Meet the team at FPSC

Commodore - Greg Jordan

As commodore of FPSC, Greg Jordan brings to this club a wealth of passion for the sport of sailboat racing and a commitment to teamwork. Greg has served the community most recently as the 2016-2017 Racing Liaison at Newport Yacht Club and was also a past commodore at HBCN. With nearly 40 years of boat ownership and racing experience, Greg enjoys the challenges of finding new ways to make the boats go faster and the many friendships around the lake that have grown through yacht racing.  While he has owned an Invitation, a Wayfarer and a Mirage, Greg’s current boat is a Laser 28 named Completely Wound Up. Greg’s goal for FPSC is to build up a fun and competitive racing program that is open to all levels of sailors.

Vice Commodore - Troy Farncombe

Growing up in the prairie of Southern Alberta, sailboat racing was the furthest thing from Troy’s mind.  Only after stints living on each Coast for school was he exposed to sailing.  Upon moving to Ontario in 2003, he soon obtained his first sailboat, Platypus, a Tanzer 22, moored at Fifty Point Conservation Area.  Crewing for others aboard their boats exposed Troy to racing, and whetted his appetite for speed.  In 2010, Joanna and Troy got married and upgraded the Tanzer to a Beneteau Figaro, Stigaro. Troy has served in varying capacities at Fifty Point Yacht Club, Newport Yacht Club and GHYRA. He is proud to serve as Vice Commodore at Fifty Point Sailing Club and is looking for new and exciting ideas to grow FPSC and expose sailboat racing to new people.

Marketing Director - Joanna Suan

If you need to put a name to all the typos and autocorrect errors that pop up on FPSC’s digital foot prints – feel free to point at FPSC’s Marketing Director, Joanna Suan. As the 2017-2018 Racing Liaison at Newport Yacht Club and ongoing FIASCO Regatta Chair, Joanna has been an active member of the sailing community as both crew and a volunteer across yacht club and interclub activities. As an extension of her love of water as a scuba diver, Joanna learned to sail in 2006 on a Colgate 26. Shortly thereafter she met a boy with a Tanzer 22 and the rest is history. Joanna hopes to inspire and encourage new sailors to get their feet wet in the sport of sailboat racing at FPSC.
