David Binks - The Man Behind A Boating Tradition                                                                                   
 
 
David Binks is a well-known and highly respected Rotarian and has been a member of the Rotary Club of Glenelg for over 50 years.  During this time, David has been Club President on three occasions and served on numerous District management committees, giving invaluable advice on Youth Exchange Protection issues.
 
David's career as a boatbuilder has also been highly distinguished.  His racing yachts have won many National and International Championships.  David was a pioneer in the introduction of fibreglass in boatbuilding and designed and built many world-class cruising yachts.  David has received many awards from the boating industry, highlighted by a Medal of the Order of Australia in 2013 for his services to sailing.
 
Recently, an enthralling biography of David's life, Casting Off Tradition, has been published by Wakefield Press.  The book is on sale for $40.  Part proceeds from book royalties will help fund youth development voyages aboard the majestic tall ship One and All.

Warm Invitation to the Cold Plunge

 
Will you take the “Plunge” and help raise awareness and funds to support the homeless in our community? Get sponsors and put on your boardies or bikinis and together we will plunge into the icy cold water at Glenelg Beach on Sunday August 20 at 11:00 am.
 
It will be a fun and an unforgettable experience, and with more than 5,900 people homeless in South Australia, it will certainly be for a great cause.  You can fly solo or register your team!
 
The Cold Plunge is an annual event hosted by the Rotary Club of Glenelg with funds this year being donated to Mary’s Kitchen, Hutt Street Centre and Catherine House.  We are calling all Rotarian’s to support this event by registering and raising sponsorship or donating at http://coldplunge.com.au/
