It's almost that time of year again! This year there won't be an increase in subs so you can expect to pay the same as last year, invoices for the 2016/17 season will be sent out shortly and if you pay before the 31st of August 2016 you will receive a discount

patron of typbc

We recently received this photo of Mr N Bluck, who was Patron of our club in 1928 and 1929.

This got us thinking about how many other interesting photos you might have that tell the story of the clubs history. If you could please send them into the office that would be great. office@yacht.org.nz
