David Knight

I have kept my boat at Tollesbury for 17 years, and have been active within the club for most of  that time. I sail with my partner Yelena on my Moody 336 – “Dionysus”.

As Commodore I want to get more members involved whether they have smaller or larger boats,  sail or power. Working with the committee we are planning all types of sailing and social events, to try to maximise the fun we all get from using our boats.

Jose ZalabardoI started sailing in 2003. In the next six years I sailed over 6000 miles in twenty different boats. In 2009 I bought my first yacht, Scallywag, a Dehler 31, and brought it to Tollesbury.

I enjoy club cruises and races, although I never do very well in the races! I’m still getting to know our wonderful cruising grounds.

Treasurer

Tony Westbrook - 07785 705585

Tony WestbrookI sail Wave Dancer a Moody 346 which I own jointly with David Prentis - and we have had a boat at Tollesbury since 1990.

I started off sailing dinghies, and then crewed on other peoples yachts on the Solent, and cruised in Greece and the West Indies, before deciding that the East Coast was the best… if only the weather was better!

Mandy JarvisI have sailed with my husband, Tony, on Amelia (Leisure 27) for one full season.

My sailing began in 1989 as crew on Sigma 38's in the Channel, then on a 43 foot Smack in the Blackwater. I have completed two RYA courses. I really enjoy the social aspect of our club and look forward to our next exciting season.
