Upcoming interruption to power supply - 12th April 2018

Ausgrid has advised of essential upgrade and maintenance work in the area on the local electricity network on Thursday 12 April from 7.30am to 4pm. The power supply will be temporarily interrupted during these hours to allow crew to safely do the work. During this time the CYCA temporary clubhouse, offices, members change facilities/toilets and the marina will not have any power and therefore will not be operational.

CYCA Heritage

The CYCA was established in 1944 when some keen sailors started meeting informally in a photographic studio in Sydney. They soon acquired a boatshed in Rushcutters Bay and the rest, as they say, is history.  

Over the years the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia has become Australia's leading exponent of ocean racing and cruising, and sea safety.

In 1945 a planned cruise to Hobart quickly turned into a race and the famous Sydney Hobart Yacht Race was born.  The race captured the imagination of the Australian public and it soon developed into an international yachting classic, attracting competitors from around the world.
