David Skinner, SYC Admiral

Our inspirational new Admiral

We have a new Admiral – the inspirational eighty-five years young David Skinner.

David has been an active member of the Club since 1971, when he joined with his young family.  He was our Commodore in 1994 and, until recently, was still racing in his 42-foot ‘retirement boat’ with a crew of up to nine people.
