Training for Adults and Juniors
Since the mid-1940s MYC has developed a rich history of producing State, National and International champions. This tradition of sailing development will continue through the training program, which is designed for people who want to learn to sail so they can race or just have fun on boats with family and friends.
The training program is open to all age groups - for beginners and those who want to brush up on their skills.
The training fleet has been improved with the purchase and upgrade of Mirrors, a significant dinghy class in Western Australia. They're double-handed and ideal for learning to sail for youth/adult/child combinations.
Training is held between 10am and noon on Sundays, starting on October 14, 2018. Please be there at 9:30am to assist with rigging the club boats.
We welcome the assistance of all parents. For example, parents may like to help as a support boat driver, with junior training, or in the canteen.
To enrol in the training program phone Ken Patterson on 0402 243 351
or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once you feel competent in managing a small sailing boat, a new dimension of fun awaits you.
You do not need to be an expert to begin racing. The handicap system of scoring makes it possible for
less-experienced sailors to win a race. Racing means learning and improving skill levels.
Racing begins at 2pm on Sundays. Most events are finished by 4pm and a social get-together is then followed by a short presentation ceremony held about 5.30pm to recognise placegetters in each fleet.
