The first Portugese Picnic of 2014

By Peter J. McAdie, Rear Commodore Membership

Thank you to all those members who attended our first Portugese Picnic on Sunday 25th May.

With winter just around the corner it was truly a wonderful day weather wise with the temperature hovering around 25 degrees which was no doubt the reason for all the young Centreboard members in the water for a large part of the day whilst parents and other Club members enjoyed the afternoon in a most relaxed social atmosphere of a typical Aussie bar-b-q on the beach.

Club Closure - Monday 23 June - Power Outage Scheduled

Further works are scheduled at the RPAYC to replace the main electrical substation on Monday 23 June until approximately 5pm. These dates have been chosen to have a minimum impact on members, tenants, contractors and suppliers although it is understood there will be some inconvenience.

By Lisa Ratcliff/OCC
