Rigged boats that are not competing in the Ice Breaker Series will be moved in to the RPAYC car park and or Boat Yard to free up rigging spaces on the lawn for competitors.

Showers and changerooms are located in the Jack Gale Centre and main clubhouse. Where possible, sailors in wet gear should only enter the main club house changerooms via the laneway between the club and the boatyard. Lockers are also available to be used, see Reception for a key.
