Ian was asked what inspired him to sail as part of our volunteer day. 
This is his story;

By Ian Beeson
This photo is of my father Capt. Leslie Stuart Beeson. A Merchant Navy Capt. with the British India Company. Let the sea life to marry and settle down in Melville, WA. Where as a small boy saw dad build several boats, mostly small ones, one like a TS16 but a bit smaller. Another one like GP14 but a bit bigger. Also I believe he sailed a VJ in his younger days. So I went with him on the boats that he built.  I also sailed as crew on a Heron when I was at Junior Boarding School, with the House Master who was from England. He had built a Heron at school as he was the woodworking teacher there. As he and his wife had no children, and all of the other boys were farmer’s sons, and that my father as a Capt. in the Merchant Navy, I was asked to sail as crew which I did. We sailed out of Perth Dinghy Club at Matilda Bay. 
I left boarding school to go b ack home to Melville Senior High School. Dad signed me up to 1St Fremantle Sea Scouts, at the time our hall was at East Fremantle sailing Club, in Bicton. I learned to sail and do all the nautical stuff to enter into the Master Mariners Shield which was held once a year at Pelican Point Sea Scout Hall. It was in 1992 when I came to MBSC after I saw an advert asking to try Laser Sailing at the club. So I came and tried, the  next weekend was a come-try-sail promotion at the club for all sorts of craft. After that I came down regularly and sailed as fill-in crew on 16″skiffs, sharpies and finally settle as crew for Tasers, and the rest is history.

To inspire others is to lead by example and to have a passion and a commitment to the task. I would recommend to volunteers to ask themselves what you can do for your club, and not what your club can do for you. I have found that the more I do the more I get back in kind and I feel proud of our club.
