Last Thursday RQYS Canaipa was the venue for the Dedication of the Greg Cavill Beacon ceremony which was attended by the Harbour Master Mr Jonathan Beatty, the Member for Redlands Ms Kim Richards, representatives from Marine Safety Queensland, members of the Cavill family, the Squadron’s Flag Officers and a number of Squadron members. Ms Richards presented Mr Richard Cavill, Greg’s younger son, with a memento commemorating the occasion (pictured with the beacon in the background). It was a very special day for the Cavill family and for the Squadron, the beacon being only the second dedicated in the past 10 years and with the location so close to RQYS Canaipa which Greg played a major role in obtaining for the Squadron.

So next time you are at RQYS Canaipa and you pass by the ‘Greg Cavill Beacon’ drink a toast to Greg’s memory, he’d enjoy that.
