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 New South Wales Supreme Court.

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

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