MEMBERS STATEMENT

‘BRIGHTON SOCCER CLUB.’

Wednesday, 1 May 2024.

Mr NEWBURY (Brighton) (10:33):

On 20 May 1924 Elwood Sailing Club was formed as the Elwood Sea Canoe Club.

In the late 1920s members started fitting sails to their canoes. The first sailing canoe inspired the Seahorse-class yacht, hence the genesis of the seahorse Club logo.

The Club recently launched a centenary book written by Barbara Lloyd. Congratulations to Commodore Ross Lloyd on his leadership.
