General Meeting April 4th
Many of us have, and are still, following the high adventure and misadventures of Shane Freeman.
SHANE IS BACK ON APRIL 4 TO DISCUSS THE EVENTUAL VOYAGE HE TOLD US ABOUT LAST DECEMBER.
|Our summer racing season is drawing to a close with just a few more races left. Sunday saw the running of our last summer champagne passage race - again sponsored by Greg Power and his crew on board Quiksilver.|
The Club ran the inaugural Ross White Cup nav rally (In honor of our past member Ross White who was Club secretary for 33 years and a club member for 74... so just think about that) on Sunday the 26th of February and it turned out to be a great day for everyone and an amazing final result.
Fifteen Young Men
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.
|On Saturday we held the 22nd running of the Longbeach Passage Race which included the 2nd heat of the Longbeach Challenge competition between Carrum Sailing Club and MMYC.
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.
|Here's the latest news from solo sailor Shane Freeman. He's phoned in a report via Sat Phone following a week of gales and storms that he's been sailing through in the Southern Ocean.||
