Yacht club, boat owner in court over ice cubes

It began as a minor spat between a boat owner and one of Sydney's most exclusive yacht clubs, over a couple of bags of ice cubes. But a year later, Nicholas Tsoukaris and the Royal Motor Yacht Club are facing off in an Australian Supreme Court.

The boater was expelled from the club last year after he allegedly stole two bags of ice from a vessel moored beside him at the marina.

But he claimed in court that his expulsion had been a ''denial of natural justice,” demanding that his club membership and his extremely valuable berth at the yacht club's Rose Bay marina be returned immediately.
