Cleveland Yacht Club

Yachts at CYC

The Cleveland Yacht Club welcomes yachts to their race program with the JAM races held on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month. The1st Sunday race is a race is a jib and main sail event commencing off the Cleveland Point with a course determined by the weather. The 3rd Sunday of the month allows an election to use a spinnaker with an adjusted handicap and usually is a run to Hope Banks.

The JAM races emanated from the inaugural Queensland Beneteau Cup held off Cleveland and supported by the Cleveland Yacht Club. The success of this event resulted in Dave Waller from the Beneteau’s and Ian Thomson of Qld Catalina’s obtaining support from local restaurant the Icon Bar where members sign on Sunday at 9am with racing starting on VYC Yardstick and personal handicaps determining individual start times.

The course is usually around Peel Island and has been a great success with fleets of yachts and cats competing for monthly prizes of bottles Champagne, red wine and a white wine for third place. The fleet has included Beneteau, Catalina, Dragon, Sonata, Hood, Cats and Tri’s; to name but a few, indeed all are welcome. The day ends with a presentation and good company at the Icon Bar from 4pm.
The race fees are $10 per yacht and the presentation at the Icon Bar is a great opportunity for the exchange of information and tall stories of what might have been.
So come along and enjoy a great day on the Bay.
