Trophies galore at the 2018 Yachting NSW Awards

Squadron Members and staff took out five of the nine awards categories at the Yachting NSW event on Saturday 21 July at the Manly 16’ Skiff Sailing Club. 

Rupert Henry and Greg O’Shea (pictured above, 2nd left) have been awarded Male Sailor of the Year. They won the Melbourne-Osaka race in record time earlier this year. 

Rupert's son Otto Henry took Junior / Youth Sailor of the Year. He wasn't able to collect the award in person as he is at the Youth Worlds.

John Maclurcan won Volunteer of the Year, for his tireless work as Handicapper. 

Coach of the Year went to Mike Leigh for his success with our Youth Laser program. 

Locky Pryor was awarded Instructor of the Year for rapidly growing the Squadron's adult and junior Learn to Sail programs. 

Rear Commodore Christian Brook commented, 'It's a very big year for RSYS and I'm delighted that our elite sailors, dedicated volunteers and hard-working coaches have been acknowledged by the sailing community.'
