Joining the CYCT is straightforward, but does involve some formalities. If you know someone in the Club, they can introduce you. Otherwise the simplest way to start is to attend one of the Club meetings and make yourself known to one of the Committee members. You may also want to join one of the regular Club cruises.

MAST Small Projects Funds

Franklin Public Jetty

To provide a public jetty suitable berthing when visiting. MAST is in support of a publicly owned low maintenance floating pontoon and owners of the existing jetty will donate it and its associated 25-year Crown licence. However, the Huon Valley Council have rejected the offer.

The Club provided a letter in support of this project in May 2022 and the committee agreed to provide ongoing support to assist the project over the line.

AED’s on boats (Automated External Defibrillator) Register


When a person suffers a cardiac arrest an AED can save a life so the  availability of AED's and knowing their location is critical. A land-based register can be found online at the Tasmanian ListMap. On the water TMR (Tas Maritime Radio) have enabled boats to register AED’s onboard.

So if you have an AED onboard, add it to your TMR registration details and in an emergency, contact TMR who can assist identifying the nearest AED located on the water.

For club cruises if you are the Cruise Coordinator carrying the club’s AED, go online to your vessel’s TMR registration and record AED details with your vessel. After the cruise, remove the details.
