From The Commodore

Hi Everyone,

Happy Chinese Year of the Rooster!

Thanks to all those that made the Hobsons Bay Yacht Club members feel so welcome at our club on Saturday. Especially John Guest, Kerry Larder, Di Lynch, Jan Alexander and Steve Bardsley. The HBYC Mornington Cup will only  continue to grow thanks to such friendly hospitality. 

Australia Day fireworks was again really special on the MYC Deck and it was really pleasing to hear so many take advantage  and be at your  club on such a beautiful night.

The best weather, sailing and events are yet to come starting this Friday with the Ladies Monthly Luncheon. The ladies Lunch is always a  great way to meet fellow members.


Finally I will mention the importance of membership and abiding by our licencing rules. Could you please sign in all visitors to the club. The club and all clubs around the bay are focussing this year on addressing the non-member culture in our sport

See you at the club soon, Sheryl Schumacher 

The Rocks Thursday Twilight Menu:

Paella $24
Chicken Parma and Chips. $24
