2017 Committee

Sandra House

Club Secretary

Mel Jupp

Treasurer

I took up sailing in 2009 after moving to Worthing from London with my husband Nigel. It seemed obvious to us that to make new friends by the sea we should join the sailing club so came along to an open day.  30 mins on a Dart 16 got us hooked but we were advised that being "heavyweight" we should sail a Dart 18 so we we went off and bought one on eBay without even seeing it - not to be advised by the way!! Since then we have been encouraged and helped so much by the more experienced sailors at the club and now travel to events around the country - as much for the social side as the sailing! As treasurer I try to ensure that we keep costs down and income up so do my bit by propping up the bar at every opportunity!

Rob Garcka

Sailing Secretary

I started sailing when I was 7 back in the sixties. We were members of the Catamaran Yacht Club and an uncle had built us an Optimist on which my brother, sister and I taught ourselves how to sail. From there I started crewing on the catamarans at the Cat club to eventually, once I had started work at sixteen, buying my own Dart 15 to race. I then moved on to Dart 18 follwed by the F18 racing against the best cat sailors in the world.  I have raced offshore on a trimaran and competed in three Fastnet races. I also windsurf when its too windy for cat sailing.

I see my main role as Sailing Secretary is to organise club sailing programme and encourage people to improve their racing skills.

Patrick Palmer

Sailing Co-ordinator

I’ve been sailing since 1971 but had a gap of about 44 years in between, or so my current form would indicate.

I currently have a Dart 18 and a laser. I am more of a “…taking part is the main thing…” rather than a “…win at all costs…” sort of person.  I find myself relying on this philosophy quite  a lot.

Simon Palmer

Boat Park Manager

I learnt to sail in a mini-sail on holiday in Wales and since then have had the sailing bug and sailed whenever possible. Since I’ve joined Worthing Sailing Club I’ve found it a very friendly club with a fantastic membership, as a member of the committee with a young child I’m keen to help to run the club so that we can introduce more members to the joys of sailing and racing while also trying to improve my own standard of racing against some serious competition!

Darren Reeves

Bosun & Assisting Boat Park Manager

I joined the club in 2013 as I used to sail Lasers as a schoolboy and thought it would be great to get back into the sport after 25 years and also to get my two sons involved. I mistakenly thought sailing was just like riding a bicycle, once learned, never forgotten. Well after being rescued several times by the safety boat and other members of the club, it struck me how friendly this club is and how the more experienced sailors are happy to help you improve your skills. Now I have the chance to give something back by being on the committee.

Guy Lean

Kier Co-ordinator

My role is primarily looking after the club house and it's assets. responsible for maintaining a high level of quality service at the property site in order to ensure club members and guests are satisfied with their experience while visiting the establishment. I am your "go to person" if there are any faults or ideas you have to improve the infrastructure and maintenance of the building.
