Open Day – Sat 7 Oct – order of proceedings


Join us for the formal opening, sail past and social race. All members and families are welcome to join us for a free BBQ on the upper deck after the race.

Please ensure that you are assembled upstairs at 1pm for the official formalities.

Its a day when all members have an opportunity to dress up in fancy dress, decorate their vessels with flags and bunting and sail past the Commodore and dignitaries with a time honoured tradition of a review of the Fleet with the Jack Cox leading a sail past and salute to the Commodore. Once this celebration has ended a social sail will take place to blow out the cobwebs and get everyone ready and in good spirits for the coming race activities.
