Wednesday 15th January

Unfortunately due to thunder storms in the area we felt is was best to err on the side of caution and cancel the madness last Wednesday.  Initial reports from our first round of using the TES Sign On procedure were all positive so if you are planning to do any of the Midweek Madness Races please make sure you register.

Chirping Bird Female Helm Race / Series  

Congratulations to: 

1st Em Dee Bette Pearson
2nd Y Knot Linda Wooley
3rd D'etente Margaret Churcher

It wasn't quite the weather we were hoping to have for our Female Helm Race but we did have 10boats head to the start line, 7 of which had a female helm.  There were a few retirements but well done to all those that went out and gave it a go. Thank you also to Rod Smallman and Chirping Bird Wines for sponsoring this series.

It was very pleasing to see the eight Safety Beach yachts heading up to Mornington early on Saturday morning for the 10:00H start time.  From all reports everyone thoroughly enjoyed the race and the opportunity to sail in the bigger fleet with around 30boats competing.  We certainly hope to include this race in our 2020-21 season program.  Big thanks to our neighbouring club Mornington YC for inviting our yachts to participate in this race which was very well organised and run.  The complete MYC Results can be viewed at Hovell Pile Results
