RBYC Cruising Group
Formed in 1991, the group exists for those who are less interested in the thrill of competitive sailing, but more in the sport’s more relaxing and sociable side.
Regular get-togethers are enhoyed on the third Friday of the month. These meetings are well attended, with 50 to 60 people sharing a meal and listening to a speaker or engaging in many other activities, such as the annual Carols at Christmas followed by a BBQ, roving dinner parties in the marina and lunch and dinner cruises away from the Club.
Guest speakers cover a wide range of topics, including cruising destinations, voyages undertaken, boat maintenance and safety equipment. Sharing a meal beforehand gives everyone a chance to catch up with friends, meet other yachties and share ideas.
The group endeavours to organise a “Monthly on water” activity, usually the last weekend of the month, depending on the weather.
Cruising group members are kept in touch with what is going on through a monthly newsletter and regular emails.
New members are always welcome. For more details, please contact the RBYC Reception on (03) 9592 3092. Upon payment of a small fee, membership is open to anyone who is a member of a yacht club.
