Recognition of Services to Sailing: Bernie Schmidt Plate 2017 – 2018
This year the Bernie Schmidt Plate for Recognition of Outstanding Service to Auckland Yachting
was awarded to Garth Briden for his many years of voluntary service with race management and assistance with sailing events. He is a face often seen at major regattas and is very much an integral part of the youth sailing across the country. He has always provided excellent service due to his communication skills and his keen mark laying ability, making for a great colleague to work alongside.
