Commodore Michael Connolly

A little bit about my history. I have a launch in the Sounds based in Havelock for 20 years and have been involved in the fishing industry all my working life. I have been a Skipper for 25 years on a range of boats from 15 to 70 metres and the project manager in the building of a number of freezer trawlers. I am now working as a consultant for the fishing industry, which allows me to spend more time at home.

My love is fishing and boating in the Sounds. I am passionate about the Sounds, providing safe moorings and looking after our fish stocks. 

I'm looking forward to working with the Committee to achieve some of the ongoing 'work' to do with providing additional moorings, Club projects and fostering relations with the Ports of Marlborough.

I'm certain 2015 will be be another fantastic year for our Club!
