From The Boardroom March 2023 Monthly Update

Well, that’s pretty much a wrap for the 2022-23 sailing season with the last of the pennant races now completed. It was great to see such a large contingent on the last OTB sailing day as well; perhaps it’s the attraction of Strutt’s post-race BBQ’s!

Thanks to BYC for chairing the Combined Clubs Committee for season 2022-23, with the baton now changing to RYCT for season 2023-24.

So we now look forward to the various prize presentation events; Combined Clubs, RYCT and OTB, and of course not forgetting upcoming cruising events including the Navigation and Seamanship Cruise and Pear Tree Picnic.

At its March meeting the Board approved expenditure of up to $900k for the Entry Jetty and A Arm refurbishment project. The project will be funded through a combination of internal funds and additional borrowings. Construction will commence soon and is scheduled to be completed by the end of September 2023 at the latest.

To all our valued volunteers, I hope to see as many of you as possible on Thursday 13 April for our annual Thankyou function.

See you at the Club!
