The Cruising Yacht Club of Australia celebrates its 75th anniversary in 2019 and Members, guests and yachting enthusiasts alike are in for a treat with a year-long celebration planned.

The Club famous for the world-renowned Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race and its Clubhouse's idyllic location on Sydney Harbour will mark its 75th year and pay tribute to the past, present and future with a range of activities, events and offers including but not limited to:

In addition to the above events and activities, and others to be announced, the Club has introduced a range of new Membership benefits and inclusions, with Members now provided better value than ever before.

The Club has also launched a new logo celebrating the 75-year anniversary, which will be used in the Clubhouse, across the Club's digital platforms, in Offshore magazine and on a select range of merchandise released later in the year.

"The 75th anniversary is a significant milestone for the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia and a year-long celebration we want to conduct involving Members and guests alike," Commodore Paul Billingham said.

"We encourage all to come to the Club and join the party and trust this celebration is one befitting of our founders, current Members and the future of the organisation too.

"We can't wait to celebrate and look forward to seeing you at the Club and on the water to join in the fun."
