Volunteer of the Year
It is with great pleasure that the Commodore, Michael Lockley annouced today that Martin Cross has been awarded the 2019-2020 Volunteer of the Year Award.
Martin’s hard work and dedication to the Australian Int 5.5m Class and a mission to bring the Int 5.5m World Championship to the RPAYC all came together in January 2020. For many years Martin has competed internationally in the Int 5.5m class and throughout this time he has been working towards bringing the World Championship to Australia. As the Int. 5.5m Class President when a southern hemisphere championship was on the cards he presented the RPAYC as the perfect host, steeped in class history and with a reputation for producing fantastic sailors and boats.
Martin then dedicated his time endlessly and energy to ensuring that the World Championship was one to remember for the club and all the competitors, families and volunteers. No detail was left to chance, shipping, and boat transport, accommodation, social events and of course the racing was planned meticulously.
Congratulations Martin from all of your fellow Members of RPAYC and the competitors who attened the 2020 International 5.5m World Championship on a superb performance.
