WOODY  POINT YACHT CLUB CHARTER

 

Purpose:

 

This document aims to define the objects of the Club so that its original concept may not be lost or diluted with the passage of time and/or Members, nor fundamentally   changed  in  any  way.    Persons  desiring  otherwise  are  free  to choose from numerous other boating clubs which may better serve their requirements.

 

Activities:

 

Founding  Members of the Woody  Point Yacht  Club were a dedicated group of social  drinkers  with  a   boating  problem.   Their   motivation   was  and  is  the enjoyment of the Pittwater and its inhabitants,  largely facilitated  by craft giving access to the remote foreshores and to the water itself.   Suitable craft included tinnies,  yachts, putt-putts,  work  boats,  in fact  anything  that floats  - and  even some vessels whose buoyancy is questionable.

 

These craft provide a platform for the many and varied pastimes enjoyed by Members,  including  fishing, yachting,  putt-putt  regattas, picnics, parties, breakfasts, etc.

 

The Club  does not favour  a particular  past time so long as a boat is involved either as a means to an end (ie. transport, fishing) or an end in itself (ie. sailing, cruising, just messing).

 

The Club has a penchant for all things traditional - timber boats in particular - and prefers the simple family orientated atmosphere inherent in our unique community.

 

Constitution:

 

A Commodore shall be elected  by popular vote at the Annual  General Meeting together  with other office bearers  as required.   A Committee  of five Members shall   be  responsible   for   organising   all   functions   during   the   year.     The camaraderie  shared  by  Members  is  such  that  'rules' in  the normal  sense  are inappropriate and any semblance of formality is purely for the entertainment such pomp and ceremony usually provides.

However, to maintain a friendly and intimate atmosphere, club membership shall be limited to 100 persons in any year on a first come first served basis.  The club does not discriminate, even ladies and Kiwis are eligible to join.   Senior citizens (capable of pulling beer) may also join and hold office.
