Recreational Boating Person of Year

Wednesday, 25th November 2020

The Recreational Boating Person of the Year awarded at the AGM on Tuesday 24 November, went to a long-standing and wonderfully active SYC person, George Shaw. More broadly George has been very active in supporting our SYC charities and has been a backbone of the Melbourne-Osaka two handed races.
In Recreational Boating he has been a longstanding committee member and an active participant in many of their events – even if we have had to suffer his early morning trumpet playing. Additionally he always lends a hand, whether it be finding guest speakers, organising entertainment for their Christmas function, finding prizes for fund raising, taking on the microphone to facilitate events (because he’s the shy type), or even exhibiting his professional mastery of the two up game.
Congratulations George.
