Gaffers Day coming soon

The Sydney Amateur Sailing Club will host Gaffers Day on Sunday 8 October. RSYS Members are warmly invited to join this biennial celebration of the tradition of Classic yachting on Sydney Harbour.

Enjoy breakfast on the SASC wharf at 8.00 am and watch the classic yachts arriving to tie up at the club. The official welcome and firing of the cannon follow at midday and the Rally starts in Athol Bight at 1.00 pm.

For those who wish to follow the event rather than sail, the classic 1939 ferry 'Proclaim' has been chartered. The ferry will depart from Mosman Wharf at 12.15 pm and Old Cremorne Wharf at 12.30 pm – returning at approximately 3.00 pm.

Ferry Tickets are $65 for the cruise and include a welcome drink and refreshments - a selection of dips, meats, olives and cheese platters with grilled Turkish bread as well as sushi and wraps followed by fruit platters, chocolate cake and tea or coffee. 

As there are a limited number of tickets, it is advisable to book early via the SASC office on 02 9953 1433 or email for more information.
