Commodore’s Charity Party
Sunday, 5th August from 4pm
Its only 10 days now until the Commodore’s Charity Party – this is going to be a really great event and we have worked hard to make it entertaining for our Members and guests. Tickets are just Â£20 per person and there will be live music, a raffle and chargrill food. Unfortunately, we cannot run this event unless we have 50 people attending. Therefore, if you think you would like to attend and join in the fun please ensure that you have signed up on the list by Wednesday 1st August. The forecast is looking good, so do come along and bring some friends. As this is a charity event, payment is by cash or cheque only (cheque payable to ‘RCYC Commodore’s Charity’).

Pink Wig Night
Friday, 10th August
Please come support our very own Pink Wig Night at the RCYC.
Since 2009 the ladies of Falmouth (and some of the men) have donned pink wigs the Friday Night before Falmouth Week starts to help raise funds for Breast Cancer.
Many of our members have our own experiences so have decided to hold our own Pink Wig Night.
The rules for play are – for those ladies – and gentlemen – who do not wish to wear a wig please support by wearing something pink. If you do not wish to wear a wig – or pink doesnâ€™t suit your complexion – a Â£5.00 forfeit will have to be paid. Please note – underwear doesn’t count !!
As usual, Brian will be serving a sailing supper that evening and there will be a raffle in support.
