“Fair winds” Terry

02 Oct 2009

“Fair winds” Terry Image

Ill health has forced the resignation of energetic Docklands Yacht Club Rear Commodore Terry O’Donnell.

Terry has been a driving force behind the fledgling club which operates out of Shed 2, North Wharf Rd, under the old control tower at the mouth of Victoria Harbour.

His enthusiastic submissions to this newspaper describing yachting activities at the little club would have us believe the club was on par with the America’s Cup.

In an email to club members, Terry said he deeply regretted the situation.  “I am currently struggling to maintain steady health at present.  My medicos have advised immediate retirement and total lifestyle change … That’s easy for them to say!” he said

Terry recently wrote a profile on himself:  “Shocker of a sailor, not good on knots, daredevil in a powerboat, master of club development, loves club marketing and advertising, membership recruitment and retention, grants and funds hunter, master pirate and plunderer of all good things, big on bullshit, my family doggy “Jazz” who loves me and my boat … which I haven’t used much!”

On behalf of the Docklands community, the Docklands News thanks Terry for his contribution and wishes him the best of health and, of course, “fair winds”.
