Well over 200 guests crammed into the Harbour Room for a fantastic Trophy Presentation Night on Saturday 30 May.
Club Captain Tom Ely ably led the proceedings, with Commodore Janet Dean presenting most of the trophies. We were lucky again to have Councillor Serge Thomann from City of Port Phillip in attendance to present trophies to the Juniors.
It was also very pleasing to have representation from our kindred clubs RYCV, HBYC, RBYC and SYC. RYCV Commodore David Seaman delivered a delightful response to Janet's toast to kindred clubs.
RMYS also raised almost $5000 from the raffle and auction, with the money going towards the purchase of a new safety and race RIB. Thank you to all those who bought tickets and who bid on the auction, and congratulations to the winners:
1st Prize, 6 nights at the Sheration Denarau Villas in Fiji - Hugo Ottaway
2nd Prize, cocktail dress donated by Anthea Solopotias - Alexandra Doran (RYCV)
3rd Prize, fruit and veg box donated by Tommy Raft - Jan Hargreaves
RMYS Old Marina Bollards x 2 - Richard McGarvie & Greg Marino ($1000 each)
