Celebrating the life of
Mrs Yvonne Juanita Davey (nee Cunningham)
A Celebration of Life service for the Late Mrs Yvonne Davey will be held on Monday 26th July at 12.30 pm AEST.
The service will be live streamed for all who cannot attend.
The Live Stream link: www.myeventlive.com.au/yd will become active shortly before the service starts.
Yvonne and Bruce (dec.) were long standing members and supporters of Rye Yacht Club and we know that if asked about donations in her memory, Yvonne would undoubtedly have appreciated the support of others to help keep this small and generous club to keep educating and supporting young sailors.

Rye Yacht Club
The Rye Yacht Club Sailing School in its current form has been built up over the past 15 years. We run learn to sail programs for 7 to 11 year olds (Tackers Courses), for 12 to 18 year olds (OutThere Sailing) and for adults. We are accredited with Australian Sailing and were one of the Clubs chosen to pilot the new OutThere Sailing Program 3 years ago. We also run Windsurfing Courses, Stand Up Paddle boarding Courses, Powerboat Handling Courses and Safety Boat Operator Courses. We run coaching courses for both children and adults once they have become competent in basic sailing skills.
Over the past few summers, we have had around 65 children sailing each weekend. We also run a sailing program for Rye Primary School that involves every Grade 6 student sailing with us on five Tuesdays in February and March each year. We provide a number of Sailing Scholarships for Rye PS students each summer. We try to make our program accessible to everyone. We have one young girl who has now sailed with us for four seasons who is totally blind. She now sails a boat by herself; we have an instructor following her to act as her eyes and let her know if other boats are approaching or which way to go to get back to shore.
Our Sailing School has been recognised as the Best Discover Sailing Centre twice in the last eight years at the Victorian Sailing Awards and two of our Instructors have won awards for the best Instructor at both Victorian and Australian Sailing Awards also in the last eight years.
The Sailing School is run by volunteers and is absolutely vital to the Club in continuing to bring new members.
