Members – Welcome to our New Website

Dear Members,

Over the past few months I have been working on a new website for RMYS and here is it. 

Stage 1 is today, our live date.
This is the first stage of the new website. There may be some broken links and missing buttons within the first 24 hours. These will be checked and fix as quickly as possible.
 
Stage 2 (1-4 weeks after live date)
– Archive news feed (pdf’s) will be added to new site 
– Archive video & photo galleries will be added to new site
– A new buy/sell webpage will be set up for members
– Weather widgets will be reviewed and improved
– Member Portal will be updated
– Events calendar from June – Sep 2019 will be imported into ECAL
– Corporate Partner & Sponsor logos updated
 
Thank you to members Henrik Vedeler and Brian D’Souza for taking so many quality photos over the past year, on and off the water. Many of these photos have been used throughout the website and were significant contributions to improving the club’s overall image online. 

Initially the new website may appear very different to you all, but after a short time you will notice the navigation menu and sub menu’s are all the same.

The main changes you will notice will be;

Homepage Layout
The homepage layout is quite different to our existing homepage. It’s primary role is to quickly promote our main offerings and meet the needs of all membership types with the objective in mind of showcasing the best aspects of the club.

Calendar of Events – ECAL
Our calendar will be visually different, yet user friendly thanks to its intuitive design. It will allow you to browse events with ease and sync them to your own personal calendar. ECAL has been successful with other sailing and sporting clubs and examples can be seen on websites such as SYCRBYC and BYS

EBreeze Newsletter
The content in eBreeze won’t change, but the overall look of our weekly newsletter will change following the new website going  live. This is due to a different newsletter platform being implemented over the next week or two.  

If you experience any fundamental issues, at anytime after the new website goes live please contact me immediately.
