April 24 saw our first club night at APYC since February. Although the attendance was rather light, those who did come experienced a very informative and thought provoking presentation by Doug King, ex water policeman, current pilot on Port Phillip. Doug gives marine safety sessions for the recreational boating section of Transport Safety Victoria.
Doug took us through issues on life jackets and safety equipment requirements for recreational boating. His presentation was very well received as was the fact that having insisted on buying a ticket in the door raffle, his was the ticket drawn in the raffle. Our librarian, Alan Chinn set up some book tables with books for sale and many of these were quickly snapped up. All felt it was good to be back in the routine of club nights at Albert Park.
