WHERE ARE YOU?
Your CYA Committee wants to know where you keep the love of your life, your boat, that is!
Why? Because our members are scattered in marinas all around the Auckland area, some are possibly feeling a little bit remote from the ‘action’. If we know where you are it would greatly assist us in the planning of events, not so much the large scale events, but something like a lunchtime cruise to Tiritiri for members who berth in Gulf Harbour, for example. Or it could be a coffee morning where members meet on someone’s boat and just have a good old informal chat to share successes or to solve problems.
In not having our own club-house it would be an easy way of further engendering friendship amongst members and CYA club spirit. Let’s put some more social life into your boating!
