2017 Quiet Little Drink Cocktail Party
The concept of the Quiet Little Drink Cocktail Party is for a Spring Party, to raise money for the YSA and to congratulate those who achieved “25 Hobarts” with the last race. Their names are now on the Honour Board and on the evening, each will be presented with a specially crafted Huon Pine plaque.
There are 6 to be so honoured, with a special first to a yachtswoman, Adrienne Cahalan. Along with her are: Michael Bellingham, Bruce Clark, Brad Kellett, Peter Sheldrick and Andrew Taylor. We hope their crews and friends will come along to congratulate them.
Along with the above segment in proceedings, we are particularly pleased to present plaques to those YSA alumni who sailed in their first Hobart. They will receive a bigger plaque after another 24 starts! Lauren Gallaway, Kat Stroinovsky, Ben Robinson and Charlie Gundy
The Quiet Little Drink Club sponsored one of the first YSA Elliotts in 1993. Since then has provided thousands of dollars in crew uniforms, travel, oilies and qualifying courses. Your attendance will help us to continue this most successful support.
