What's On This Week

Sassy Sailing Sisters Meet & Greet
Friday 7th October  6:00 pm

The Sassy Sailing Sisters development program is casting off this Friday 7th October with a meet and greet of the group at 6pm in the West lounge. Here, mentors, trainers and participants will get to know each other before starting their amazing development journey.
We would like to thank all who made this program come to life as this would not have been possible without the financial support received from the Victorian State Government Office of Sports and Recreation under the Change Our Game program. Also from our numerous sponsors, as well as the support of many  RGYC members who will play a huge part in mentoring, developing and assisting the participants throughout their journey.
The group will stay for members’ night so please come and say ‘Hi’ to the girls and make them feel welcome .
