Background – Sailing & PYC Membership
I have been a member of PYC since 2018. Since retiring in 2016, I have sailed over 20 days per year (except 2020). I am RYA Day Skipper (through PYC Training Team) and PYC Inshore Skipper. During lockdown I have passed the YachtMaster theory exam and I am now building my experience and sailing miles now we are back on the water. I planned the navigation from Ramsgate to Haslar to bring Quartette back home after her engine replacement.
I qualified as a Chartered Mechanical Engineer and have worked for ICI, Deloitte Consulting and Vodafone. At 30 years old, I decided to transition from Engineering Management to Information Technology Management. Whilst at Vodafone I built a significant Offshore Technology Unit in three Countries with 7000+ employees. My career has given me a lot of experience in administration, managing projects & services, and most important, collaboration across teams.
I have been the Rear Commodore Administration and I am willing to stand again unless someone else wants the job. I have also been Membership Secretary for 1 year, and Booking Officer for 2 years working closely with Club Members.
I would like to continue to set up some project and service work alongside other (non committee) volunteers who would like to contribute to the improving and running of the club. One example is the collaboration team focussed on recruitment of new members and marketing PYC.
Role and Responsibilities
Responsible for the efficient administration of the Club’s day-to-day operations.
