Lyme Regis Sailing Club held its AGM on Saturday and was attended by 50 members. Commodore Jerry Rook, elected for a third year, presented Past Commodore and longstanding club member David Beer with Honorary Life Membership, the biggest accolade the club can award.
David has been commodore seven times, seeing the club through the move to its present premises, chairing major events including the Larks Nationals this year, and representing the club around the world as a Laser sailor. He continues to offer expertise in several areas and work for the club and is well known to other harbour users. David will chair the Fireball European Championships for the club in August 2017.
The club continues to expand its youth training offer and has had a successful racing season.
