Become member

SICYC’s aim is to create and maintain a sound Network for Cruising Yachties and individuals who enjoy boating. Each member (all members are “Vice Commodores”) representing an individual Nautical Location, i.e. an Island, Islet, River, Bay, about which they have some knowledge so as to be able to provide advice or assistance to other “Vice Commodores.” As an SICYC Vice Commodore, your social commitments could well be your most demanding responsibility.

For a one off cost of $80 per person you can become a non voting “Ordinary Life Member.”

Membership includes an SICYC “Vice Commodore” Polo Shirt, “Life Membership Card,” access to the SICYC website Member’s area, Newsletters , along with a myriad of discounts which are made available by our growing sponsor companies.

Membership includes postage and handling of Member Polos and Member Cards.

Couples memberships

SICYC’s aim is to also accommodate couples, especially where both members use a common email address.

Once you are on the “Join Now” page, you will see a “Couples” button. Click on this and you will be able to add details of both of your details along with your unique shirt sizes for your member Polos.

You will each receive a SICYC Polo and Member Card.

Couples Membership is also only $80 per person ($160 per couple).

SICYC communications will then be sent to the common email address supplied.

IMPORTANT: If you desire using separate, unique email addresses you will need to each join as Individuals.

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
