 Club Marine Pittwater Sail Expo at RPAYC - 16-17 March, 2013

The second annual Club Marine Pittwater Sail Expo is on over this weekend at the Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club and includes being able to tour such beautiful vessels as Wild Oats X, as above, as well as many other equally stunning yachts, catamarans and find out more about everything under the sun you may need to keep your boat 'ship shape'. With great food on offer, nice music to listen while you're eating it and an opportunity to learn about the RPAYC's racing, cruising, sail training and children's sailing program it's a great way to enjoy a few hours today at one of our premier yacht clubs.
