Several time International Champion in Rhodes Bantam

Panmure Yacht & Boating Club extend an invitation to members of other clubs and those interested in sailing to attend this evening, which will provide an inspirational aspect for young sailors to learn from experienced sailors that through commitment and staying focused there’s ample opportunity to achieve personal goals.

At 1630 hrs PYBC’s 3 Elliott’s 5.9’s will have a sail off with each of the above skippering a boat with 2 young crew aboard. Other club boats will join in for what could be an interesting spectacle given that only Paul Scoffin has local knowledge of the river.

The formal part of the evening will commence at 1930 hours with Paul Scoffin, Pavel Ruzicka and Paul Hemker each sharing their individual experiences, how they each achieved their individual goals and their plans for the future.

Commodore
