Cadet AGM Sets The Ball Rolling For 2014

Last Sunday 8 December the younger members of the Gunfleet Sailing Club held their Cadet and Otter Annual General Meeting.  Cadet Officer Chris Williams welcomed those present and looked back over a very successful and full year for the 73 Gunfleet members under 18 years of age.  The programme focusing specifically on the Cadets and Otters had included sail training, race training, class racing for the Hobie 405’s, Topazes and Toppers, plus some cruises and fun and games days.  The Cadet Week had proved both popular and very successful and it was very pleasing to see so many of the Cadets taking part in, and closing the ranks on, the Club’s main races.  There then followed an election for positions on the Cadet Committee and, after much healthy competition for the posts, the following officers were elected:
Commodore:  Robert Gutteridge
Vice Commodore:  Conor Williams
Rear Commodore:  Daisy Swinbourne
Sailing Secretary:  Beth Ford
Social secretary:  Brogan Bates
Compound Officer:  Harry Swinbourne
The meeting concluded with an open discussion on possible ideas for 2014, both on and off the water, with no shortage of suggestions.
