In October 2007, in front of a large contingent of Wednesday Twilight sailors, CYCA Member and Director of Standard Communications, Anthony Dunn christened one of the Club’s ten Elliott 6s as ‘Garmin/GME’, welcoming a new partnership between the CYCA and GME which now spans more than 13 years. Over this time the relationship has continued to strengthen, with all the CYCA’s on-water support vessels, featuring GME communication equipment.
Since 1959, GME has been an Australian owned family company, now located in Sydney’s North West. GME has grown over the years, now running a state-of-the-art operation with over 200 staff and divisions stretching around the world. In addition to being the only Australian manufacturer of UHF CB radios, GME also engineers and manufactures a range of marine equipment from Emergency Beacons to VHF radios and antennas to ensure the safety of ocean adventurers.
These unique attributes result in more Australian rescues starting with GME beacons than with any other brand.

We continue to thank GME for their ongoing commitment to the CYCA and in particular the Youth Sailing Academy.
