TUESDAY NIGHT - Cruising Committee talk on Japanese midget sub attack on Sydney Harbour
On July 4 at 6.30pm in the Freya room we will be holding an information on the Japanese Submarine attack on Sydney Harbour. You may ask how does this historical event involve the CYCA?
Well on the night this attack took place a number those involved in the harbour defence at the time later went on to became some of the foundation members of the CYCA, they were Peter Luke (Wayfarer) and Charlie Cooper (Asgard); and that it was the ketch 'Lauriana' that was on duty at the Anti Submarine boom that night. ‘Lauriana' first spotted the submarines after which, when the depth charges were dropped in an attempt to destroy them, she was reportedly lifted out of the water by the force of the explosions.
This will be a night full of information and will be of particular interest to anyone who is familiar with the harbour as when they hear the stories unfold they will recognise where the events happened.
It's a free event so please bring your crew and friends along as the Bistro and bars will be open, all we ask is that you let us know you are coming by registering here.
SPIRIT OF CRUISING - Tuesday 1 August 2017
CYCA Rani Room — 6.30pm
Guest Speakers; Evan Hodge and Kelly Clark of Nashira, a Bavaria Ocean 40, share their passion, preparation and anxiety as they prepared for their first cruising adventure to Tasmania.
Very new to yachting Evan, who had experience sailing dinghies and skiffs as a young boy, faced new challenges sailing as an 'above knee' amputee and Kelly having never sailed, embarked on a 6 day sailing course which ultimately changed the trajectory of their lives. They bought Nashira 3 months later.
Two and a half years after buying the boat they headed off on a 10 week adventure to Tasmania, crossing Bass Strait, sailing down the East Coast, then down and around to Port Davey and Bathurst Harbour.
They will share stories and photos of their trip including the preparation around safety, communications, victualing, route and weather planning and the anxiety of the unknown.
$30.00 for Spirit of Cruising dinner and meeting in the Rani Room.
Bookings close – Monday 31 July, 12:00pm
