I can't believe how quickly we have reached Christmas - It just seems like last weekend that our season opened! I hope you all have been enjoying what M.Y.C. offer both on and off the water.
For the first season in many I can't seem to put a Saturday together, but have very much enjoyed the few Thursdays that I and my girls have dragged Smile 'n Wave out of the yard to enjoy what we all love...Sailing.
It was terrific to see so many new faces on the deck last Thursday, to be able to sail into the landing with the Ronstan band playing with the deck buzzing is truly a Mornington experience.
It seems our fleet numbers have been ok, but I know they will ramp up even more after Christmas.
Good luck to all competing both in Ocean Races or National Championships over this Christmas period.
I have unfortunately had to devote considerable time to both business and family over the last few weeks, I hope that my absence was noted.
I have really appreciated the efforts made by my fellow Committee members and our hard working office staff in keeping our great club trimmed and sailing on the right tack.
I am heading down to the Mornington East Y.C. with my family for a couple of weeks and am looking forward to the 2nd half of our season, especially the 70th season celebrations. The amount of work being put into this is amazing and I know you will all enjoy both the open weekend and the Soiree. I know I will. To get the discounted ticket price of $99 for the soiree which includes entertainment, food and alcohol for the evening don't forget to book by the 30th of December.
I would like to wish you all a great Christmas & a Safe New Year,
Go Team MYC competing over the Christmas & New Year break!!! Graeme Alexander
