CHAIRMAN: Des Thomson

Vice Chairman:

Secretary: Ian Threlfall

Ian almost grew up on a boat. As a young boy he would spend time around the Moreton Bay Boat Club while his father was doing radio duty and help pour the very first boat ramp at the Scarborough base. Ian was always found at the wheel of the family boats touring Moreton Bay, Hervey Bay and the Whitsundays.

Ian had his boat licence before his car licence and has owned many boats over the years including dinghys, runabouts, timber bay cruisers, keel yachts, sports cruisers and, most recently, a 12m Scimitar power catamaran .. which is very well known around the bay and places north to the Keppels.

Now, after 50 years on the water and a long-time member and Past Commodore of the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron, Ian is very interested in boating safety policy and has been a delegate on the Queensland Recreational Boating Council for many years. Most recently he has been invited to form part of the Blue Water Rescue Review Group advising the State Government on Marine Rescue matters.


Treasurer: Gary Bowden
