It is my great pleasure to once again welcome you to another wonderful year of Membership with the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia. I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank you for your continued loyalty to your Club – what a year we’ve had!
The major refurbishment of our now world-class Clubhouse facilities was completed back in October, just in time for us to host the Invictus Games. We also had a Tasmanian entrant win the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race – a feat we hadn’t witnessed for nearly 40 years.
After a 25-year hiatus, the revived PONANT Sydney Noumea Yacht Race saw 19 crews take on the epic 1,064-nautical-mile challenge. We witnessed three new race records in the Audi Centre Sydney Blue Water Pointscore Series, as well as strong turn-outs once again for our Winter Series and Summer Twilight Series. Our Youth Sailing Academy teams also took home the prestigious Governor’s Cup, as well as the Club Marine NSW and Sharp Australian Youth Match Racing Championships.
Looking forward, we will continue to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of our Club, honouring this magnificent milestone with a jam-packed social and sailing calendar. We’re excited for the inaugural Commodore’s Ball on 1 June, as well as the Classic Yachts Regatta for historic Sydney Hobart boats held over the weekend of 7-8 December.
On behalf of my fellow Board Members and our Management Team, I thank you for your consideration to renew your Membership with this great Club and I look forward to celebrating our 75th year with you.
See you at the Club,
Commodore Paul Billingham
