In order to help boost dinghy sailing activity at MHYC, hard stand and rack storage arrangements have recently been reviewed.
A new license agreement has been developed and the storage rates updated. Preferred storage locations will be allocated in favour of those boats which are most active.
All boats which have not lodged an application and arranged payment will need to be removed by the end of June.

The 2017-2018 Sailing Season is approaching fast.
All yachts racing in MHYC events in the coming season are required to have successfully completed a safety audit for the category of races they are entering and the new Australian Sailing Special Regulations have come in to force as of July 1.
MHYC has a capable team of accredited auditors who have worked hard through our Get Checked weekend in June and are now making themselves available to conduct further audits. Please note that safety audits conducted outside of the Get Checked weekend attract service fees ($50 for Categories 1-2, $30 for Categories 3-4 and $20 for Categories 5-7).
The draft of MHYC's 2017-2018 Sailing Program has been released pending publication of the new Sailing Handbook.
To assist members planning for the coming season, the draft version is available for download on this page in both a PDF and Excel Spreadsheet version. The spreadsheet can be filtered to obtain a list of dates forspecific events or classes etc.
The Sailing Handbook, which includes the 2017-2018 Notice of Race and Sailing Instructions for the principal series, is due to be published by Opening Day on September 2.
