Intermediate members make up an important demographic at the RSYS and contribute greatly to the Club’s culture and atmosphere. Our principal aim is to encourage Intermediate members to use and enjoy the wonderful facilities the Club has to offer. We host a variety of sailing and social events throughout the year to ensure that Intermediates are connected to the Club and other members. Many Intermediates have completed the RSYS Youth Sailing Program, making this next stage in membership a great opportunity to enhance sailing skills and rekindle memories.
The social calendar aims to bring members and their guests together to enjoy the Club year-round. These events are designed to encourage old and new members to be active throughout their early twenties up until late thirties. We organize events such as the Friday Twilight ‘Sunset Bar’, Monthly Wine Tastings, Christmas Drinks and the much anticipated Annual RSYS Ball, our flagship event on the calendar. The Ball always brings members together for a memorable and entertaining evening.
Our Club espouses the spirit and camaraderie of sailing, and Intermediates are strongly encouraged to continue the sport casually and/or in racing. Intermediates are active in a variety of on-water events, domestically and abroad, and are well represented in Match Racing events such as the Hardy Cup. There are many opportunities for Intermediates to get down to the Club and onto the harbour including Saturday and Sunday Racing, Friday Twilights, Intermediates Elliott Raceday and on the RSYS Annual Cruise.
The Committee is continually looking to improve the value Intermediates derive from membership and we always welcome contributions and thoughts from all of our members.
