It seems that spring is in the air and much hard work preparing boats is taking place in gardens and on the creek in anticipation of Easter activities on the water!
The Commissioning Cup on March 24th will see the RVYC fleet back on the water hopefully with not too many sore heads from the Fitting Out Supper the night before! The Sunday racing series starts in earnest on 7thApril with the Island Ales series and the Scows take to the water on 2ndMay for their Thursday Spring series.
The winter has kept the bar and galley open with a superb Wednesday night talk series and some fun quizzes and of course an excellent art exhibition by our Friday Art Group. Our prize giving in December and AGM in January were both well supported - congratulations to all prize winners and thank you to committee members and all volunteers who are supporting their club's activities.
The Cadet programme has had a winter of talks and theory and a very gentle first session afloat should be on April 12thwith over 55 youngsters signed up for the season. Watch out for some future Olympians! Adult sailing on a Wednesday night from 22ndMay will see cruisers, Squibs and dinghies all making the most of the club facilities .
Another date for the diary is 18th May for our RYA supported 'Push the Boat Out ' event from 12 noon until 4pm where the club will open its doors to introduce as many people as possible from the community to the delights of getting out on the water.
As for the social calendar, summer opening hours resume on April 1stand the new Club chef Darryll and his team have a host of events planned for the coming months.
We look forward to the Spring !
