Verdon Shield

Anne Verdon and Spike Verdon, with RO John Mitchell presenting the Verdon Shield to this years winners Greg and Laurie Williamson. There were tough conditions for Sunday’s racing with 18+ knots from the SE. The fleet consisted of 3 Flying Fifteens, a 505 and a Lightweight Sharpie.

Anne and husband Tom were strong supporters of the club for many years. Many Junior’s were brought through the club and went onto further their sailing. Tom had a reputation for being one to follow and enforce the sailing rules of the day.

Tom’s father, Reg (the namesake of the trophy) was a founding member of the Sandgate Yacht Club.

Spike represents the 3rd generation of the Verdon family at Sandgate YC which we are grateful and proud to share.
