85th Anniversary Regatta

Our annual regatta day is being held on Saturday 10th August. The final preparations are underway and we are looking forward to welcoming members and visitors to a fantastic day, both on and off the water.

The first gun is scheduled for 2pm, the full set of sailing instructions can be found by clicking here.

Off the water we have an afternoon tea upstairs in the clubhouse from 3pm. This will be followed by our famous regatta tea starting at approximately 4pm. Thanks to Hillside Homebakes who have sponsored the regatta tea for our anniversary.

In the evening we will have ‘Annie’s BBQ’, including a cheeseboard kindly sponsored by Whiterock Moorings and live music from John Lynas from 8pm till late. We would like to invite all members, visitors and guests to stay for the evening celebrations.

There will be a ferry service throughout the day, simply ask for this at the bar.

Please do not forget that we have our SLYC Crew Finder on Facebook, please use this service if you are a willing crew member or a boat owner looking for such. This can be found here.
