Mornington Yacht Club (MYC) is directly adjacent to parks and foreshore areas used extensively by the public. It is therefore essential that we abide by the strict EPA regulations controlling air and water pollution.
Rising Victoria Sailing star and MYC member Nick Sharman has been offered a place in the upcoming Club VIODA / YV Scholarship programme.
This is great initiative that will support past Opti sailors, and current Opti instructors, in their personal development and enable them to give back to a class they have proven commitment to. The purpose of the Scholarship is to offer the opportunity to become a Qualified Yachting Australia Club Coach.
• Yachting Australia Club Coaches Qualification
• Powerboat Handling / Safety Boat Qualification (if not already held)
• Senior First Aid Certificate (if not already held)
• SUPPORT VIODA and YV coaching needs as a priority, this is in particular around major VIODA/YV events.
• SUPPORT MYC in their club activities to assist in developing their Optimist fleet in size and quality
