Strategic Plan 2023 – 2028

Welcome to the Royal Geelong Yacht Club’s Strategic Plan—a roadmap towards a future filled with possibilities. Our Board has thoroughly evaluated every aspect of our club, considering our programming, governance and operational capacity with a keen eye on the future. We’ve engaged with members, staff and stakeholders to craft this blueprint for our future, ensuring every voice is heard.

I am proud to unveil our ambitions for the Royal Geelong Yacht Club from 2024 to 2028. These next five years promise exciting opportunities as we embrace challenges within sailing and beyond. Our aim is clear: to excel, adapt with agility, engage our members more frequently and fortify our Club’s resilience for generations to come.

At the heart of our Club are dedicated leaders, supported by the commitment of our staff and volunteers. Their efforts are instrumental in our success. As we look ahead, we recognize their contributions will be key to achieving our goals.

Our Strategic Plan reflects our commitment to fostering participation, collaboration, and positive relationships, and creating vibrant spaces that nurture social connections and our shared love for sailing and boating.

We aspire to deliver unparalleled experiences for our members and customers, setting the bar high with exceptional programs and services.

Our efforts have been recognized by regional and state stakeholders, and we remain steadfast in upholding integrity, transparency and accountability in governance.

I wholeheartedly endorse this plan to every member, staff and stakeholder of the Royal Geelong Yacht Club. Let’s embrace a future filled with opportunities and shared successes.
