RYC Quiz Night
Friday 25th July
Fun & Games! Wisdom & Silliness…
A highlight of the social calendar the RYC Quiz Night returns. Showcase your general and naughty-cal knowledge!
Invite your crew and friends along, especially if you think they may be smarter than you. Or we can put you with those of similar intelligence. The fishing game returns by popular demand but for those with limited sporting prowess we have some simple, fun games for you. The Video Ref is off for the evening so the judges can be bribed. The girls in the Galley are ready to satisfy you again in the happy belly department ($20).
Bar opens at 6:30pm with dinner from 7pm. Quiz & Games start 7:30pm.
RSVP number of guests for games & dinner by Tuesday 22 July.

Richmond member in next Volvo Race
David Swete, a Richmond Yacht Club member, is returning for his second Volvo Ocean Race with the young team Alvimedica based out of Newport, Rhode Island. David started his racing with his family doing Richmond’s Family Cruising races moving onto more serious racing with his Dad in Richmond events.
In the 2011-2012 edition with Team Sanya, Dave competed as race crew and was honoured with the prestigious Hans Horrevoets Award for Young Sailor of the Race. Dave’s recent accomplishments include winning the 2014 Newport Bermuda Race with the Mini Maxi Shockwave. With this team, Dave also won the 2014 Antigua 600 and placed first in Key West 2013. He has been logging ocean-racing miles with four Sydney Hobarts, two Fastnets, the Transatlantic Race, Transpac, and two Middle Sea Races to his credit including a 2009 win on the TP52 Lucky. A graduate of the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron’s youth program, Dave won the 2009 World Match Racing Championships with Adam Minoprio. He also competed in the 2012 America’s Cup World Series events with China Team and Red Bull Racing.
