Shelley Sailing club – junior Sailing Promotion this saturday morning 5th oct 9.00am until midday

We are holding a promotion of  Shelley Sailing club opposite Rossmoyne Shopping Centre this Saturday morning. Also on Saturday morning, Shelley Sailing club will receive and unfurl a new sail for the club Mudlark “Marty”  which has been generoulsy donated by Christine Flux. Come down and say hello

“MARTY”

Martin Flux was a young enthusiastic member and Rear Commodore of the Shelley Sailing Club whose cheerful assistance and encouragement to junior sailors has been sadly missed since the tragic accident that took his life in 1988. Martin’s family have since made several generous donations to the Shelley Sailing Club, including the new sail you see here today, leading to the establishment of the Martin Flux Fund to support junior sailing and to remind members of the valuable contribution made by this popular young man. Christine Flux, his Mum, unfurled the new sail this morning. Over the past years the fund has been used initially to purchase the fibreglass Mudlark “Marty”, several second hand Mudlarks for loan/resale to members and an inflatable dinghy to assist in the coaching of the junior fleet
