Awards for DYC

by DYC

The annual Victorian Sailing Awards have been held at Sandringham Yacht Club.

For the first time, an award has been presented for the Inclusive Club of the Year.

The award was shared between Docklands Yacht Club and Sailability Shepparton. Both clubs run programs using Hansa dinghies which are an inclusive craft that allow people with disabilities to get on the water.

The awards were presented to DYC Rear Commodore Christine Elliot and Sailability Shepparton's President Roy Hill.

DYC Commodore Russell Phillips was also awarded Sailor of the Year with a Disability. This is the third time he has won this award.

The Shepparton sailors are well known to us at Docklands, having competed alongside us at regattas in the last couple of years. They will be the host of the 2018 Hansa Class Championships.

Congratulations to members and volunteers from both Clubs on your win.
