Our CBYA Secretary, Ann Masson, has advised that she is planning to move to Valencia in the near future, and that she would like to step down as soon as possible, but certainly no later than the 2020 AGM, by which time she would have completed FIVE (5) years as our best-ever Secretary!
So we need to find a suitable replacement who:-
Is a permanent resident.
Has good spoken and written English.
Is well organised.
Is computer literate.
Has a good attention to detail.
Can speak some Spanish (not essential).
It is not an onerous task and the position can be filled by either a male of female CBYA member.
If anyone is interested in helping to further develop the CBYA by taking on this role, please send me an e-mail at email@example.com
We are sad to advise that Peter Hooker has passed away.
Tim Fawle provided the following words in his memory…
He was an enthusiastic member during the earlier days of the CBYA, and was an active participant with the Jubilee Sailing Trust , where he did voluntary work as a carpenter on the Tenacious, constructing some fine woodwork in the dining room.
We are very sad to announce that one of our members, Gaby Ferenczy, lost his brave, short battle with cancer last week.
Gaby was a relatively new member of the CBYA, having joined in September 2017, after the death of his wife, Margaret. However, he was not new to sailing having in the past owned a MacGregor 26 (S/Y Magabee) moored at Dénia.
He was a stalwart supporter of CBYA day cruiser charters, attended many social events in Jávea, and joined us on the first CBYA Charter Cruise holiday in Croatia, where he proved to be excellent company. He had signed up for this year’s trip as well.
He was a great example of “living life to the full” throughout his 85 years – his birthday was a few weeks ago – and was active in many associations.
Gaby has three sons who are making funeral arrangements to enable other family members and friends to attend. The funeral will take place at 1200 hours on Friday 19th July at the Jávea Crematorium, and will be followed by tapas & drinks at Le Gourmand Restaurant.
We will miss him.
