From The Boardroom March 2022 Monthly Update

As the 2021-22 sailing season has drawn to a close, we can now look forward to some social cruising events as well as our forthcoming prize nights to celebrate the successes of the season.

The James Boag Navigation and Seamanship Cruise at the end of April is always a popular event, and we also look forward to celebrating the 50th edition of the Pear Tree Cruise on 29 May. Watch out for the Pear Tree merchandise!

At its March meeting the board approved a business case for the recruitment of a full-time sailing coach/trainer. This is an exciting opportunity to greatly enhance RYCT’s offerings to members and prospective members including junior and adult learn to sail programs, power boat licence and radio operator training.

It is pleasing to see that our functions and bar business is picking up again as we all become more comfortable about “living with Covid”.

Our financial year ends on 30 April, and as you approach the end of your financial year on 30 June, remember that you can make a tax-deductible donation to the club’s activities through the Australian Sports Foundation. Check out our projects on our webpage ( ask at the office for details.

A final word about safety compliance around the club. The speed limit for all vehicles (cars, bicycles and scooters) in the shared car park/pedestrian areas of the club is 10kph, and for all people in the slip yard, wearing hi-vis apparel is mandatory; No hi-vis, No entry, No exceptions!

See you on the water!
