MEMBERS WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT... to create a BYC Members’ Benefit Scheme
Aim: to value add to our current membership card and provide our members with more benefits by creating a Members Benefit Scheme.
How does it work? On presentation of your BYC card and proof of identity you would be eligible for a discount at partnering businesses who join this scheme.
The Club is currently looking for businesses who would like to partner with us and is offering members who have their own business the opportunity to become involved in the scheme. Benefits for the participating businesses
BYC has over 900 members you could attract to your business by offering some type of discount on your products or services. This scheme would provide your business with the opportunity to raise its profile in the local community and increase your customer base.
Your business name would be promoted to BYC members.
Your business name, logo with hyperlink and your offer to members would be displayed on the Membership page of the BYC web site.
Participating businesses would also be given the opportunity to provide the Club with a half page or smaller advertisement to place in the BYC newsletter, at no cost, up to four times during the year.
If you would like to be involved in this scheme please contact Phil Jackman, General Manager of the Bellerive Yacht Club, by emailing email@example.com or phoning 6244 1353 as soon as possible.
COMMODORE'S QUIET CORNER
Marina - “Live Aboards” At a recent Board meeting concern was raised that the club current facilities to support “Live Aboard” members have fully reached the limit of their capacity. As a consequence the Board resolved to “Cap” the number effectively immediately. All enquiries are to be directed to Marine Manager.An important thank you……. May 21 to May 28 was National Volunteer Week which celebrates and acknowledges the generous contribution of our nation’s volunteers. The theme for this year is “Give a little. Change a lot.” It represents the many volunteers across Australia who make a profound impact in their chosen area just by giving a small amount of their time.National Volunteer Week is a wonderful time to give a very big thank you to the many volunteers who give a small amount of their time to the Bellerive Yacht Club. Be it being part of the “Wednesday Warriors”; a member of sailing staff; selling raffle tickets; being a member of the many committees; organising the footy tipping competition; patrol boat crews etc. Your contributions are highly valued and very much appreciated. You are an integral and important part of the Bellerive Yacht Club. Thank you all.Manny

SAILING SEASON 2017-18
HOBART JAGUAR LAND ROVER - WINTER SERIES 2018 - RACE 1 Classic winter series conditions for the first race of the Hobart Jaguar Land Rover Winter Series 2018. The “Jerry” was in full flight providing a chilly 8-15 knot Northerly breeze as was the usual down river current. The competition among the 24 entries in three divisions was “spirited” to say the least, with vigorously contested starts and crews working hard in the shifty conditions to maintain positions or move up the results sheet. These BYC winter series races are renowned for their close, good natured but extremely competitive racing, bring on Race 2 !!!! ….. Sunday 24th June 2018.

The Princess 5,“Heart and Soul” is an outstanding flybridge motor yacht. The presentation can only be described as faultless. The owner, with a strong boating history, is simply fastidious. Princess Motor Yachts represent the best in British yacht design and construction. Their functional design, the attention to detail, the craftsmanship, and performance is legendary. Welcome aboard. Note the ambiance of luxury and comfort. Step through the transom gate to the spacious cockpit (laid teak presents like new) with its comfortable lounge and hardtop. The triple fold doors effectively integrate cockpit and saloon. You will note the fine Cherrywood fit out and the light and all-around visibility. Upstairs (internal or cockpit stairs), the spacious flybridge offers lounge-style seating, a wet bar, and BBQ and can be closed off to the elements. The two helm stations are identically equipped with the full array of navigation and engine diagnostic instruments. It should be noted that with the aid of bow and stern thrusters coupled with a wireless remote controller the current owner docks her single-handed. “Heart and Soul” is ready for you to step aboard and experience cruising at its most luxurious.

Footie-tipping update:While it’s still close a new leader has emerged - obviously a Kangaroos supporter like his wily old man? But the peloton remains tight behind, with what appears an easy round 11 providing yet another challenge for the Tassie Hawks & their nervous supporters.
