Merry Christmas Everyone

Hi everyone. A brief update:

  • The Christmas Party last Saturday was very enjoyable, with over 40 members and guests gathering at Bob and Linda’s for the barbecue and for the visit by Santa. Strangely, the weather was perfect. Seems it is only bad on scheduled sailing days. Thanks again to Bob and Linda for hosting and for the fantastic presentation they prepared for us.
  • Racing is now finished for 2019. The next race is February 1st Curlewis Bank Race.
  • There will be social sailing on Australia Day weekend, watching various parts of the Festival of Sails conducted by Royal Geelong Yacht Club. Social members, there will be opportunities for sailing and socialising for you so, if you want to be in it, contact me or any other Committee member.
  • Work on the new clubhouse continues. Attached are a few photos showing the concreting around the building and the ramp being completed. Doors, windows and railings are ordered. Best estimate of completion is January 2020. We are hoping for plumbing to be connected also. We will then have to sign the Licence agreement with Council before we can, jointly with Coast Guard, occupy the building. Following that, we can think fitting out the interior. Getting close!
  • Committee has decided to run the Jubilee Class State and National Titles for Ballarat Yacht Club in February. We will need a few more volunteers to help with that – specific requests will be made known in the next month or so.


Wishing all of you a wonderful Christmas. Next report will be in 2020.
