Portraits from the Pens

by Elizabeth Johnston

Portraits in the Pens is a video series showcasing the members of the Royal Yacht Club of Victoria. As one of the oldest yacht clubs in Australia they have a lot of stories to share and we want you to hear them!

If you know anyone who could make a good contribution to the series (whether it be in front of or behind the camera) please let us know by emailing editor@rycv.asn.au.

We'd like to thank RYCV member Brad Collis for his hard work filming and producing this video, and also to Communications Committee Chair Elizabeth Johnston for her support.


Cath Beaufort has been an active sailor at the Royal Yacht Club of Victoria since she before she became a member in 1995 and is a strong advocate for encouraging more women to get involved in sailing. In this video Cath tells us how she started sailing and some of the highlights from her journey so far.
