Update from the General Manager - 2/06/2020

Dear Members,

I hope that you are all well.

Organised boating events are back this week! After our period of hibernation, we’re excited to kickstart activities back at RPAYC this Saturday with Race 1 of the Lion Island Series and our Cruisers heading to Bobbin Head for a long weekend cruise. Centreboard racing will recommence the following weekend with the Winter Series.

Dining is back! We look forward to welcoming you back into the Clubhouse from this Thursday. We are currently limiting dining to a maximum of 50 patrons at a time, split into two separate areas upstairs. This ‘soft opening’ will give us an opportunity to get members back into the Clubhouse following a shutdown of nearly 10 weeks. We will be open for lunch from this Thursday 4 June and, at this stage, lunch will be available Thursday-Sunday, dinner available on Friday night and breakfast on Saturday-Sunday. Bookings are essential, so please contact reception.

Our successful ‘Grab’n’Go’ take away service will continue to operate from Halyards 7 days a week from 9am to 4pm.

The welcome back to the Club and organised boating will look a little different for a while. Social distancing, hygiene and contact tracing requirements will be here for some time to come and have required us to put in various processes to be compliant, but more importantly for the protection of our members, guests and staff. We remind everyone that if you are feeling unwell please stay home and if you have any COVID-19 symptoms please go and get tested.

Please see our “RPAYC re-opening FAQ’s document here.

Club Projects. There are a number of projects about to commence at the Club. A new Boatyard fence is being installed, including a continuation of the pedestrian path to improve access to the Clubhouse. Our lower car park will be resurfaced and the traffic flow and boom gate access location will be changed to allow for easy access to the Clubhouse and to create an open and welcoming first impression of the Club.  Lastly, we will also be replacing the Clubhouse roof. It was hoped that these projects would be completed over the ‘lock-down’ period, however this is not the case due to restrictions being lifted much sooner than initially anticipated.

The AGM is scheduled to be held at 8pm, Tuesday 21 July. Nominations for Elected Officers open on Monday 8 June and Members wishing to stand for an elected role may collect a Nomination Form from reception or download it via the Members Portal on the RPAYC website. Nomination Forms must be returned before the closing time of midday on Monday, 22 June 2020. Voting times, if required, will be advised with the Notice of Meeting.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the many members who have renewed their RPAYC membership; your support of the Club is greatly appreciated.

I hope that my weekly messages over the past 3 months have been useful. As restrictions ease so too will the frequency of these messages, but please do not hesitate to contact the Club if you have any questions. Phone 9998 3700 and email management@rpayc.com.au

Please look after yourself and those around you.


Kind regards,


Craig Evans

General Manager
