2018 Flag Officers
Commodore: Colette Bacon
Hi, I’m Colette and I will be your Commodore for the coming season. I started on the pond when I was six and sailing really has been my passion ever since (excuse the cliché). I love the spirit of the Otters and being a part of this community is one of THE best things I have ever been a part of. My Flag Officers and I are really excited for the coming year and I know that we are all going to have a really good season. I’m always around so please come and see me if you need any help or need to ask any questions.
Vice Commodore: Tom Rands
Hi I’m Tom and I’ll be your Vice Commodore this year. I’ve been sailing for eight years and am now sailing in the Laser/RS200 fleet. Due to the Otters, last year I was able to pass the RYA Dinghy Instructor course so I am really looking forward to being able to give something back and support this brilliant club as one of the Flag Officers. I’m grateful for this opportunity and I’m looking forward to 2018 and seeing you all every Saturday.
Rear Commodore: Izzie Corbett
Hi, I am Izzie and I am one of the Rear Commodores of the Otters. I have been sailing with the Otters 4 years now but honestly it feels like forever. I would really love to start giving back to the club as a Flag Officer by helping out in any way I can so if you ever need anything I will try my very hardest to help.
Rear Commodore: Sophie Dawson
Hi, my name is Sophie and I am one of the Rear Commodores for this coming season. My passion for sailing started on the pond with Phil Aspinall 8 years ago. I have sailed in many of the fleets available to the Otters, from Oppies, Cadets, RS Fevas , Topper sport and this year I will be sailing an RS200. I have sailed in the Cadet Nationals and last year I sailed in the RS Feva world championships in Medemblik. I was thrilled to be voted Rear Commodore and I can’t wait to help other Otters have as much fun as I am having!
Secretary: Scott Ellis
Hello, I’m Scott and this year will be my 11th year as an Otter - this year I will be their Secretary. I will also be sailing in an RS200 with fellow Flag Officer, Sophie Dawson. Have a good year!
