2021 Rendezvous update


The countdown to SICYC Rendezvous 2021 has begun!

UPDATE 11/06/2021
The iconic Shag Islet Rendezvous is well on truly on this year and the theme for this year will be “Rasta Party!” Think Bob Marley, Reggae music, Caribbean island life, red, yellow and green colours, and some unusual herbal smells in the air (SICYC does not condone any illegal activity). I’m sure as happens every year, we will see some outrageous costumes on the night, accompanied by a superb reggae band and perhaps a Caribbean rum or 2?

The Brochure is being prepared now and will be out on email and the Facebook page soon and will have all the details for each day’s activities. As an overview the format we all know and love will be closely followed:

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
