W ELCOME TO

Claremont Yacht Club

Welcome to this guided tour of our much loved Claremont Yacht Club. At Claremont we boast that Members have many things in common, but two of the most important are a love of boating and a casual love of life. This book is not just a snapshot of the club for its existing members to share with friends and family. It is also an opportunity for the club to reach out to its extended neighbourhood and its business hinterland; to illustrate our great facilities and camaraderie and welcome you down to experience the club first hand.

For our social public, we are sure you will find it is not the hard-core boating enclave which the name suggests, but a reflection of the social interests of its eclectic membership who by a coincidence enjoy boating. Typically they are on dry land as much as off and welcome newcomers with open arms. For the boating public, Claremont offers the opportunity to join and enjoy a diverse range of water-based activities as well as the privacy to get on with your own thing. See you soon, The Members Claremont Yacht Club

ABOUT THE CLUB

Claremont Yacht Club prides itself on its location and its capacity to welcome and entertain its Members and visitors. As part of this capacity, the Members enjoy their own inhouse chef and kitchen for use on casual occasions and frequent special occasions. The public and local industry are also welcome to join on a social basis and to host private functions and weddings. Upstairs the clubhouse features an atmospheric Members’ Bar and Ballroom/Function Centre, both of which reflect the club’s long, rich history. Downstairs is the more contemporary Deepdene waterfront bar and function area named after the original building, Deepdene House. Members enjoy short-order food during all bar hours, day/ night access to change room facilities and an ice supply, making it an easy home away from home.

For boat owners, our jetty system offers gate and CCTV security, a refuelling berth for diesel and premium unleaded petrol and individual power and water services to most pens. Located as it is in the northern reach of Freshwater Bay, the club enjoys breathtaking views across the river to Point Walter, as well as views of the cliffs on both sides of the bay. This natural vista is complemented by the jetty system and the Members’ boats in the foreground. Freshwater Bay and hence the Claremont Yacht Club are located midway between the Port of Fremantle and the City of Perth. Members therefore have many choices for boating on the idyllic Swan River and its marine hinterland: • up-river to Perth Water • beyond Perth to the Swan Valley vineyards • south along the Canning River • down-river to the historic Port of Fremantle, and • along the north and south coasts beyond Fremantle, Rottnest and Garden Islands.

claremontyachtclub.org.au


Closer to home the shape of Freshwater Bay, named by the crew of the famous H.M.S. Beagle, sets Claremont Yacht Club well back from the main thoroughfare of river traffic, making it the only club to enjoy this serenity. Back on dry land, the clubhouse is located in the heart of one of Perth’s most desirable districts and complements other great lifestyle facilities that Claremont and its neighbouring suburbs have to offer: sports reserves, shopping, galleries, restaurants, schools, the University of Western Australia and of course Perth’s wonderful weather. It is also surrounded by several entertainment strips in Claremont, Cottesloe and Nedlands, most of which retain the area’s engaging village appeal. Furthermore CYC is within walking distance of the heart of the Claremont Quarter shopping precinct.

While parking is available at the Club and nearby, the Claremont train station and conveniently located bus stops provide relatively easy access to public transport. New Members are always welcome at Claremont, especially those who wish to participate in water activities, whether in person or as volunteers. We also have a range of crewing opportunities and training programs to assist newcomers to fast-track their confidence in boating. Alternatively you may wish to join as a Social Member just to enjoy our Club and its many social, dining and function opportunities. In short, Claremont Yacht Club can meet the broadest range of needs and wishes in a homely, casual manner. Furthermore, we have many options and flexible packages to meet every budget, no matter what you are looking for. So come down soon and introduce yourself, to take in the pleasures of one of Perth’s best kept social secrets.

A BRIEF HI S TORY Claremont Yacht Club was formed at an inaugural meeting held at the nearby Hotel Continental on February 17 1905 Commodore Sydney Stubbs, then Mayor of Claremont, negotiated with the owner Mr Alpin Thomson to purchase a home known as ‘Deepdene’ on the present site of the Club for the price of £1,000. It is said that Stubbs earned a discount on the sale price by successfully negotiating the toss of a coin! The Club proved popular and membership reached 150 during the 1905/06 season. A license was secured in 1905, and the Club became incorporated. On March 25th that year, CYC held its first race - a Club event - for a handsome cup presented by Commodore Stubbs. Twenty-six boats entered and eighteen started. Our first opening day followed on November 6th 1905, with a string band, a large marquee and a fashionably dressed crowd of 500 guests, including a contemporary A-list of Perth’s best known identities. It is said that great legacies are born of hardship and this is certainly true at CYC. As with many clubs of the time, membership fell badly during the First World War and finances became critical. In 1923 an almost clean sweep of Officers and the Committee saw Commodore Fred Thomas begin the Club’s resurgence. Opening Day in 1924 saw a record fleet of 68 yachts from all clubs.

The threat to the club of yet another world war was never more evident than in the tragic story of a trophy recently donated to the club by Melinda Fisher, granddaughter of 1930’s CYC member Norman Morrison. The entire crew of Norman’s yacht Hopalong saw active service and all but Norman were killed in action. The sombre reality was too much for Norman who upon returning from the war sold his boat and never returned to the club. Nonetheless, the die was cast for a club united by hardship as much as good times - such is the intricate fabric only available in such a long standing institution. The Club’s present clubhouse building was opened by Governor Sir Charles Gairdner in June 1956, and adjoining land has since been purchased to give increased water frontage and usable space. Today the Members pride themselves on being the only river club in Perth to own their own land and enjoy warm cooperation with their significant neighbours, the Town of Claremont, Bethesda Hospital, Christ Church Grammar School and Methodist Ladies College. The Club would urge Members and Friends to read its official history book ‘Claremont Yacht Club, 100 Years of History 1905 - 2004’, available at the office. The book was compiled by the CYC History Working Group, largely from written contributions from Members and the generous public using a grant from Lotterywest.

THE CLUBHOU S E

The Members’ Bar

T h e D e e pd e n e R o o m

The Members’ Bar at Claremont Yacht Club exudes all the character of a club tastefully evolved over 100 years. Features include the timeless bar, historic memorabilia, an open fireplace and a sweeping outlook over Freshwater Bay.

The recently renovated Deepdene Room has floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the bay and a natural connection with the river just 40 metres away across a manicured lawn. It also features a full bar and the capacity to seat 70 guests or 100 for cocktails.

The Bayview Ballroom The spacious Bayview Room offers another classical atmosphere, formal entry, full-size dance floor and the same exquisite view over Freshwater Bay. With immediate access to the Members’ Bar and the professional kitchen, the Bayview can cater for up to 175 seated guests or 200 in a cocktail configuration. 18

The Deepdene includes a dedicated dance floor, full audio/visual capabilities and indoor barbeques making it ideal for private parties, corporate seminars, professional development days or special dining experiences. Immediate access to the lawn outside makes the Deepdene ideal for family activities.

claremontyachtclub.org.au


Kitchen Throughout the years, the Members at CYC have consistently demanded one thing in particular: great food. For that reason they maintain a full-time chef to ensure quality control. In recent years the Club has taken the initiative to provide for external functions as well as their own Member events and that has driven the quality of our catering to even higher levels. That said, the Club also strives to ensure that the Member experience is not compromised by the presence of private events and this is helped by discerning use of the various rooms. Alternatively, on suitable occasions private events are sometimes made available for Members’ entertainment such as for wine industry nights and special interest events like big screen sports coverage. These events are typically enhanced by great finger food and dedicated wines and beers.

CLUB e v e n t s

For Members, our social calendar is thoughtfully composed of events for all the family to enjoy; good food and good company are paramount.

For local residents and businesses, we welcome you to come down and experience the club first hand; feel free to come and “try before you buy”. Among the highlights of our regular calendar are the Commodore’s Ball, held at the Club and featuring a delicious sit-down meal and entertainment. Between these and a range of special wine and dining experiences Members can always look forward to the next

big event within a few weeks. The Christmas Party and Volunteers’ Night are happy occasions to celebrate friends and loved ones, those who have excelled out on the water and all our hard-working committees and volunteers. Throughout the year the three boating divisions each have their open days, closing days and special events, but the whole Club is welcome to each.

boating accommodation

Jetties and Pens In addition to the Clubhouse facilities, Claremont Yacht Club’s marina accommodates over 170 vessels up to 25m in length. All berths have access to power and water as well as fuel and courtesy trolleys and barrows. The jetty system is serviced by a full-time bosun who maintains the facility. Access to the jetty system entry bridge is via a controlled gate house with CCTV security which also covers the jetties, clubhouse and grounds.

H a r ds t a n d The Club can accommodate up to 8 boats and trailers on its security-lit hardstand area although there is a waiting list for these hardstands as per the pens and moorings.

Moorings and Temporary Accommodation In addition to its pen structure, the Club can also accommodate vessels on moorings at competitive monthly rates. We also offer a sub-letting system for pens vacated when other boats are away on long cruises or for maintenance.

Refuelling The Club provides premium unleaded petrol and diesel through bowsers at competitive prices. A fuel card is available to owner members, providing 24-hour access to the bowsers and an automated payment system via Members’ House Accounts.

Maintenance Complying boat maintenance contractors may register with the administration office to arrange access to the jetty system.

S AILING

The Claremont Yacht Club is a superb environment to discover the joys of sail whether through our competitive weekend racing or in the more relaxed atmosphere of our Twilight Cruises each Wednesday night through the season

Racing Saturday Racing commences at 1400hrs each week during the sailing season (October to April) and races generally last for two to three hours. After racing it’s back to the Clubhouse for presentations. Please note that if you wish to come down and find a place as crew on a boat on a Saturday afternoon, you will need to arrive between 1230hrs and 1300hrs in order to be allocated a boat in time to start the race. Racing continues into the off-season in a very competitive but sociable winter Frost Bite racing program from May to September, so there is never a month when we have no sailing. We encourage family and junior involvement and have membership options to cater for anyone interested in our Keelboat or Dinghy fleets.

Tw i l i g h t s Our sociable Twilight Cruises start at 1830hrs each Wednesday evening from September to April. Anyone wishing to try Twilight Sailing should contact the Office at least a week in advance so we can arrange for allocation to a boat. Please ensure you arrive by 1745hrs to give us time for this allocation. Whether you have been twilighting or not, you are welcome to join us for our very popular Wednesday night buffet in the Bayview Room.

Crewing Keelboat owners and skippers are always on the lookout for new yacht crew for weekend or twilight events. Any prospective Member seeking the fun and rewards that being part of a team can bring, is welcome to register their interest as a crewperson by contacting the office or

just coming down to the Club a couple of hours early and they will be allocated to a skipper. From there on they can start to make longer term arrangements. Once hooked, Crew Membership is available for a very affordable annual subscription.

Training Claremont Yacht Club runs sail training courses in small boats for both adults and children through the summer months and on school holidays. We can teach you the very basics of sailing over three Saturday mornings. Please see the “Adult and Junior Training Courses� section for further details.

P O W ER BOATING

The Power division of the Claremont Yacht Club caters for both the competitive and recreational interests associated with power boating. Apart from its competitive time-trialling the division’s activities include events such as cruising in company, novelty events and fishing competitions. These are just some of the ways Power come together and enjoy ourselves and the fellowship often extends to other clubs who participate in the casually competitive State Championship.

Racing Most people don’t realise that the power boating section has an official season which commences in May. An official opening day takes place with a ‘sail past’ prior to the first round of the time-trialling season; afterwards a sumptuous evening meal and entertainment finishes the day off perfectly. The objective of the time trial competition is to navigate a pre-determined course on the river at an allotted speed and to arrive at manned checkpoints by pre-determined times: “every second counts!” Our Rear Commodore of Power warns: don’t, whatever you do, be put off by the word “competition”, as we are all there to just have a great day out. The emphasis is on fun and enjoyment and an excuse for Members to use their boats through the winter months when they might otherwise have sat unused if not un-loved!

Social

Training

Within the Club, power boat owners bring fellow members, family and friends along to get away and socialise. We also encourage neighbouring clubs to cruise over and compete in our boating events, tie up at our jetty and enjoy a drink and/or meal with us. Events run year round mainly on Saturday afternoons, Sunday mornings and Wednesday summer evenings.

The Claremont Yacht Club Sailing School also caters for power boating courses and other essential courses to promote safety on the water. These courses include:

Members are always looking for new ways to enjoy spending time on the water and the Power Boat section regularly organises special events like fishing competitions, overnight stay-over cruises and rallies navigable by both boats and cars.

• Yachting Australia Power Boat Handling Course

There is a strong contingent of Members who enjoy regular trips to Rottnest, Rockingham, Hillarys, Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour, or as far away as the Abrolhos Islands and Exmouth.

If we don’t have a course running at a convenient time, we can put you in touch with a training group who can help. Please check our web site for future course dates and details. Member and group discounts may apply to some courses; please contact the office for details.

• Recreational Skippers Ticket (for all WA power boat operations over 6 hp) • First aid courses • Yachting Australia Safety Boat Operator Course • VHF Marine Radio Operators Certificate (MROCP & MROVCP)

Dinghies

Claremont Yacht Club enjoys a strong following of Dinghy sailing, especially in Lasers, an Olympic-class boat sailed by a single person. The Laser’s simplicity and elegance have made it one of the world’s most popular sailing dinghies, all the more popular since Australian Tom Slingsby won gold in that class at the 2012 London Olympics.

Most commonly, sailors trying their hand on the Laser already have some sailing experience but for the complete newcomer, we have access to training in the Club’s own Optimists for junior sailors and 420’s for adults. Mirror dinghies are also sailed by several Members of the Club with the Laser fleet.

Id e a l C o n d i t i o n s Because of the Club’s location at the top of Freshwater Bay, CYC enjoys a uniquely sheltered part of the Swan River away from the River channel used by the ferries and launches. This allows the Dinghy Section to set full and proper courses in any breeze direction, making sailing safer and devoid of bad wash. No other club in Perth enjoys these ideal conditions and the location means ours is the only fleet using this area during our regular Sunday morning events.

Racing

Storage

Dinghy racing is run from a start boat, and two rescue/training boats are also on the water throughout. Races are conducted on Sunday mornings from October to April and Sunday afternoons with the keel boats from May to September.

The storage of sailing dinghies is in a locked shed, and the rack system allows individuals to access their boats on their own without needing any assistance. Rigging is done on the lawn abutting the storage shed, and is close to the water, allowing the boats to be launched by one person.

Presentations are made in the Clubhouse after each event, often making use of our internal barbeques in the ground floor “Deepdene Room” close to the rigging area and change room facilities. The bar is available for drinks and snacks, and parents can supervise their children in comfort from the relaxed, contemporary bar, be they inside or out on the waterfront lawn area.

Training For children we run the Yachting Australia’s “Tackers” Programme for which the Club is a registered provider. The programme is available for children wanting to learn to sail and there are also beginners’ courses for adults or advanced courses for those looking to improve their skills. See also the Adult and Junior Training Courses section for further details.

Getting Started Claremont is a very welcoming and friendly club, with people of all ages participating in racing and coaching. Prospective newcomers already owning a boat are very welcome to come and sail with us on a trial basis prior to joining. For those who don’t have a boat, Dinghy Section has a number of ways to help you try out before acquiring your own, once you get the ‘bug’ so widely enjoyed here. Please feel free to contact the Club by phone or email, or come down on a Sunday morning between 8.30am and 9.30am, and you will be made most welcome.

A D ULT & J UNIOR TRAINING COUR S E S

Claremont Yacht Club is the perfect place for families and children to learn to sail. All our courses are accredited Yachting Australia Courses and on successful completion, each person will receive a certificate, log book and their qualification recorded in the national data base. All our instructors are trained by Yachting Australia and their qualifications include first aid and “Working with Children” checks.

Sail Training for T e e n s a n d Ad u l t s “Start Sailing” courses are open to adults and teenagers from 14 years of age and are delivered on Saturday mornings from 8am to 12pm in the beautiful, protected waters of Freshwater Bay. CYC provides all course specific equipment, including the training boats and life jackets. For those who have never sailed but want to learn, this is the ideal opportunity. You will get wet but you will have a lot of fun doing it!

claremontyachtclub.org.au

39


Tackers for Junior Sailors Claremont Yacht Club has embraced Tackers, a national program aimed at giving children aged between 7 and 12 an opportunity to go sailing in a professional, safe and fun environment. For the older kids and adults we can offer the Yachting Australia “Start Sailing a Dinghy” courses on weekends or school holidays. Everything about Tackers is centred on an understanding of how children learn skills and have fun through sport. The “Optimist” boats used in the Tackers program are small and easy to handle, designed to be sailed by children under the age of 12.

40

Children don’t need to have any sailing experience and they don’t need to have their own boat. All the equipment, including life jackets and boats, is provided. They don’t even have to be a Member of the Club to participate, though of course we would be delighted if ultimately they decided to become part of the CYC sailing family. Our Instructors will make sure your children have a great time on the water learning to sail. They play loads of games and go on adventures together to learn how to sail. There isn’t a court, a pitch or an oval like other sports, instead you have the Swan River to explore!

claremontyachtclub.org.au


During Tackers sessions, parents can relax and watch their children - and the exquisite view from the comfort of the clubhouse. There is complementary espresso coffee from the coffee stand in Deepdene, or a barista coffee or beverage during Bar Hours. You could also consider taking the dog for a walk along the pristine Claremont foreshore. The club is also close to the Claremont Train Station and Stirling Highway, and just a 10-minute walk from the temptations of the Claremont Quarter Shopping Centre.

Tackers School Introduction Sailing This is a free activity that school groups may do at Claremont Yacht Club to experience the fun and adventure of sailing but at no cost to the school or children. Tackers School Introduction Sailing is open to children aged between 6 and 12 years old, each session is 2.5 hours in duration and all equipment and instruction is provided, session times are 1000h to 1230h on Wednesdays.

Tackers offers: • 20 hours’ tuition from qualified Yachting Australia Instructors and Assistant Instructors • Combination of on-water and off-water training games • A Tackers kit at each level of the program • A certificate of achievement at the end of the course claremontyachtclub.org.au
