With redevelopments afoot, the Quiet Little Drink Cocktail party 2017 was the last of its type held in the “old” clubhouse havinge run annually since 1994.

The event continued the tradition of 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 was be presented with a specially crafted Huon Pine plaque.

This year six were honoured, with a special first to a yachtswoman, Adrienne Cahalan.

Along with Adrienne were: Michael Bellingham, Bruce Clark, Brad Kellett, Peter Sheldrick and Andrew Taylor.

2017 also saw plaques presented to YSA alumni who sailed in their first Hobart: 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.
