Staffing Update

Our Sailing Administrator, Karis Castles has accepted a new opportunity outside of the Club, and will be finishing with us on Wednesday 9th February.

We wish Karis the best of luck in her new role and will update you once we have sourced a suitable replacement.

COVID19 Vaccination Mandate

As of Monday 31st January 2022, all members and visitors to the Club, aged 16 years and over, will be required to show proof of double vaccination against COVID19, or have a valid exemption certificate. This includes the Dinghy Clubhouse and patio area as they are both licensed areas.

We thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Summer Season Training Fee

There are still some sailors that are yet to pay the Summer Season Training Fee. This fee is $280.00 and for all sailors participating in any training from October 2021 to April 2022. This equates to $40/month. It is imperative that this fee is paid prior to the commencement of Summer Season training.

We would like to acknowledge those who have already paid their fee and thank them for their cooperation

Our Dinghy Committee is made up of volunteers who work tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure the Club’s Dinghy Section runs smoothly.

We have developed an Organisation Chart to ensure that our sailors and their parents are aware of who our committee members are, and what their roles entail.
