Honorary Membership of the Seabird Association awarded.

John has been part of the Seabird family for more years than he would care to say. His father, the highly respected Nibbs Wallace sailed Ruddy Duck for many years. John then took over the mantel, lovingly keeping Ruddy Duck afloat, not an easy task as we all know.

John has been part of the Seabird Association Committee representing SCYC for many years, and has calmly and quietly given us his great insight into sailing matters during many a lively debate.

John has also represented the Club in numerous Interstation Races and he continues to be a great source of inspiration for us all here in the Abersoch Seabird community, with his wonderful sense of humour and soft gentle manner.

The iconic red hull and red sails are synonymous with John and his beloved Ruddy duck. John fully deserves this honour for his lifetime of service to the Seabirds.

This award has only been given on a few occasions over the many years of the Association.

The Seabirds are a unique class of well loved, and admired, classic yachts that started racing in the 19th century, and are still racing. In 1924 the newly formed South Caernarvonshire YC offered races in June for Seabirds. The first race at SCYC was held on the 9th of June between 5 boats of the seabird class (four of them new). 1979 saw recognition by the Guinness Book of Yachting that the Seabird Half Rater is the oldest OD Class still racing in Britain. They have been sailing here ever since, adding to the Club’s rich history and strong racing tradition.

Well done John.
