Duty Roster

As always, we rely on members to share the load, and that means everybody doing their bit. Every sailing day we need and Officer of the Day, and assistance in the Canteen.

Members have been rostered on to these duties, please see the Sailing Calendar. If you are not available on your rostered day, the onus is on YOU to arrange a swap.

Canteen duty requires you to be available from 0900 till 1300.

Officer of the Day duty requires you to be available all day, open up at 0800, and close at 1800.

Membership Fees

Committee has agreed to keep membership fees the same as last year, with an increase for the maintenance fee of families of juniors using the club boats. We are currently updating our membership and fee paying process, SO PLEASE DONT PAY YET…. we will let you know when it is ready to go.

Rescue boat

Our new rescue boat is almost ready to take to the waters..for those of you who know these things, the boat is a Brig, centre console rescue boat. It measures 6.2 x 2.4 metres with hyperlong tubes and a 150 hp four-stroke outboard motor. Take a look below for the first sneak pic of it.
