Summer 19/20

Manly Harbour sailing Suspended unit further notice.

Hello All

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic affecting the world and the guidelines provided by the government, we are suspending all club sailing at Manly Harbour.

Majority of club members are in the vulnerable category or have contact with someone in the group.

The Manly Harbour venue has a high risk with public exposure, and so a decision has been made to suspend all club activities at Manly Harbour.

We also would like members to read the following and make an informed decision to whether they should expose themselves to other venues (Wynnum Pool on Tuesdays and Wynnum Jetty).

The nature of our sport leads competitors to a group, therefore, becoming closer than the recommended 1.5m.

The committee understands that members wish to continue to get out and sail but advises to follow the guideline and stay home if you're not well or remain 1.5m apart while participating (preferably seated to eliminate the risk of grouping).

WMRMYC Inc Summer Scratch Series RD 5 Manly Marina - 1st March 2020

With the Club Championship up for grabs, there was a solid turnout to grab hold of the trophy.

The gold coast trophy hunter made a rare appearance but struggled to find the recent form which has seen him atop the southern podium.

The high level of sportsmanship displayed recently continued with competitors completing penalty turns when required.

A decision made to rotate the RO and was well received also gave some chance for retribution.

The breeze was from a southerly direction oscillating to the east giving the stewards a hard time.

Close racing, all skippers were having their time in the spotlight.

The result was close, in third place John Gower, second place Tony Gray.

Well done by all skippers it was an enjoyable morning sailing.

Good to see our new member Gary McCarthy join us hope you enjoyed the local experience and commodore Mike unlucky with a broken radio.

Well what a great day we had with 14 boats on the water and a lovely breeze out of the north I was lucky enough to come straight out with 2 bullets tony grey had a slow start and finish but showed some good speed in the middle of the day if he only had a BLUE boat who know what would happen,

It’s amazing how good the pikanto goes in the dead flat water well done arco 95#nice to see Peter Kampe with another new boat I’m sure he will get it tuned over the next few weeks as it showed some form {that’s if he doesn’t build another one}   John McLachlan had the v5 going very well also, I here he has a secret coach now. Big thanks to jm for the results and to Dennis 123# for being RO.
