MHYC has a proud tradition of developing young sailors, culminating in the success of Nathan Wilmot and Malcolm Page winning Gold in the 470 Men's at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. MHYC is now also the home base for the Australian Sailing Team (AST), with all of the recent Olympians training and based out of the club. This has helped the AST have their best ever result at an Olympics with local sailor Malcolm Page becoming the most successful 470 sailors in the world, with a second Gold medal at the 2012 London Olympic Games.
More recently, the Australian Sailing Team also brought home medals from the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, including; one Gold medal (Tom Burton) and three Silver medals (Lisa Darmanin/Jason Waterhouse; Iain Jensen/Nathan Outteridge; plus, Will Ryan/Mat Belcher). Additionally, at the 2016 Rio Paralympic Games, the Australian Paralympic Sailing team also brought home medals in each of Paralympic Sailing Classes, including two Gold medals and one Silver medal.
