GT " in Race Mode" on Magpie #947 winning the 2017 Australian Etchells Championships at RPAYC. Champion now two years in a row.

From The Commodore

Hi Team MYC
What a great night last Thursday was for the Harcourts Twilight Series, all of the 20/20 sailors were out in fine form!!!

A reminder to all of our Keel boat Skippers and crew that the boy's, Michael and Tom  who run you to your boats are junior volunteers earning a bit of pocket money while helping us out. The gold coin in the bucket is from EVERY PERSON who gets a ride, $1 each way isn't a big ask for the convenience of having access to your boats.

Congratulations this week to Graeme Taylor and crew winning the  2017 Australian Etchells Championships. Also Sophie Jackson and Ella Sharman 2nd Girls  in the 2017 420 Australian Youth Championships.

See you at the club and make the most of the Club Decks  during this fine weather.
