WELCOME to the official website of the Maylands Yacht Club (MYC) located on the Swan River in Perth, Western Australia. This website allows you to keep up to date with the latest club news, fixtures and results during our sailing season.
The clubhouse is on the Swan River foreshore, less than 5km from the Perth CBD and about 25km upriver from the port city of Fremantle. We sail a variety of classes, from the single-handed Laser and Sabre, to a number of two-handed dinghies including Mirrors, Pacers and 125s, and the popular trailer-sailer Hartley TS16.
Juniors also have the opportunity to try their hand at sailing the ever-popular Mirror, an ideal training dinghy, plus the single-handed Minnow.
Sailing in our Summer Series takes place on Sundays from October through to April. Racing commences at 2pm, while Sunday morning is reserved for training. A Winter Series is held from May to September on the first Sunday of each month, with the first of two short races starting at 1pm. In addition, a number of social events are held throughout the year.
Conditions are typically flat water and varying breezes, with stronger winds during the summer months. Gusts and wind shifts are a good test of helmsmanship, and skill and tactics often win out over straight-line speed.

MIRROR DINGHY WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS 2019
Woollahra Sailing Club, Rose Bay, Sydney
Congratulations to the skippers and crew who flew the flag for Maylands Yacht Club in the Mirror Worlds on Sydney Harbour. Conditions ranged from light to fresh, to a southerly buster on the final day (Saturday, January 5). Updated provisional results show that out of 59 starters after nine races, our MYC trio stuck together! Rolna Stoeger and Doug Pianta finished 46th with a best finish of 24th, Duke and Glenn Secco finished 47th (best 30th) and Paul and Hannah Cornwell came in at 48th (best 24th).
PROVISIONAL WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS RESULTS:
Mirror Sailing New South Wales’ Facebook page posted this classic shot of Paul and Hannah in Blackadder on a screaming reach. A day earlier, in Race 1, the boat was holed in a collision but overnight repairs did the trick.
Meanwhile, Duke Secco was given special mention for his outstanding effort.
