FIFTEEN YOUNG MEN – THE TRAGEDY
GENERAL MEETING MARCH 7. 7.30PM.
Paul Kennedy is the author of the book and will be visiting us to discuss this sad but interesting tale.
Fifteen Young Men is the true story of a doomed adventure.
It was a maritime tragedy that unfolded one sad, dark hour at a time. A cold, cruelly blustery night revealing – with agonizing slowness – that fifteen young men of the Mornington Football Club would never make it home. As dawn broke and families began to mourn, a nation was to learn the full extent of one of the world’s worst sporting disasters.
Come along on the night and hear the story. Food and Drinks served on the night.

The 1st heat was held last November at Carrum.  MMYC won that heat so coming into the weekend MMYC was in a great position to retain the Longbeach trophy.

Over the last couple of years, our family has done a couple of Docklands trips and spent some time on the Gippsland lakes.  For a while we have been keen to explore some other parts of Port Phillip Bay.  This Australia Day weekend we managed to get a long weekend to align with some good weather and good winds and took the opportunity to sail across to Queenscliff.
