Opening Day

by

The official opening of the 2016 Season is on Saturday 5 March, with a sail past followed by a short race.

The fleet, including both yachts and dinghies, will perform a sail past the Commodore, who will probably be in one of the club's rescue boats.  The day is planned as a fun event, although not sure if Commodore Col thought it was much fun last year, after being on the receiving end of several water balloons.

It would be great to see as many boats on the water as possible as this will be a great opportunity to promote the club within the local community.

The Sail Past will occur within the harbour area at 1400 Hrs.  The race is scheduled to commence at 1430 Hrs.

Course for the Yachting Division is:  Start - Slade Rock (S) - SECM (S) to Finish.  Start / Finish line as per Sailing Instructions.

Course for Dinghy Division will be notified prior to the Sail Past.

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.
