Weston Bay Yacht Club has elected a new commodore and president at their annual general meeting.
THE new general committee for Weston Bay Yacht Club was elected at their annual meeting.
Newly-elected Commodore, Mr Tony Hoskings said, “I want to build on what has already been started, encouraging more people to come and enjoy what we currently have to offer and focus a little more on improving the facilities we offer our boating fraternity.”
Rob Godbold was elected president. As the former Commodore, Rob drove the refurbishment project for the clubhouse, and was instrumental in securing £50,000 of funding from Sport England. Having secured a platform for the future of the club, he now wants to devote more time to his RNLI duties.
Alan Hollier stood down from the role of president after many years of tireless support for the club’s activities and the members wish him happy and stress free retirement at the club.
