The Simply Fun MYC Team of Cheryl and Phil Coombs, Cameron Mckenzie , Stuart Schafer prior to starting the Sydney to Hobart.   A fantastic 38th on Line Honours  and 4th on IRC in their Division.

From The Commodore

Happy New Year Everyone,

I am really looking forward to 2017 and it has already been a great start with many of our Team MYC sailors doing so well currently at National events. Well done to all and good luck to those still competing.

At the December Committee Meeting we said farewell to Greg Sharman who has resigned due to work load and time constraints. We sincerely thank Greg for his enormous contribution on the committee since 2013. Greg has generously offered to continue to volunteer at the club in whatever capacity. I hope Greg now has more time to sail and support Sarah, Nick and Ella with their endeavors. Greg's position will not be replaced as under  the new constitution the committee quota is 11 members (previously 12) and the committee has a full quota.

January is a great month of sailing with our regular Thursday twilight, Aggregate and Championship series plus Lady Skippers 15 Jan and the Hobsons Bay Race 28 Jan.

See you at the club, Sheryl
