RYA Volunteer Award for Peter Smerdon

Posted by Judy Lambourne on 6 July 2017

For those of you don't know about what Peter has given to the sport and our club in particular

  • He was a founding member back in 2003

  • He served as our third Commodore and has been the club secretary since 2006

  • He is also secretary of the RYA Regional Volunteer Team

  • He represents HOEOCA on the BBCSCA which runs the clubhouse we use

  • He completed his Yacht Master Offshore practical in 2016 and has skippered many a boat for us as well as mentoring aspiring skippers. When at work he also took colleagues for sailing trips

  • And, in 2015, he was a key member of HOEOCA’s successful Fastnet crew

So, I am sure all will agree, the award is richly deserved.
