The RVMYC was formed to provide an avenue for people with an interest in boating to gather and enjoy boating activities.
Today, the Club offers many and varied activities and functions at which Members and Guests may enjoy the friendship of interesting people from all walks of life, and with whom they can share the pleasure of boating and social activities.
Becoming a member of the RVMYC offers a number of advantages to the boating person. The Club offers all Members a forum to get together and make new friends with similar boating interests.
However, our activities are not limited to this. Our social activities include Winery Tours, Shows, Excursions, Dinners, Trivia nights, and Christmas in July. Although many members have boats ranging from small to large cruisers, we try to cater for all pedigrees, ranging from trips to Heron Island and the Maribyrnong River to cruising various destinations around the bay and far afield.
Regular events in the annual program include:
• Season Opening Day
• Spring Fashion Lunch
• Christmas and New Year functions
• River Discovery Cruises
• Portarlington Day Cruise
• Easter Weekend Cruise
• Annual Gala Presentation and Awards Night
• Annual Fishing Competition
