Vale. David MOATE

David passed away peacefully at home on July 15th 2019, much loved husband of Judy (dec), loving father of Garry and Lisa (both dec).

Now at peace with his family.

A gathering to remember David will be held at the Rossdale golf club, Aspendale on Tues July 30th 2019, 10:30am.

David was a former Commodore at MMYC and also involved at MSC for many many years. He was a terrific guy, a true gentleman and lover of the sea.

He was always very helpful to all members and used his very enquiring mind to sort out problems.

David will be missed by sailors and his bike riding mates.

So many fond memories

Jenny Holter. Dave was one of the early leaders at MMYC. He was part of the group that hand dug the moorings on the south wall. He was Commodore in 1965 and was given the honour of Honorary Life Membership. David was also involved in organising many training nights at the club. For the older Members he probably helped us all obtain our radio licences. He did many sail training days and helped many newer members by crewing for them to help teach them.  Dave's greatest racing days were on his Baroness "Last Escape". He had many close tussle with Max Scorer on Justelle, another Baroness. In later years most would know of Dave on Quiksilver. Dave was also responsible for the Junior Training at MSC and would have been partly involved in our own David's early training. He also very successfully raced his Sabre with MSC. David is someone that Mark and I were honoured to call friend. We wish Dave peace now as he sails into what lies beyond. A true gentleman and a true friend. He will be fondly remembered.
