RMYC General Meeting October 13th 2011
The Commodore Mr Phil Gilmour gave a comprehensive report on the Club's many social activities since the AGM in March and on the very challenging but successful 2011 sailing season. He reviewed the various regatta and other races during the year with particular mention of the success once again of the Admiral's Cup race in conjunction with the Liverpool YC and Tranmere Alliance members. He expressed his appreciation for the stoicism of the members who manned the line at Beaumaris for the annual RMYC regatta in August, on a day of strong winds and relentless rain. He also acknowledged the disappointment felt by all members at a season which was frequently disrupted by unsuitable weather conditions leading to the necessary cancellation of racing.

The Commodore acknowledged the success of the very enjoyable visit made by RMYC members to the Strangford Lough YC at their kind invitation, a reciprocal occasion to that held at RMYC in 2010. 

The Commodore thanked the numerous Club members for their efforts on behalf of the Club, in particular the Vice and Rear Commodores, the Captain, the Hon. Secretary and Mr Cliff Renshaw for his continuing work on the Rock Ferry and Club re-development plans.

Following the resignation, after many years service, of Mr John Baragwanath as Cup-Bearer, the Commodore expressed his and the members' appreciation for his exceptional efforts in upholding the high traditions of this historic office. The members gave loud and enthusiastic approbation in support of the Commodore's words.

The  Captain, Mr Mike Blaylock, was re-elected for the ensuing year. The two Assistant Captains, Mr Graham Knight and Mr Alistair Smith, having been appointed by the General Committee will continue in office. The Captain thanked his two assistants and the many members who had assisted him with the various tasks essential to a successful sailing season.

RMYC  junior member Will Taylor - age 14 - has recently returned from the RS Tera Dinghy World Championships in Aabrenaa, Denmark where he won the Pro Fleet. The UK Coach, Jonathon Lewis, said "In the Pros,  Will Taylor gave a master class to the fleet on how to sail a boat quickly. He dominated the fleet with out-standing pace and consistency. With one race being won by 2 mins 45 secs, the fleet watched on in awe as, even with a couple of bad starts, he powered through them. Winning with a day ( two races ) to spare, he became GBR's first World Champion of the week."  


Will completed all 11 races with results in the top 3 making him the champion by 17 points after the hard chasing Italians faltered in the final stages of the Regatta. Will who sails at Alton Water in Suffolk, has been sailing the RS Tera dinghy for three years and is a member of the Class National Squad. He is occasionally to be found sailing with his grandfather, RMYC Member Chris Kay, in Meridian on the Menai Strait.
