The CYC Archives consists of a variety of memorabilia collected since Claremont Yacht Club was formed in 1905. We celebrated the centenary of CYC with the Commodore’s Cup Centenary Race on the 20th March 2005, and the publication of “Claremont Yacht Club; 100 years of History 1905 – 2005”.
Archival material has been collected over the intervening years with several attempts being made to collate and record the items reflecting the many and varied activities of the members. The Archive Crew has continued to sort this substantial collection of photos, trophies, cups and shields, minutes of club committee meetings, boating equipment, as well as information collected from interviews with many club members for the centenary book.
The Archive Crew meets most weeks on Thursday morning and on the first Thursday of every month we have morning tea with the Old Salts. We invite all club members to feel free to join us at any time, either to help collate the Archival material or to view specific records.
The Archive collection is an ongoing project and welcomes donations to the club of memorabilia, documents, and photographs related to Claremont Yacht Club.
