BY LAW AMENDMENTS

Live Aboard Regulations in FBYC By-Laws:

Members please note that GenCom has made amendments to sections 11 & 17 of the FBYC By-Laws, with effect from 1 April 2020. A copy of the By-Laws is available on the club notice board and at the club office.

11. Live-aboard Regulations
a. FBYC Members in Good Standing:
i. May stay aboard their own vessels for up to a week without approval.
ii. Who wish to move on board their own vessel for longer periods must seek approval from FBYC Management for live-aboard status. An application should be emailed to admin@fbyc.co.za or delivered to the Club Reception, prior to moving on board.
iii. Approval will only be granted where the applicant is in the process of preparing his/her vessel for departure and an approximate date of departure within twelve months must be provided upfront. This approval will not be unreasonably withheld.
iv. The General Committee, with good reason, has the right to decline a live-aboard application The Committee may also place a limit on the number of live-aboard vessels and reserves the right to limit the number of people living on board
v. The live-aboard rates structure is determined by the General Committee and the relevant rate will be charged from the first day aboard. Non-payment of live aboard fees will result in an additional admin fee being charged.
vi. Approval, where granted, will be subject to review every six months by FBYC Management and ratified by the Commodore. This review will include an update and progress report of the original departure date.
vii. If the departure date is not adhered to without good reason, the General Committee may escalate the rate being charged at the time (and which may further escalate at every review period), or the member may be requested to vacate the vessel.
viii. All vessels must be in possession of a safety certificate and relevant insurance, as per Sections 1 & 2 of the By-Laws. In addition, the mooring/marina is to be kept clear of all obstacles and vessels should be able to manoeuvre under own power at any given time. If the vessel does not comply with the above, the live-aboard status will be rescinded.
ix. See Section 17 of the By-Laws for the regulations pertaining to pets.

b. Local & International Visitors (Temporary Members):
i. May live aboard their vessel for up to three months. Thereafter, an application must be made to FBYC and STMC Management for approval, subject to the conditions listed above.

ENTERTAINMENT

A good time was had by all at the St Patrick's Potjie Competition on Sunday. Thanks to all the members who made pots and came to enjoy the afternoon. Jenny & the James's entertained us with their Irish folk music. Presentations of pots were stunning. All efforts are much appreciated, even the folk whose pots were not ready for tasting. Thank you to our judges Dan Pienaar, Oscar Walter and Heather Leslie, and MC John Leslie.

1st Prize: Jimmy & Yvonne

ROWING/ PADDLING

bbd0f8fb-21c3-4fea-b8eb-0ea849457427
Saturday’s annual Rowing Regatta was yet another success, well attended by our invitation sides from Alfred and Grassy Park rowing clubs as well as Lawhill Maritime Centre.

We are inspired by the phenomenal performances of our youth who through sheer diligence and passion continue to embrace this sport that enriches their lives at every level.

Timed races around the circuit went without incident at high rates, loads of leg power, and cheering on from the safety boat, town pier and the jetties.
Our Master’s mixed men and ladies crews raced in carefully selected handicap teams which brought out the best in every participant, with more fun than imagined!

Sincere thanks to our club organisers, every supporter, FBYC for facilitating this exciting event, and to Neptune’s Galley and staff for providing the braai lunch to a record number of 80 guests.
