South of Perth Yacht Club wins the 2019 Club of the Year Award

28 May 2019
South of Perth Yacht Club is announced as a winner of two awards at the Club Marine Marina of the Year awards.

“Club of the Year” and “Best Environmental Initiative by a Marina”.

David Harries and Jessica Oakley pictured with Andrew Chapman, President of the Marina Industries Association attended the MIA Marinas 2019 International Conference and Trade Exhibition and accepted the two Awards at the Awards Dinner on behalf of the Club.

2019 Club of the Year
As the recipient of the Best Environmental Initiative by a Marina Award SoPYC supports the Marina Industries Association Policy to eliminate single use plastics used in clubs and marinas around Australia by 2025. This is particularly pertinent for the hardstand and vessel maintenance and packaging that spares and equipment are wrapped in when purchased or delivered to members and suppliers. Elsewhere within the Club, the kitchens and bars are also confronted by plastic packaging. SoPYC has moved away from plastic straws in the last six months and will be looking at ways to eliminate single use plastics wherever possible.

Severe Wind Warning

Dear Members,

This coming Thursday 6th June 2019, 40 knot northerly winds are predicted at 9.30pm having built from 6pm. Monday 10th June has a strong wind forecast too. SoPYC is likely to experience severe wind conditions and we ask all boat owners to visit the club during the day to check on your vessel.
For boats in water pens please check that your mooring lines are adequate and secure. Boom covers, sail covers and biminis should be checked also.

For boats on the Western Hardstand, it is recommended that you tie your boat to the trailer and then secure your trailer with wheel chocks.

Keep the Galley Going!
Centreboard sailors, parents and supporters would know what a great and convenient service the Galley provides on any given Sunday racing day. Sadly though, it’s becoming a real strain for just one person to manage alone. Rather than have to shut up shop, let’s try and give a helping hand and keep the Galley going. Let me tell you that if the kids aren’t able to get their bag of mixed lollies, or worse still, I don’t me stretchy green Killer Pythons the consequences are not worth thinking about.
The Galley is scheduled to be open again this Sunday for the Applecross Cup Series. If you or know of someone else that could spare a couple of hands, please sign up as a volunteer – click here. No experience required. An experienced person will always be there to guide you.
Galley operating times: Open 0845 to 1330 Closed during racing Reopen 1530 to 1700
If you need further information, please contact the Galley Co-ordinator, Karen Lingard
Phone: 0422 805 385

This Sunday, racing resumes for Group 1 classes – Optimists, Lasers, 29ers, 420s & Moths/Waszps
If anyone is considering volunteering, we need a safety boat driver please. Please sign up if you can – click here.
