2024 BIRTHDAY CRUISE to RYCV, Williamstown:

The 33nd RBYC Cruising Group Annual Birthday Cruise to the Royal Yacht Club of Victoria at Williamstown for lunch will take place on Sunday January 21st,2024

This annual event started in January 1991 when the newly formed Cruising Division of RBYC had their first outing, sailing to RYCV. We have continued the tradition ever since, with some years cruising by car across the Westgate Bridge when the weather has not been conducive to sailing. Boats will leave RBYC marina around 10am and return mid-afternoon. Bring a BYO everything BBQ lunch to cook on their barbecues, organise a picnic lunch or order off the menu at the RYCV bar.

Please advise Rob Hurrell ([email protected]) if you planning to attend so we have some idea of berthing requirements and you can be updated with any details. If you are boat-less and wish to attend, please contact Rob to see if there is space available on any of the boats heading over to RYCV.

GUEST SPEAKER DINNER – Friday Feb 16th, 2024
Our first Guest Speaker Dinner of 2024 will be held on Friday, February 16th, when the RBYC Cruising Group cruisers who spent much of 2023 sailing north to explore New Caledonia and Vanuatu before returning to Melbourne late in the year, will entertain us with tales of their adventures. This promises to be a great evening to kick off 2024 after the Christmas break. Stay tuned for further details
