The Southport Yacht Club Associates Committee gathers together to support all aspects of the Club’s facilities and activities. The Committee hosts luncheons, dinners, getaways, weekly raffles and mega raffles.
The monthly meetings bring together like-minded ladies (the majority are not boat owners) with a variety of talents to ensure we cover a myriad of fundraising events.
The Club has four great facilities:- SYC Main Beach: The home of our boating events, function room and waterfront dining along with weekend entertainment. This is the venue for the majority of our activities.
SYC Hollywell Sailing Squadron: From juniors to Olympic Champions and Sailability (sailing for the disabled). The youth sailing program is second to none and has resulted in some fantastic achievements and is the future of our Club.
Oxenford Watersports Centre: The location where we hold all our Youth Sailing (Tackers 1 & 2) and school programs.
SYC Dux @ Stradbroke: This is our “jewel in the crown” retreat on South Stradbroke Island. Only accessible by boat, this island getaway ensures our members enjoy a natural setting whilst beautifully maintained by permanent caretakers.
The Associates have raised funds for over 40 years to assist in maintaining and growing our Club.
