At their Committee Meeting the members of the ACA(UK) Committee presented John Morley with an award in recognition of the leadership, encouragement and development of Access sailing he has given in his role of Chairman of the Association from 1998 to 2001 and 2006 to 2008.
The award is a framed, composite photo of Access sailing. Richard Smallwood, on behalf of the whole membership thanked John for all his work and said" the photo shows many people enjoying Access sailing who are benefiting from the tremendous effort John has put into introducing Access sailing to the UK, establishing it as a UK class and guiding its development. We look forward to John’s involvement in Access sailing for many years to come.
John thanked the membership and said “ I have seen the Access class grow from the first boats we imported at Rutland Sailability and have been so impressed by the dedication of the clubs and in particular the enthusiasm of the many sailors who now sail these boats. I will treasure this memento.
