The most fun day of the Sailing Season is nearly here - Opening Day of the 135th Sailing Season

It's a very special day with events starting at 0915 serving Morning Tea for all members, volunteers and their guests.  Please come join us for the start of the day and stay for the rest of the day's activities... A summary of the times is below.   I try to  get as many volunteers together as possible to showcase our very special group and encourage other people to come join our team. 

We also need some people on a booth introducing volunteering to visitors to the club, so If you feel like sharing what you love about volunteering let me know  You don't have to stay all day, a half hour is brilliant.


0915 - Morning Tea  RQYS Members - The Cafe 
1010 - Call to Order
1020 - Opening Day Ceremony

The following Saturday the 7th of September I will be holding a meeting for all volunteers at 1030h in the RQYS Auditorium.  I will be introducing the new course formats for the season, and other fun plans we have for the volunteers.  I would also like to know what training you are interested in doing to make sure we are giving everyone a chance to increase their skills and achieve their goals!  You can also contact me directly to let me know what you would like to do. 

Please call me if you have any questions on 0438 930 990.

I look forward to seeing you all on Saturday!
