There will only ever be one “Shaggers!

Shag Islet Cruising Yacht Club (SICYC) is a not-for-profit organisation created for cruising sailors and boating people who enjoy the camaraderie and friendships made on the ocean.

Affectionately known as “Shaggers,” our rapidly growing club has brought together over 7,000 members (all identified as Vice Commodores) from around Australia and the world to join in the light-hearted revelry we strive to maintain.

Each year “Shaggers” hosts our flagship event, “The Rendezvous,” at Gloucester Passage in the Whitsundays right alongside the famed Shag Islet where it all began (no doubt over a glass of red), many years ago.

The Rendezvous” attracts hundreds of boats and their fun loving crews and is 4 days of fun and games with new and old friends alike.

As a member, you will instantly become a part of a fast growing family of likeminded people from all over the world. And with membership around the price of a good bottle of red, you can’t go wrong.

If you’re not already a member, it’s time you became one!

We are “exclusively – non exclusive”

Cruising and celebrating for a worthy cause.

SICYC is a not-for-profit Incorporated Association and its primary charity to date has been The Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia (PCFA). Since May 2009, just over $654,000 (AUD) has been raised by SICYC and its members to aid Prostate Cancer Research and Awareness.

About Shag Islet

Shag Islet is situated in the Gloucester Passage in the Whitsunday Region in North Queensland, Australia (20 03.8 S ... 148 26.5 E). It is a small, rocky islet with a beach which is exposed on the southern end on a falling tide.

There is nothing on the islet except at the annual SICYC Rendezvous when hundreds of "Vice Commodores" gather on the last week end in August each year. MAP
