A small fleet of 29ers and International Cadets braved a fresh and cool Sunday afternoon on June 17 for the MHYC Winter Series for Centreboard Divisions.
Three races were completed on a short windward-leeward course between Grotto Point and Chinaman’s Beach, but the gusty winds and cold water took its toll, with the final race abandoned for the Cadets.
Max Giffney & Madeleine McLeay made a clean sweep of three 29er races. In the Cadets it was a win each to Zac Nisbet & Ethen McFarlane in Seaquence and Ben Harrington & Mia McFarlane in Piranha.

Middle Harbour Yacht Club is holding a Volunteer Information Night on Wednesday the 27th of June at 7pm. Anyone in the local community who is interested is invited to attend along with existing MHYC members and volunteers.
Like all community based clubs, MHYC relies upon a large group of volunteers to operate its sporting and social program. The roles for volunteers at a sailing club are numerous and diverse, suiting people with a wide range of skills and interests.
MHYC conducts a busy program of club racing and regattas through the year and volunteers are sought for both on-water and onshore roles. People with a sailing and boating background can bring some valuable skills, but there are also plenty of opportunities for novices to learn the sailing related skills. The club arranges a variety of accredited and non-accredited training to help support and develop its volunteers.
Some of the important on-water roles undertaken by volunteers include race management, time-keeping , flags and signals, recording finishes, course laying and safety boat crew. Onshore, volunteers can be equipment safety auditors, measurers, maintenance crew and on a range of committees. Our Sailability volunteers work both afloat and ashore.
Volunteers at MHYC are enabling a people of all ages and abilities to participate in competitive and recreational sailing and at the same time enjoy working and socialising with a team of like-minded people.
