This Coming Week


  • Lauren’s 31st Birthday Celebration:  Tonight!  We will be hosting a twilight sail (weather/keen skippers permitting) – meeting @1700 on the pontoon.    Snacks & nibbles will be provided on the jetty after sail (approx 1830-1900).  We will then head to the boatshed for pizza & cake, but not before we polish off a few “warm-ups” on the boats (of course!)  Pizza will be a $5 contribution per person and there will be a vegetarian option.  All members welcome!  NB: Post-sail drinks and nibbles may be relocated to the boatshed due to inclement weather.
  • SAGS:  Will be held this Saturday and additional nominations are encouraged.  Click here to nominate, or see title link for more information and race rules.
  • Dinghy Sailing:  Series 2 commences Saturday at 8:30am.  All welcome.
  • WAGS:  This Wednesday.  Please see link below for Courses and Sailing Instructions.  Refer to club noticeboard or title link for results and handicaps.
  • Sailors with Disabilities:  Program continues Tuesday, 10th April and Thursday, 12th April.  Could all volunteers please be at the boatshed at 3:30pm, and all participants (volunteers & sailors) please let Gordo know if you are coming via text message.  Alternatively you may call Gordo on 0411 524 262 for further details, or register your interest online – click on link above.

General Notices


  • Trespass Notices:  Notices have been issued this week due to overcrowding on the dinghy tie-up section of the pontoon.  If you are a current member and received one of these notices yesterday, please attach (or make more visible from the pontoon) a current (2014-15) sticker.  Come and see me (Lisa) in the office if you do not have one.  Also please ensure your vehicles are displaying a current sticker – car park notices appearing soon!  Thanks in advance for your cooperation in this matter.
  • YQ Membership:  If you held this membership prior to renewing your CYC membership for 2014-15, please advise me (via email) of your membership expiry date so I can re-register you under their “My Club” System from that date onwards.  Thank you.
  • Upcoming Courses:  Expressions of interest are currently sought from any interested members for the following courses – Dinghy Instructor, Assistant Dinghy Instructor, Re-validation of your current qualification.  Please click on link for further details or to register interest.
