The Restaurant was full, the food and service was excellent and all members and guests thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Commodore Bob Lowe outlined the many successes over the last two years before he passed the Burgee to the new Commodore Eifion Owen.
Eifion congratulated Bob on his very successful two-year tenure as CHPSC Commodore and thanked him for all his efforts as Flag Officer for the last six years and many more on the Club's Management Committee.
Eifion said 'I am honoured to take on the challenge of Club Commodore and I am looking forward to my term in office'.
Eifion thanked the social committee and the Plas Heli team for making the evening such a success.
Eifion was assisted in the presentation of the Club prizes and trophies to our club racing winners by former Commodore Gwyndaf Hughes and our new Rear Commodore Gerallt Williams.
For those who could not be present here is Eifion's speech:
CHPSC won the ISORA team prize again this year with great performances throughout the series by Mojito, Jackknife, Aquaplane and Sgrech.
The crews received the ISORA team trophy in the ISORA prize giving dinner in Dun Laoghaire a few weeks ago. Congratulations.
