On the Day

Cars and trailers may enter the lower carpark to unload, simply buzz at the boomgate for Reception. Following this, all trailers must then be taken over and left in the Crystal bay carpark.
A number of boats will rig in designated areas in the lower carpark. Please ensure the concrete area on the lawn is kept free for these people/boats to access the launching ramp. 
Due to the restricted space on the lawn, it is essential that all boats are taken home on Sunday after racing. Any boat left overnight without a storage agreement will be impounded by the club and a temporary storage fee will be charged on collection.
Rigged boats that are not competing in the Ice Breaker Series will be moved into the RPAYC car park and or Boat Yard to free up rigging spaces on the lawn for competitors.


Showers and change rooms are located in the Jack Gale Centre and main clubhouse. Where possible, sailors in wet gear should only enter the main clubhouse changerooms via the laneway between the club and the boatyard. Lockers are also available to be used, see Reception for a key.
Sign on and off will be located at the Jack Gale Centre.
The regatta briefing will be on the centreboard lawn.
Halyards Bistro is open from 0800hrs for Breakfast, lunch and afternoon snacks. Post racing BBQ will be hosted in the Halyards Annex. Additional tickets for lunch can be purchased from the Bistro for the BBQ.


Like all Club racing events, the Ice Breaker Series is dependant on the genrosity of volunteers. If you are available the community would greatly appreciate your help, please note your expression of interest by following this link.
