Queensland Club Changes


May 27, 2019

Queensland clubs, Pine Rivers Radio Yacht Club & Club Kawana Radio Yachts have both undergone some significant changes to their structure.

\images\lakesams1Pine Rivers Radio Yacht Club, at their AGM held on the 5th May, it was recorded that the club would no longer exist from this date. This step by PRRYC was taken as a way of moving forward, having found an acceptable venue after the Lakeside Park closure.

\images\lakesams2All members wishing to continue radio sailing have become members of the Lake Samsonvale Water Sports Association (LSWSA) with the LSWSA being the nearest lake sailing and water sports venue for the Brisbane area. It is located in the pretty Samford Valley on the northern outskirts of Brisbane.The lake is on the upper reaches of the North Pine River, about 45 minutes by car from the City and within minutes of northern Brisbane suburbs. It offers a great venue for sailing, rowing, canoeing and relaxed watching from a well-maintained clubhouse. A grassed shoreline gives heaps of room to rig, with direct access to the water.

At the same time, Club Kawana Radio Yachts has announced it has ceased to exist with members wishing to continue sailing becoming members of the newly formed Sunshine Coast Radio Sailing Club. Racing will continue at the same venue on the Sunshine Coast and the club will host this years Eddie Cowell International Regatta in August.
