Breaking News


News received from our new President, Swannie, that the States are now locked in for TCYC in Rockingham on the weekend of 13/14 February. Put it in your diaries, please!

The club has developed a reputation for welcoming classes down and turning on tremendous, professional race series. They really know how to do it well and provide all the support and boats needed.

The romantics among you would have noted that it’s also the Valentine’s Day weekend, so consider bringing your girlfriend, boyfriend, wife, husband, dog, etc, etc!

Why are the States being held at Rockingham? Well, initially the association had planned to hold the States at Mounts Bay SC over the long weekend in March, but it became clear quite a few boats from both the city and Busselton were not going to be sailing that weekend. It's really important to make sure our fleet is strong and all clubs well represented.

The committee is also talking about having some kind of ‘show’ during the States, on the Saturday night. We’ll let you know more about that in time, but feedback very welcome. The committee is meeting monthly, with the next meeting on October 1st.
