During the season which finishes in April we have racing at the club most Saturdays. Racing starts at 1.55pm but you need to get there earlier to rig up your boat and have a chat with the other sailors.
When you first start you will be in the Optimist B fleet and sail a shorter course. To help you get started and make sure you enjoy racing you will have a race coach. The coach will brief you before and after the race and follow and coach you around the course. The cost of this is included in your membership. If you have been hiring a club boat for Learn to Sail then you can also use it for racing but there are only 6 boats so get there early to secure one.
Monday night coaching
This is for Optimist B, Optimist A, P Class and Starlings.
The course runs from 4-7pm and will always be on, with classroom and fitness sessions if the weather is bad. There are Yachting NZ coaches who run this course which starts at the beginning of the season from Monday, the 20th of October. In the New Year the course will start again on 2 February for 8 sessions. Please note that spaces are limited on this course, so you need to book. The cost is $150 for the full season or $80 if you only sail attend for the second half of the season.
Wednesday Night Sailing
Runs from 4.30-6.30pm. This is for fun sailing and you need to have done Learn to Sail and be confident that you can handle your boat, without assistance, in the conditions on the day. The club provides one manned rescue boat in case of emergencies. There is no extra cost for this sailing.
We plan to have a sleepover at the club in February. We will confirm the date later in the year.
MYC Junior Regatta
On 31 January we have the MYC Junior Regatta. This is an all day affair with 3 races and everyone goes home with a prize. The reserve day is 1 February.
