Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club Sesquicentenary Welcoming Sculpture
The Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club unveiled their Sesquicentennial Sculpture on Saturday October 15, 2016 marking the beginning of a year of celebrations to commemorate the Club’s 150 years of sailing. The official date for The Club’s 150th birthday is October 15, 2017.
The RPAYC is one of the oldest yacht clubs in the country and boasts a rich history in sailing. Members have won almost every type of sailing accolade available and the Club takes great pride in its contributions to the local community. To celebrate such an important milestone, a commemorative monument was created as a welcoming sculpture for Members and guests to the Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club.
To design the sculpture, the Club commissioned sailing artist, John Woulfe to create the whole piece from start to finish. General Manager, Suzanne Davies commented that John Woulfe was a clear stand out in selecting an artist for the sculpture.

Wahu Surfer Groms Comp. Underway At DY
WAHU SURFER GROMS COMP PRES. BY WOOLWORTHS LANDS ON SYDNEY'S NORTHERN BEACHES
DEE WHY, SYDNEY Saturday, 15 October 2016
The Wahu Surfer Groms Comp was graced by picturesque three-foot peaks at Dee Why today for event two of the nine event series.
Jarvis Earle’s (Cronulla, NSW) dangerous frontside attack was perfectly suited to the punchy left rip-bowls of Dee Why. The lightening fast goofy-footer surfed well beyond his years in the Under-14 Boys, posting a handful of impressive scores in excess of seven points and made it known that he’d be a major threat going towards the finals.
Saxon Reber (Beacon Hill, NSW) put on a dominant display of rail surfing to post a 15.84 heat total (out of a possible 20 points) in the Under-14 Boys. As a result, Reber has taken the top spot on the leaderboard going into tomorrow’s finals.
Northern Beaches duo Cedar Leigh-Jones (Avalon, NSW) and Lily Macdonald (Freshwater, NSW) looked unstoppable over the course of their respective Under-14 Girls exchanges with both surfers posting heat totals in excess of 15.00 points. Both surfers performed a variety of textbook hooks and turns to post the aforementioned totals and send a warning shot to their fellow competitors.
Landen Smales (Peregian Beach, Qld) got within a whisker of posting a perfect wave score, notching up a 9.5 (out of a possible ten points) in the Under-10 Boys. Smales executed five critical turns to post the score and leave his fellow competitors chasing two-wave combinations to take away his lead.
