From the Commodore

I offer our very best wishes for safe sailing to Flasheart owner and skipper Stephen Lee as he crews with Mark McRae, among others, competing in the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race from New Year's Day on the Spirit of Freya.


To read more about locals' involvement, you can read a recent Albany Advertiser article here.

I wish our club members and their families and friends the very best of Christmas wishes, and I hope to see you all for an exciting and successful new year.


Susette Evans, Commodore
