It gives me great pleasure to be able to provide you with an update that is not Covid related, so I will take this as my first official Club update.
Over the past 12 months the Club’s Board & Management have committed to a programme of regenerating the Club’s assets and facilities, from upgrades to the Club’s entrance and gardens and other essential repair works. The commitment to improving the members amenities will continue over the next six months with key projects such as the refurbishment of the Marina A-Arm due to commence in May, structural repairs to the rigging deck ramp and walkway, and the long-awaited Sandbar refresh.
FIRST LOOK AT THE SANDBAR CONCEPT
Here it is, the first glimpse of the Sandbar concept design. By capturing one of our greatest assets, the surrounding beaches and harbour, we plan to open our dining area to the surrounding environment and provide a comfortable waterfront venue that will rival Sydney’s best.
The project will be developed through three stages, with the first stage requiring the relocation of commercial tenants from the Sandbar deck. Construction works will commence within stage two on the Sandbar deck creating a larger entertaining space opened to take in “The Spit” and beach to the North, this stage will include structural upgrades to the subfloor. Enhancing the capability of the Sandbar kitchen in stage three is critical and will enable us to offer members an improved and expanded menu.
Stage one is expected to commence in April, with construction works on stage two beginning shortly after with an expected project timeline of 7-8 weeks to complete. Stage three is currently going through design concepts and regulatory planning.
The Sandbar Cafe will continue to offer its current menu through stages one and two with the Harbourview Room open for beverage service to support members sailing on Wednesday and Saturday.
Regular project updates will be provided to members as we progress through the works via our weekly E-News.
