2017 Victorian Couta Boat Championships @ Mornington

From The Commodore

Hi Everyone,
I had the wonderful experience of volunteering in the tower with Ian Robertson and Jennifer Roep on Sunday for the 2017 Victorian Couta Boat Championships.  I can only commend the Couta Boat Sailors for their cooperation and thank them for their effort to sail to Mornington on the Saturday and for the one race on the Sunday  in tricky conditions. I would also like to thank the other 15 or so race volunteers on the water and in the Tower on the Saturday and Sunday.

Our Team MYC were spread around on the long weekend of Vic championships with some excellent results:

  • Etchells @ RBYC 2nd Overall - Graeme Taylor

  • Optimists@ RGYC 1st  Intermediate - Amelia Evenden

  • Marley Pt Trailables @ LWYC  3rd  - Pipalini , Mitch Bayliss

  • 420's @ SSCBC  2nd Female Sophie Jackson & L.Thompson, 1st Female U16 Matilda & Lily Richardson.1st Mixed Alex Ferguson and Stephanie Lee 

  • Couta Boats @ MYC -  2nd Line Honours  Mal Hart

Congratulations to all the others that  were competing.

This week we continue to be making the most of this late Autumn Summer with Twilight Sailing, Friday Fun, Weekend sailing,  the  Business lunch  on Friday and next Monday the Scotchman's Hill Winery Tour.
See you at the club soon, Sheryl Schumacher
