Does this Hobie double 'plastic' kayak belong to you?

This is the time of the year when we do an audit of all the kayaks and surfskis on site at FBYC in preparation for our new financial year.This double is not on the club's Kayak Register. If it belongs to you, please could you give your details to Yvonne at the front office and we will make sure you are recorded as a kayak owner at FBYC. Unfortunately, if the kayak is not claimed, it will be removed from the racks permanently.

First Saturday of the Month paddle, 7th July, 10am on the water at the Fisherman's / Kayakers slipway

Everybody welcome, even if you don't get a chance to spend much time on the water! It is an opportunity to ask questions, get more comfortable on the water and meet other FBYC paddlers. Hopefully we will get a fantastic, calm, sunny day between the cold fronts soyou can really enjoy yourself!!
See you on the water!


REMINDER: 2018/2019 Membership Fees
19 Jun 2018
Dear Member
It is that time of the year when annual subscriptions become due and payable. The Club Constitution prescribes that all subscriptions shall fall due on 1st July and be paid by 1st August. This year there is likely to be a 6% increase applicable for the 2018/2019 membership year.
As an early bird concession, members electing to use electronic banking (Electronic Fund Transfer) as their means of payment will qualify for a 5% concession, which may only be deducted from the Club membership portion of their account. This concession is only applicable up to and including 22 July 2018.
We regret that alternative means of payment, including cheque, credit card, debit card and cash will not qualify for the 5% concession. The reason for this is that these payment options attract an additional and significant bank fee and considering our financial times, including the high CPI, we would not be able to accept a lower than inflation increase.
Most members are extremely co-operative regarding making payment prior to 1st August, but those few that fail to do so are reminded that, in terms of the Club Constitution, any subscriptions outstanding as at 1st October will result in the members concerned ceasing to be members of False Bay Yacht Club and being barred from entering the Club premises.
Finally, anyone wishing to resign in good standing between 1st July and 30th September 2017 may do so, but will be required to pay a pro rata portion of the 2018/2019 fees. Therefore, if you intend handing in your resignation, please do it this month to avoid any charges.
Yours sincerely
Anthony Wentworth

Members who are currently storing any small craft on the Z Marina / NSRI side of the club, to please remove their vessels ASAP. Kindly arrange for storage off the premises as we do not have adequate storage space available.

NSRI Station 10 will be renovating that area at the start of July, so we need to clear everything by 9 July.
