Notice to Members whose accounts are in arrears

In recent months the Finance Committee has noted that the number of member debtors is higher than historical levels. All our member debtors are regularly reminded of the trading terms of the club. Regrettably, little or no response is forthcoming to the reminders or, in some cases, promises to settle accounts in arrears remain unfulfilled.

At the December meeting of the Management Committee it has been resolved that any Members whose account is not current and has allowed their account to drift into 60 days or 90 days in arrears will not be able to make use of Club pen facilities and other amenities. This may mean that vessels in pens will be removed to Club moorings until all outstanding monies are paid and accounts are up to date. No fuel will be available to unfinancial members and “Credit Stopped” will appear on the fuel bowser. Only upon an account being up to date will fuel become available or vessels returned to their allocated pen.

The administration office is the only point that can take account payments and reverse the stop on credit to a members’ accounts or notify the Pens & Moorings chairman that a member has been reinstated to financial so he can approve a vessel to be returned to a pen. The office will be closed on public holidays and weekends. On normal business days over the Christmas and New Year period, the office will be open from 9.00am until 5.00pm.

SoPYC Management Committee

This year’s Sydney to Hobart Race sees a total of SEVEN WA entries as well as strong representation from SoPYC.

The boats to look out for on Boxing Day are:

43218 Abbott’s Vamp, a Corby 49 launched initially as Limit for Alan Brierty and chartered by Club member Chris Higham for the race. Principal helmsman will be Paul Eldrid and a number of Club members are included in the crew, including of course, sail maker Rees Howell who spearheads the youth campaign on Chris Higham’s Argo.

6836 Anger Management, a Salona 44 based in Esperance and sailed by Tim Stewart.

EF3601 Crush, a Jeanneau Sunfast 3600 sailed by David Davenport from East Fremantle Yacht Club.

F1701 Enterprise, a Farr 40 sailed by Anthony Kirke, who many members would remember sailed out of South of Perth in his Archambault 35 before buying the Farr 40 and moving to Fremantle Sailing Club. This will be the second successive year that the yacht has competed in the Great Race.

R39 Jaffa, a Runnalls 39 designed by Malcom Runnalls in the days when he ran his design office out of Fremantle. Still competing with his original Royal Perth Yacht Club number R39, skipper Terry Posma has recruited Past Commodore Guy Skinner to join him for the race.

CR1 Optimus Prime, a Marten 49 sailed by Past Commodore Trevor Taylor of the Cruising Yacht Club in Rockingham. Trevor is a vastly experienced sailor who has also done a full round the world race on a Clipper yacht and with son Daniel, competed successfully in the double handed Melbourne-Osaka race – not a bad effort for two guys on a 49 footer!

Chris Hind, the past Captain of our SoPYC Ocean Racing Section. Chris unfortunately arrived too late for the group photo, but he is sailing on the Tasmania based Peterson 41, Natelle Two. Laura Roper, the yacht’s owner, is one of the few female skippers in the race.

Decorated Perth yachtie Luke Parkinson joins the super maxi Scallywag, an Andy Dovell designed 100 footer.

Veteran navigator Kingsley Piesse rejoins Melbourne’s Bruce Taylor on Chutzpah. This will be Kingsley’s 37th Sydney to Hobart Race (That wasn’t a misprint – he’s completed 36 hobarts!)

Mark Loader will sail on Secret Men’s Business, a Murray 42 previously based in Bunbury and now owned by Sydney sailor David de Coster.

Those who were able to, attended an informal farewell function at Fremantle Sailing Club last Sunday afternoon (see photo attached).

Kind regards,

Bernie Kaaks
