The CBBC Committee requires approval from Members to expend funds up to $25,000 for repairs to the Long Arm Jetty. The First Round of the Facilities Grant was unsuccessful. Round two is pending at the end of June 2021. Outcomes are uncertain and there is a requirement for certainty of finalising the jetty repairs.
CBBC AGM 2021 - Nominations for Committee
Nomination for Life Member - Dave Stanbridge
When CBBC was formed in the mid-seventies, it was engaged more with motor boat racing than to sailing and it wasn’t until about 1985, that newer members sought the inclusion of sail. Early members, Rob & Jane Hylton, and Jim and Marylou Davenport were instrumental in establishing an organised sailing wing to the activities of the Boat Club including the Rat Race Regatta and L & P Plate Racing series. Dave (Davo) Stanbridge joined the CBBC in the mid-eighties and was a regular participant in the early Rat Race Regattas and other Club races including the Tom Bentley Trophy, which was instituted in 1985 and held on Opening Day of the boating season. A personal anecdote that sums up Davo’s generosity in sharing his keen interest and expertise, gained over half a century of sailing, with other members. “In the early nineties, Keren and I bought Davo’s Farr 6 “Ayla”. Dave offered to sail with me on several occasions, generously donating hours of his time to assist me to master the boat and to improve my sailing generally, insisting that I go forward and sit on the pulpit to visualise the sail shapes from that angle and then to hold those images in my mind when I went back to the helm. This is a strategy that I’ve shared with several members when I have found myself in the role of teacher on someone else’s boat.” A further demonstration of his commitment and interest to sailing development resides in his own children and, more recently, his grandchildren. From the lofty perch of his former holiday flat behind the Club or from his property on the sharp bend in Island View Drive at the entrance to Duck’s Hospital, has observed and provided feedback to them as well as many other members of the Club. Davo has participated in, and assisted with the running of, club races over a number of years and he has drawn the respect and admiration of sailors from other clubs as a result of his successes in Lower Murray lakes sailing events. His skill and knowledge in sailing, particularly in Farr 6s was gleaned through years of sailing with former Farr Association President, and CBBC member, Frank Coggins, both locally and at Port Adelaide and Glenelg Sailing Clubs. Dave is a regular attendee at the monthly barbecues where, since his health declined, he continues his efforts in supporting Narelle, Darren, Justin and more recently, Lachie through his presence and thoughtful analysis of their performance. Davo’s contribution to this Club is reflective of the objectives of the CBBC as described in its Rules of Association: - OBJECTS AND PURPOSES 4.1. To encourage and promote recreational boating in all its forms amongst its members. 4.2. To promote recreational boating in the Lower Murray Lakes and Wetlands region. Davo has done both to a high degree. I take great pleasure in proposing Davo for the honour of Life Membership. Rob Jones
