Port Curtis Sailing Club Trophy Night 2016
What better place to pull up your yacht and sail !
PCSC Club Manager Brien Dawson and the woman who makes things happen, wife Karen, ably supported by a great team of young and enthusiastic staff members, prepared the club to create a memorable Trophy Presentation night for 2016.
Steve Lewis once again did the honours as Master of Ceremonies, and it seemed to be a case of trophies and prizes spread throughout much of the membership;
if you turn up to sail regularly, the rewards will come!
Ken Watson was instrumental in creating many of the most highly collectible trophies of the night, though Ken's reward seems small in comparison...
fortunately it was just a threat...
The invited guests kept getting into the act,
Rick Niven leading the way with Christopher Mann in the first of many appearances
Georgia made many trips to the podium
followed by Jackson
The rest of the younger club members appeared
taking a haul away..
Will made an few appearances, while Christopher Mann took out the Hardy hat,
You have to sail Rick , if you want a trophy!!
