Thanks so much to Mal for taking his ride on

lawn mower to the club for a spin!

And thanks to Bill for clearing up the palm leaves in the garden.

 These two members did this without asking – it does make a difference to the appearance of the club – so thanks!

  Everyone is welcome to pick up some leaves or pull out the weeds if they are down that way

All help is greatly appreciated.

That's great - we want you to have your say and share your thoughts with the world. However, we have a few rules that you must follow to keep it fun for all. Please don't be rude, abusive, swear or vilify others. Apart from some pretty serious sport sanctions, we also can ban you and report you if things get out of hand. So play fair and have fun, and thanks for your contribution.

Social Sailing at MYC 2018

SOCIAL SAILING

 Social sailing is an activity that the club runs on some Saturdays throughout the year. This is something the anyone can participate in. 

Further details are available under Sailing in the main menu above.

We meet at the marina at 12 noon and are usually back in by 4. So if you want to join us contact Bob on 4956 2618 or mazandbob01@bigpond.com and reserve a spot.

You don’t even have to have been out on the water on any sort of boat. You will now have the chance to go for a quiet sail on a yacht to get an idea of what sailing is all about. You will be taken out with an experienced skipper and crew and you will get a chance to try steering the vessel and trimming the sails. Or you can just sit back and relax.

 

The following dates are possible social sailing days.
