To celebrate the arrival of our brand new Pacer Fleet we would love all members to join us for the christening of the fleet this Friday, 5.30-8.00pm. Please come to the club and have some food or a drink from the Rocks and support the hard work of both the Foundation committee and those that funded the project.
We had a huge weekend at MYC this weekend! We played host to over 130 yachts, mostly sailed by children. As well as the traditional Schnapper Point Regatta (SPR), this year we were asked to host the first Australian Sailing 'Victorian Junior Carnival'. This event was designed as a fun carnival for those children graduating from their learn to sail programs.
The kids enjoyed a "Destination Sail" to Mills Beach, starting off under the “Bridge of Doom”, then more games in the shallows of Mother’s beach. At the same time the older kids, joined by a few sailors with disabilities, competed in the Schnapper Point Regatta which many of you know is an annual event held here at MYC. This year was a bit more relaxed with famous faces on the buoys, music and treats for the kids between the serious racing.
A BIG thank you to all involved for making the weekend a great success!

Many thanks to our intrepid photographers:
Some Div 1, 2 & 3 boats set off on a destination race to Hobsons Bay Saturday morning - the conditions were calm when they left MYC, but got extremely tough later! Well done to the Div 3 boats that made it to HBYC.
click here for some great photos of the boats leaving MYC - "the calm before the storm"
Copied from our app:
"A smaller Division 3 group than planned met for dinner and a few stories after Saturday's race to Hobsons Bay YC. 35+knot winds made for a challenging race for the small Div 3 boats, with 5 boats making it safely to HBYC and 3 heading for refuge at SYC. Great effort everyone keeping the boats and crew safe"
"A particularly good effort by the 5 Div 3 boats that made it to Hobbo safely. Especially when there were only two finishers in each of Div 1 and Div 2. The conditions made it tough going even for the biggest and heaviest boat in the fleet. (We even got some spray over the deck!)"
BIG thanks to ALL of our volunteers who helped at the weekend - it was a great success which wouldn't have been possible without you!

What a turn out! (See Photos)
Perfect weather, a great breeze and the most amazing group ever! We even ran out of sausages. Ella has done an astounding job over summer to make sure these kids have fun and keep coming back. It was great to see Alex again and thankyou Greg Sharman for helping out on the RIBS. Top job on the BBQ Andrew.
Again some new faces: Lucy, Daniel and Chloe Laverty, Ewan Harding, Jay Polson, and Elliot Lloyd
We did talk about this Friday Fun and taking it up a step with music! What I did not realise was the next Friday Fun/Ella’s Fun Coaching is the following Friday (16 February)
That said we also decided to make up the show bags for Junior Carnival this Friday.
May I suggest this…we continue with a BBQ only (with music) at 5:00 then head to the club to make up the show bags?
Lost something? Left over from the night was a pair of port/starboard opti gloves and a medium/large clear food container. Also from previous week some Havaianas thongs. I have them…please claim them.
Last Word....Some may have noticed a new boat out there during the afternoon. It was James and Brooke taking one of the new Pacers for a test run. Although the official launch is still to come I put a couple of photos of them up. They pretty much sum up for me (and I am sure many of the parents) what it’s all about. These guys were once greenies just like ours…look at them now; marvelous friendships and remarkable sailors.
To Book please contact Sarah on: 5975 7001 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Congratulations to Millie Grover on winning her first green race!
