Camp Quality


For nearly three decades, RPYC have proudly hosted a Camp Quality Day in conjunction with the Rotary Club of Mount Lawley, where Members come together to offer sailing and boating experiences to children and families who are living with cancer. This event is always a fantastic day filled with laughter and cheer for children and their families.

Starlight Foundation


Starlight Children’s Foundation is about Brightening the lives of sick kids.  In conjunction with Swan River Sailing and Sailability, the Club hosts the Starlight WA Extravaganza providing an day of adventures out on the water and just as much fun and laughter back onshore.  It’s the perfect way to help kids forget about all things medical!
