John Dowd Treasurer
...
We are delighted that our nomination of John Dowd for the RYA's Lifetime Commitment to sailing award was approved and he was invited to a special presentation dinner with Princess Anne to receive his award..
Just to prove it here's the photo.The club's citation for John was:
We wish to nominate John Dowd for an RYA Community Award for his lifetime commitment to the development of youth sailing in the Yorkshire and Humberside region, as well as for his longstanding service on the Management Committees of Ulley Sailing Club; the National Schools Sailing Association and the RYA Yorkshire and Humberside Regional Committee.John has served on the USC Management Committee continuously for nigh on 20 years.His role as Rear Commodore allowed him to indulge his passion for real ale; as Vice Commodore he helped to found the club's junior section; and, as Commodore from 1996/98, he succeeded in expanding the membership of the club and putting it onto a sustainable financial footing - a position which he has subsequently helped to maintain as a very efficient club Treasurer.He also serves as Treasurer on the Management Committee for the RYA Yorkshire and Humberside Region.
As a teacher in Rotherham, John became active in both the National Schools Sailing Association and, in the mid 1980s, was instrumental in establishing the Yorkshire Schools Travellers series to provide a first step for young people in the region towards national competition.Olympian Paul Goodison, and RYA Junior coach Duncan Truswell, as well as John's own three children, were among the many hundreds of youngsters who subsequently cut their teeth in this series, experiencing venues ranging from open sea to sheltered inland lakes to windswept moorland reservoirs.
...
John remained the principal organiser for this series for a dozen or more years, achieving regular turnouts of 30 or more boats.Such was his enthusiasm that, for many years, participation in "The Travellers", as well as RYA and NSSA youth events, was considered virtually compulsory for every eligible youngster at Ulley!In recent years, the management of the series has been taken over by the Yorkshire and Humberside Youth Sailing Association, of which he remains an active member, and it continues to flourish.
After retirement, John continued to assist Rotherham school teams and regularly ferried them across the country to national regattas and team races.He currently edits the NSSA's 'School Sailing Matters' and, building on his previous experience of organising the Redcar regatta, took the lead in bringing NSSA sailing back to the north east coast in 2004, this time hosted by the Royal Yorkshire Yacht Club.
John continues to sail quite regularly in club competitions and is a qualified sailing and power boat instructor.It would be particularly appropriate to honour his lifetime commitment to sailing in this his 65 th birthday year.

John Dowd - RYA Lifetime Achievement Award 2005
John & family first joined the club in 1983, due to his Son Christopher crewing for George Moore in an Enterprise in the early eighties, but John was soon pressed into service on the management committee by Roy Gunstone, who was Vice Commodore at the time.

John took on the role of Co-ordinator for the Yorkshire Schools Traveller Series and throughout the nineties he built up the series to a point where its standing was such that the winners enjoyed recognition far beyond Yorkshire. One of our Ulley sailors won the series three times in the nineties and went on to find International recognition - no prizes for guessing who!
In 2005 John received an RYA Community Award in recognition of his services to Ulley SC and to Youth Sailing in the Yorkshire region over the previous twenty years. The photograph shows John being presented with his medal and certificate by the HRH Princess Anne, President of the RYA. The Management Committee's nomination for this award was as follows:

John is still active in the Yorkshire & Humberside Youth Sailing Association and as Treasurer of the National Schools Sailing Association.
