Warren Nethercotte Recognized By Sail Canada
Ripped from the headlines of Scuttlebutt Sailing News and Sail Canada (Original Sail Canada article). Our Canadian and Nova Friend Warren Nethercotte (KC 3786) has been recognized as a top Sail Canada Volunteer. Echoing Sail Canada’s write-up, Warren is a tireless traveler, relentless competitor and all around great guy off the ice. In addition to all the contributions mentioned by Sail Canada, he is a pivotal member of the NOVA Ice Boat Club and serves as IDNIYRA Canadian Vice Commodore. When we see Warren sailing in New England, you can be sure that he has driven at least 50% more miles than anyone on and off the ice. As we all know, dedication and miles traveled equals more ice time. Warren congratulations from the New England Ice Yacht Association and see you on the ice in six months time.
(June 10, 2016) – Warren is a tireless contributor to his club, the province of Nova Scotia, Sail Canada, and regattas around the world. A continuously active volunteer at St Margaret Sailing Club, he has been on the club’s Board of Directors for a number of years, only very recently stepping down.
Warren’s leadership has been evident with Sail Canada’s Training & certification Committee – Chair from 2010 – 2013, and continued as a contributing member through 2015.
A leader in the training and development of Sailing Judges, Warren was active with Sail Canada’s Judges Sub-committee for decades. As an International Judge, Warren holds a wealth of knowledge and experience from his many appointments on sailing juries around the world.
Warren finds some time for himself – he is an avid ice-boater in the winter, and enjoys sailing a Soling in the summers. His volunteering touches so many – you will still find him volunteering as a Judge at regattas up and down the Atlantic Seaboard and at local, provincial & national US and Canadian sailing championships!
The St Margaret Sailing Club is a Member Club with Sail Nova Scotia and Sail Canada. A registered CANSail Training Site, SMSC’s Sailing School delivers CANSail dinghy programming for youth and Keelboat training for adults. They run weekend & weeknight racing for their members. Each year SMSC hosts the famous Bay Wind Regatta, and is renowned for hosting class championships at all levels, and the Sail Canada’s Sail East & National Youth Championships.
