Barts Bash - Ever wanted to be a Guinness World Record Holder? Now is your chance

Centreboard Sailors, 

Ever wanted to be a Guinness World Record Holder?  Now is your chance!

Rather than our usual Centreboard Racing this Sunday, we will be doing something a little different.  The Clubs of Pittwater are uniting to be involved in the Biggest Sailing Event in the World, Barts Bash.

Launch of the new sailing season

It was a wet day for the 2014/15 Sailing Season Opening Day last Saturday at The Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club, but a bit of rain wasn't going to dampen the spirits of the over 500 members and guests who celebrated the day at their beloved club.

Have you ever wanted to sail in one of the purest, most competitive one-design classes?

Spring brings a new opportunity to sail on Etchells. If you're a competent keel boat sailor, come and crew on an Etchells in our spring races. Or, get a team together and ask to borrow "Pam" – “Pam” is an Etchells built by Pamcraft, and owned by the Pittwater Etchells Fleet. “Pam” is available to help sailors experience the fun of sailing Etchells (some conditions apply).

Opening Day 2014-2015, Event Program

The forecast for Saturday is partly cloudy with a few showers. Don't let the weather dampen your club spirit for the RPAYC 2014/15 Sailing Season Opening Day!!

A new category has just been announced for the boat with the 'Best Weather Inspired Costume/ Salute!'

Think, "Its Singing in the Rain", "Rain Drops Keep Falling on My Head" or one for the ladies' fleet, "It's Raining Men"! Get creative and have fun!!

The Honourable Bronwyn Bishop MP will be in attendance and will be firing the cannon to officially open the season. Proceedings start at 10.30am, bring your singing voice and join in the National Anthem!


The Governor-General, His Excellency General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC (Retd) today launched a national ballot for a world voyage in 2015 by the Sail Training Ship Young Endeavour.
