Bob Legg was the Commodore of the Yacht Club from 1955 until 1958 at a very important time in the Club’s history as we moved on from the Sharpie era . He was an outstanding sailor in 14 ft dinghies sailing with Bob Keeley, then in the Flying Dutchman and Finn Classes. In the Finn Class he narrowly missed Olympic selection for Australia in the 1956 Olympics.
Bob’s achievements as Commodore included:
-construction of the first “Retreiver”
-development of the sabot junior sailing program with the assistance of parents such as Max Rodd and Max Whitbourne.
-Building cold moulded Flying Fifteens and Top Hat class keelboats through his Mouldcraft business in Frankston.
-Lobbying for a reclaim to be developed at the pier.
Bob later moved to Queensland where he commenced a new business RL Yachts designing and building the fleet of trailer sailers bearing that name which still race actively as a fleet and hold National Championships annually.
In honour of Bob’s achievements at the Club the Foundation named one of the Pacer dinghies ‘Wasp’ the name used by Bob on his racing yachts.

Congratulations to Chloe Harper who came 3rd in the 420 Sail Sydney Regatta! Sophie Jackson had her first outing in the 470 with 5 of the top 10 in the world competing! The likes of Aussie gold medalist Matt Belcher who has been sailing the 470 for 20 years meant it was a huge learning experience and showed how far the gap is to the top at Olympic level.
Congratulations to Rhett Gowans who won another Australian Title last week, this time in an Aero 7, adding to his Laser Radial win a few years ago! The event was sailed in Port Stephens, Rhett said the sailing was fantastic in big sea breezes!
