New Committee & Traveller Series for the Queensland Hobie Cat Association INC.

A changing of the guard has taken place for the Queensland Hobie Cat Association Inc., with the next generation of Hobie sailors taking the reigns for the upcoming season of sailing. Jess Hutchinson has stepped up as Treasurer, taking the place of Julie Keenan. Libby Kirby has jumped into the role as Secretary, taking over Helen Warneke’s position. Finally Andrew ‘Pelican’ Warneke has leaped into the role of President, taking over from Rob Branch. All three are 25years and under, and are aiming to build on the successes of the last committee.
