OUR CLUB STAFF
CLUB MANAGER - JULES McCOLL
I joined SYC on 5th September 2017 having been a sports teacher at 3 local primary schools. Having served in the Royal Corps of Signals for 13 years, I understand the importance of team work, commitment, quality of service and attention to detail. Since moving to the area, I have loved the water and my two children are very keen sailors and race most weekends. Although I don't sail I would often be Flag Officer or Timekeeper in the Watch House and just enjoyed being involved. I hope, as Club Manager, that I can increase the enthusiasm of members to use the club and really utilise this most amazing building and location. Above all I want people to enjoy being part of such an incredible sailing community.
SAILING COORDINATOR - JAYNE MORRIS
I felt the sail catch the wind and was hooked on a lifelong passion of Sailing. Team racing at School, fleet racing at University, racing in the Solent, working on a Tall Ship in NZ, and cruising down the West Country Coast, has all led me to the comradery of sailing in Salcombe! Richard and I and our three sons joined SYC when the boys started Cadets and I have been working here since 2010. I feel the special history of SYC makes it the all-inclusive club it is today. So many sailors over the years have risen to the challenge of changeable winds and tides – a glance at the names on our historic trophies remind us of great racing here. So many have volunteered on the Committees that govern our Club, they leave a continuing legacy of fine sailing. It is a particular joy enabling people to sail. The Cadets flourish and Ladies that Launch, a favourite of mine, now in its seventh year grows with laughter!
MEMBERSHIP SECRETARY - FIONA REW
I am married to Reg and have four teenagers! I first got involved with Salcombe Yacht Club when our eldest two started attending Saturday morning cadets 10 years ago. All four children are now competent sailors. I can't say the same for their parents! Having spent many Saturday afternoons watching our children race, my husband thought it would be a good idea if we had a go. We bought our first National 12 six years ago and ever since then have been trying to catch up with the back of the National 12 fleet! Although we have a lot to learn, we love being part of the sailing family here at SYC. Having taken accounts courses when my youngest child started school, in January 2012 I started working part-time at SYC in accounts. A few months later, I was also appointed as Membership Secretary.
EVENTS COORDINATOR - CLARE DOWDING
I have been working in the world of luxury yachting for the last decade. After seven years in the South of France managing yacht recruitment, I settled back in Salcombe. I have been part of the team since 2015 and thoroughly enjoy event management and being part of the sailing team here at the club. I also run my own company, Career Concierge which helps yacht crew with CV writing, coaching crew into their first position on board and recruit staff for both yachts and land based properties. http://www.career-concierge.co...
CHEF - JO VICKERS
I am thrilled to be back working at the Club - I really enjoyed cooking for the sailors and members last summer and I look forward to producing some fantastic meals.
BAR/FUNCTIONS MANAGER - SCOTT COOK
i have recently joined SYC having come from running many pubs and clubs in Plymouth City Centre. Most of my previous venues have been live music orientated as I was a singer for many years myself. However, I have always wanted to get involved with water sports so of course I jumped at the chance to join SYC when they invited me. Subsequently, I have found myself joining a cracking team of individuals and I look forward to the adventures ahead!
KITCHEN ASSISTANT - GEORGE BROADHURST PREECE
It's exciting to be a part of the Kitchen Staff after a year on Front of House. I look forward to another busy summer at the Yacht Club and in particular working for Jo who has a font of kitchen wisdom! This is in amongst my rehearsing for Shakespeare at the Inn Theatre where I am playing Macbeth.
