The LYME Regis Sailing Club has named its new Commodore David Meehan.

Mr Meehan was appointed at the club’s annual general meeting on Saturday, attended by more than 80 members, where Rob Wiscombe stepped down after two very successful years in the role.

David is a very experienced sailor, has a cruiser in port and another boat currently docked in Corsica. He was previously sailing (cruising) secretary at the club.

David said he was honored to take on the role, mindful of the long history and traditions of Lyme Regis Sailing Club, which celebrated its centenary last year, and was determined to carry it forward with its leaders and his committee, through the difficult times ahead.

Reports were given to members on sailing and youth activities during the year.

Club treasurer Andy Robinson presented the accounts, and a report on the OK 2023 World Championships to be hosted by the club next year was presented by chairman David Beer.

A spokesperson said: “There is a real buzz at the club as the members come together to organize world championships next year.

Fiona Common, who stepped down as membership secretary after 17 years, was among those thanked by outgoing Commodore Rob, along with his wife Margaret.

Former Commodore Jeremy Wallace presented Rob and Margaret with an engraved gift from the club.
