Rob Noble with his family celebrating the club founded by his parents 40 years ago
The 40th anniversary party, the last yacht club event of the year 2021, took off with a bang!
76 guests attended, some dressed as pirates, others in Christmas wear, others in their party outfits and all ready for an evening of nostalgia, reminiscence, and comparative sailing stories.
Robbie and Neil Noble (sons of Clarrie and Doris Noble – founders of the yacht club) attended with their families.
Very excited feelings ran through the crowd and at six o’clock the Commodore Peter Shaw invited everyone to charge their glasses with bubbly and to contribute anecdotes, stories, and memories from 1981 onwards.
Our restaurant hosts Tony and Tanya came up trumps with the constant flow of food and the music provided by Gary and his vinyls stirred people to dance the night away.
Importantly, the main theme of the evening was the story of humble beginnings of the club to where we are today and a pride in belonging to this small club that has grown to host national events and keep sailing well in the forefront of life in Tin Can Bay, in Queensland, and in Australia.
