October Guest Speaker


Recreational Boating is committed to education and safety as part of their charter.  Every second month SYC hold guest speaker evenings on a variety of interesting and informative topics – navigation, debriefs of cruises in company, fishing hints and tips, radio techniques, marine diesel maintenance, and many other topics including combined speaker nights with Sail through the winter months. 

Our October Guest Speaker evening is October 30 2019 at 7:30pm in the Training Auditorium.

He’s Back!! Five years ago we had the privilege of Ian Jones as our fishing competition guest speaker.

His wit, technical knowledge and local experience made for an entertaining evening. Ian is a longstanding fishing hero from our kindred brothers at Beaumaris Motor Yacht Squadron, on the water often several times a week, chasing various species, especially the prized Snapper.

His insight is sought by most of the radio fishing shows dating back to the long running Rex Hunt version. Ian also works at Southern Sports Fishing, the local tackle outlet in Black Rock. He will bring to us the current trends and successful set ups for Snapper fishing in our local waters. With experience from both sides of the tackle counter it will be a night not to miss.

Don’t forget that the first fifty entries receive a bulging show bag! See you on Wednesday 30th of October. with the comp on Sunday 10th November.
