DBSC’s New Fearless Leader

Kirk Marcolina

On Friday 26 May 2017 a new era, for not only DBSC, but also for the worldwide Laser community, began when Andrew Cox (aka "troublemaker") was unanimously named Commodore.

Commodore Cox took little time to set out his ambitious agenda, promising sweeping changes to bring the club into the modern era. His biggest initiative is a major renovation of the clubhouse, of which the highlights include:

·      12 pokies in the disabled toilet

·      a full wet bar on the front deck

·      a DJ after club championships

·      a bridge between our front deck and the ferry wharf

·      a contract to make our front deck the launch point for the Island

To make his vision a reality, Commodore Cox has assembled a committee of like-minded individuals, namely:

Vice Commodore - Michael Osborne

Rear Commodore - Geoff Kirk

Secretary - Clare Alexander

Treasurer - Mark Crowhurst

Canteen Captain - Paul Adam

Yacht Representative - Jonathan Stone

Laser Representative - Ian Alexander

Social Secretary - Peter Collie

Property Officer - Gerry Donohoe (Jazzman)

Property Officer - Pat Levy (RIBs)

Handicapper - Darryl Lawrence

LTR Officer - Martin White

Newsletter Editor - Kirk Marcolina

CTO - Nick Pellow

Audit reviewer - Richard George

Some in the club compared the new direction to the efforts of other world leaders, saying, "Coxie is going to 'make DBSC great again'!”

Commodore Cox gave thanks to those who came before him, paying tribute to the leadership of Don Roach, Mark Bethwaite and Luke Parker.

Mark Bethwaite remarked, "I was initially concerned at the proposal to appoint a Radial sailor as Commodore, but I soon became more comfortable as I realised Andrew's plans are entirely aligned with the vision for the club we have all been working towards over the years."
