Hears Calls for Closer Co-operation With Other Dublin Bay Clubs

Royal Alfred Yacht Club AGM Hears Calls for Closer Co-operation With Other Dublin Bay Clubs

#rayc – There was a large turnout for this week's Royal Alfred Yacht Club (RAYC) agm with a number of interventions from the floor over a number of issues. Flag Officers and Honary Officers were elected as follows: Commodore Barry MacNeany; Vice Commodore Joe Carton; Treasurer Larry Power; Secretary Deborah Horan and Sailing Sec John Hayes. Committee Members are Brian Mathews, Brian Reddy, Chris Corrigan, Peter Beamish, Philip Dilworth and Irish ISAF International judge Gordon Davies. 

There was no candidate for the post of Rear Commodore.

Attendance included a number of RAYC stalwarts inlcuding current Chairman of Volvo Dun Laoghaire Regatta, Tim Goodbody. Historian Hal Sisk, Norman Long and Ailbe Millerick were also there.

The meeting closed with a call to co–operate more closely with other clubs to mutualise some aspects of operations – insurance was one suggestion. Another intervention reminded the members of the longstanding tradition of innovation by the RAYC. It would be by continuing this tradition that the 'Alfred' would continue to develop and differentiate itself from other clubs. Each club has a specific contribution to sailing in Dublin Bay, the meeting heard.
