One of the coun­try’s small­est yacht clubs – Manly Sail­ing Club – has wel­comed Rus­sell Coutts as its new Com­modore.

Coutts ad­dressed the club’s re­cent AGM and out­lined po­ten­tial ar­eas of fo­cus and devel­op­ment for the year ahead. He wants the club to en­cour­age more sailors and fam­i­lies to be­come in­volved and to also em­brace other wa­ter­sports. Ju­nior sail­ing is al­ready un­der­way, and there are plans to ex­pand this pro­gramme by de­vel­op­ing closer re­la­tion­ships with lo­cal schools. The club also plans to of­fer adult Learn-to-sail cour­ses and cre­ate a more reg­u­lar cal­en­dar of rac­ing and fun events in­volv­ing in a wider range of classes.

(L-R): Rus­sell Coutts, Vice-com­modore Harold Ben­nett and out-go­ing Com­modore, Sean Pater­son
