“YOUR CLUB OUR MEMBERS”

After 56 days we were finally able open up the Club and provide a limited service to our members on Monday 18th May 2020. A very big thank you to all of the members who attended our inaugural dining with a difference and we greatly appreciated your comments and feedback.

A friendly reminder that we are open Friday-Monday for sit-down dining or hot take away while take away frozen meals and beverages are available 7 days a week.

I can understand the frustrations by some members who simply wish to have a drink at the bar or sit in the Wetbar area and enjoy the view with some friends but the current regulations stipulate that only 20 persons per venue are allowed and must be seated with alcohol only served with food. We have arranged a number of sessions for members which include afternoon sessions on Friday, Saturday & Sunday that will enable you to have tapas or light snacks inside the venue. View details of our scheduled sittings here. It is imperative that you contact us and make an appointment as if you do arrive at the Club without an appointment, we cannot guarantee you a table.

The recent increase in anti-social behaviour opposite the Club has prompted the WA Police to target Northside Drive especially in the afternoon and early evening. You are reminded that the speed limit on Northside Drive is posted at 20 KPH and the speed limit within the Club under the Clubhouse Bylaws is as follows:

                “2.3. A person shall not drive a vehicle on the Club grounds at a speed in excess of 8 kilometres per hour or in a dangerous or careless manner, or without reasonable consideration for other persons, or other vehicles.”

The theft from HYC and boats continue and we ask that all members remain vigilant and report any person who is acting suspiciously and any photographs would be beneficial in identifying these culprits. The new motor on the gate has been repaired and the vehicle and pedestrian gates will continue to remain closed during these restricted trading hours.

Parents are reminded that playgrounds are still closed and we ask that you respect our policy and not place your children over the fence and into the playground area as it has not been sanitised during the closure and breaches the government policy.

Notices have been sent to all members about the AGM however I will again advise that in compliance with the HYC Constitution all members are advised that the Hillarys Yacht Club Annual General Meeting will be held at the Clubhouse on Sunday 13 September 2020 commencing at 10AM. All business matters will be distributed no later than 13 August 2020. Members are reminded that any business not covered under Clause 17.1 must be by way of a motion in writing moved and seconded by full financial eligible members and lodged with the General Manager not less than 45  days prior to the date of the AGM.
