Unique Vehicle Display at RMYC on Sunday, 23rd May. We now have over 80 entries so we are guaranteed a great display as in previous years. We encourage all members to become involved in this great display!

  • This is our major fund raiser. With 424 members now, if each of us contributes, we can raise a great amount to donate to BEAR COTTAGE and to our local MARINE RESCUE. All money raised goes to these organisations – nothing to us or RMYC.
  • There are 4 ways members can contribute
    • Enter a display vehicle,
    • Volunteer for duties assisting on the day – ring or text me  0409 860001
