New Year's Eve and Coffs Race Reminders

New Year's Eve 

The Club would like to advise that there are some remaining berths and moorings available for New Years Eve. If you are interested in entertaining friends and enjoying the spectacular Pittwater Fireworks on your boat please email;waterfront@rpayc.com.au. Halyards will open at 8am allowing you and your guests to enjoy a tasty breakfast.


The Club is proud to contribute financially to the Pittwater fireworks for our Members entertainment, and we would like to remind all Members going out on their boats to watch the fireworks that the Council has issued a safe exclusion zone as indicated by the image below. 




New Year's Eve Party 

Bookings for the Club’s New Year’s Eve party have now been closed and we would like to remind members and guests that allocated wristbands are to be worn for security purposes and must be collected at the Club before the night. Members can collect wristbands for their guests.

As the bookings for the New Year’s Eve party have reached capacity we advise members who are not attending the Party that you are able to purchase drinks from Halyard’s.

Security will not allow anyone into the Club if they are not wearing a wristband. If guests do not have a wristband they will need to call a member from the boom gate of whom will need to come to the gate to collect their guest.
