The Shag Islet Cruising Yacht Club (SICYC) will be returning to the Clarence River again this year to enjoy another week of cruising and sailing on our beautiful river.
Around 19 vessels will be setting off from Iluka on Thursday May 23 and visiting the towns of Harwood, Maclean, Brushgrove, Grafton, Ulmarra, Lawrence and Yamba.
The club has over 6000 members worldwide from 17 nations and is a not for profit incorporated association. Its primary charity is The Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and the Club has raised over $500,000 in the last seven years, to promote Prostate Cancer Research and Awareness.
The club enjoyed its inaugural social event so much, they are keen to return and enjoy the beauty of the Clarence River and the local hospitality shown to them along the way.
