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 the two-handed dinghy Mirror dinghy, Pacers and the popular trailer-sailer Hartley TS16. A small Bic fleet has also emerged.
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.
School holiday training (for school aged children) and All Ages training is run by the Club. Please go to the announcement tabs to see the training links available.
A Call For Volunteers
MYC needs volunteers to help run the morning and afternoon training/racing fixtures on Sundays. There are several roles that need to be filled to ensure an enjoyable day on the water, so please contact Club Secretary Steve Rose for details if you would like to assist the club.
