The Royal Southern Yacht Club celebrates the 94th birthday of its oldest active member
Last Tuesday, 14th April, members, family and friends gathered at the Club to celebrate the birthday of Peter Garrod, a member for 44 years, and now an honorary member.
Mike Austin surprised Peter with a "This Is Your Life" description of his service as a pilot in the Air Transport Auxiliary. This gave Peter the opportunity to fly over 68 types of aircraft, but the Spitfire was his favourite and left him with a love of flying which has stayed with him to this day.

ICOYC Cruise 2015 - New Zealand
We passed North Head where we had watched the Louis Vuitton Cup in 2010, we then went out into the Rangitoto Channel. Rangitoto Island is coned shaped with its highest point at 259 metres.
In fact it erupted 800 years ago and it is the youngest of all the volcanoes located around Auckland. We left the aptly named Browns Island to starboard. It looked very scorched by the sun.
