Shag Islet Cruising Yacht Club - Pittwater Rendezvous - POSTPONED

On the 1st of May, the club will be hosting a Sydney gathering of the Shag Islet Cruising Yacht Club followed by an Estuary cruise. Shag Islet Cruising Yacht Club Inc is a "NOT FOR PROFIT" incorporated club, the aim of which is to establish and maintain a Social Network for Cruising Yachts persons. All members of Shaggers is a  "Vice Commodore" representing an individual Nautical Location ie an Island, Islet, River, Bay, about which they have some knowledge so as to be able to provide advice or assistance to other "Vice Commodores" However, in SICYC, your social commitments could be your most demanding responsibility.
We were fortunate to be able to meet up with some of the Shaggers on the Pittwater to Dunk cruise and look forward to being able to repay the hospitality.
Please help make this event a success, even if you don’t’ want to come cruising you can still join us at the club on the Friday and at Bobbin Head on Sunday.

A 'Cruise Coordinator' flag

On every Club cruise you will be able to identify the Cruise Coordinator (Leader) boat as it will be flying the "L" flag.  Whether in a bay, 'down the creek' or on the open sea the "L"flag will be prominent.

  When attending all Club cruises please have your radio on and tuned to Ch16/77 so that you hear of any changes to cruise plans.  The Cruise Coordinator will use Ch77 'calling all Alfreds Yachts' .  If you have any doubts about a cruise going ahead please check with the Cruise Coordinator or with Reception.

Members are reminded to fly their Club burgee at all Club on water cruising events.  A burgee is available for purchase at Reception.
