Fifteen Young Men

February 19, 2017
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.

Longbeach Challenge Report

February 13, 2017
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.
