From The Boardroom June 2022 Monthly Update

In June the board met for a periodic review of the Club’s Strategic Plan. We reviewed our progress on key initiatives set last year and reset our goals for the next 12 months. When the Plan is updated a briefing will be offered to interested Members, to not only share the board’s views but also to invite Member feedback on the Plan.

General Manager Sue Ball and I met with Cruising Yacht Club of Tasmania Commodore Val Nichols during June, to discuss and reaffirm the MOU between RYCT and CYCT. Both parties are very happy with the arrangement and keen for it to continue.

Our Floating Dry Docks Project fundraiser has been very successful, with Members contributing over $33000 towards the project so far. Thank you so much to those who have donated. The fundraiser will remain open until the end of July. At its June meeting the board approved the purchase of the first four floating pontoons that we hope to have installed before the start of the 2022/23 sailing season.

Director nominations for the RYCT board have now closed, and as the number of nominations received does not exceed the number of vacancies there is no need for a vote to be held this year.

I encourage all members to attend the AGM on Wednesday 27 July at 6:00pm to receive the Club’s 141st Annual Report and confirm the new board.

It was with great sadness that we recently farewelled RYCT Life Member John Honeysett. John was a great contributor to our Club and sailing generally over many decades. He attended the June Veteran’s lunch and passed away peacefully the same afternoon. Vale John and our sincere condolences to your family and friends.

See you on the water!
