The club is delighted to announce that Robert Lavender will be joining us as Bosun, with effect from 1st November. Many of you will have seen or interacted with Rob already this season in his role with Chichester Harbour Conservancy as seasonal patrol officer. In recent weeks he has been stationed on the Quay and has been even more visible to members.
As well as his Harbour patrol, maintenance and customer service experience, Rob is a dinghy and paddle-sport instructor with experience working at CYE Sailing Centre where he also maintained dinghies and grounds.
Rob's primary responsibilities will be to manage and oversee the use and maintenance of the on-the-water assets and equipment to support all watersports activities at the club.
In addition he will lead the patrol boat provision for racing. He will be a friendly and helpful presence for all our members. Please make him very welcome.
