Post racing competitors and guests are invited to enjoy the delights of the Royal Corinthian Yacht Club's waterfront clubhouse. There will be a two-course steak barbeque supper on Friday evening (tickets to be booked in advance), dinner will also be available in the club on Saturday evening by arrangement with the Steward and the prize giving will take place at the clubhouse as soon as possible after racing on Sunday.
