Gibsons Yacht Club

Sunshine Coast Power & Sail Squadron and Gibsons Yacht Club have a written Memorandum of Understanding whereby yacht club members would, in effect become mentors to CPS graduates. To ensure open lines of communication, an officer of CPS sits on the Board of GYC and a GYC Board member forms a part of the CPS Executive Committee. The arrangement has proven to be extremely positive for both organisations. Their combined membership is now well in excess of 300 members, and both groups share a wide variety of activities together.
