Help Register
Does anyone have any skills or time that could assist the Yacht Club from time to time?  Richmond Yacht Club is largely run by volunteers and dedicated committee members on a small budget.  We would like to put together a list of our members that are willing to offer some help or skill to the club in one form or another.  This wouldn’t be a huge commitment but just the occasional request to help with a small task.  For example, spring cleaning working bees, building maintenance, mail outs, marketing, website, bar, prizes, sponsorship gathering and odd jobs. Putting your name on the help list would mean that you would be prepared to help without being needed to be begged to help!
If you are willing to contribute, please contact us at the yacht club on 376 4332 or email us at info@richmondyc.org.nz.

Parking Changes
Please note the changes to parking restrictions around the club.  The parking spaces near the Yacht Club have become pass parking only (yellow lines).  The visitor spaces (white lines) will remain on the harbour edge.
Crews can apply to Westhaven for crew passes on an individual basis and visitors can apply for passes for special occasions.

Race Management Training
Anyone interested in getting involved in Race Management and needs to up skill can find free course details here.  Race Management Seminar Programme
