Friendly Reminder - Sunbeam Working Bee



Sunbeam is a piece of WA Maritime and Club History and it was gifted to the Club some years ago by a long standing Member, Bruce Prance. 

Unfortunately she has deteriorated to a point where she will no longer be seaworthy unless considerable time and effort is spent on her. 

It was decided at the last Committee meeting that a last-ditch effort is to be organised to try and protect her from further deterioration by way of a working bee to sand, fill and paint her hull and replace the deck.

This project is being funded by some of our Members of the Committee, but we need your help with manpower at a working bee planned for this Sunday the 30th of September. If you think you will be able to assist with an hour or two, please register your interest with our Rear Commodore Marina John Haddon by emailing him on or by calling Reception on (08) 9386 6437.

Storage Units Available 

Tired of having to bring down all the supplies every time you head out or have some maintenance to do? Don't forget we have lockable storage units available for hire. Approximately 2m x 2m x 2m, and if that's too much space you can always share with a friend. Great for storing all those items that take up room at home or on the boat (skis, ropes, spare sails, cleaning products, tenders and outboards, fuel containers etc).
Just think, another shed, a place to hide those extra little purchases, make room to move around the shed at home, and reduce that nagging feeling.
We only have a few left so please contact our Membership Manager Sam on for further details or to secure your spot.



Dinghy Racks Available

Don't forget that we have Dinghy Racks for hire if you want to keep your decks clear during your Winter day trips. Keep those kayaks, paddle boards, or tenders safe but still in a convenient location at the Club so they are there when you need them. 
Our Winter Special is only running for 1 more month so make sure you get in quick - $100/rack from June 1 2018 - November 1 2018
Please contact our Membership Manager Sam on for further details or to secure your spot.
