Appointment of Steve Rae as an Interim Director – March 6, 2013

Dear Members

Appointment of Steve Rae to NCYC’s Board as an Interim Director

I am pleased to announce that pursuant to NCYC’s Constitution and following a request by the Board, Steve Rae has accepted an interim directorship of NCYC and in doing so fills a casual vacancy on the Board resulting from the passing of Paul Gleeson.  Steve has indicated his willingness to stand for re-election at the next NCYC AGM which will be held later in the year.

Steve is a regular participant in NCYC yacht races skippering Marta Jean and recently represented NCYC in the CYCA’s Sydney Newcastle Race to a credible 1st place overall on PHS. Prior to retirement and permanent abode in Newcastle, Steve worked for a number of multinational manufacturing companies in Eastern Europe and Asia in mechanical engineering and management roles.

Steve will bring both a variety of valuable sailing, technical and business skills and experiences to the NCYC Board.

On behalf of Steve’s fellow Directors and NCYC members I welcome Steve to the NCYC Board.


Phil Arnall
