Members Night Dinner – Friday 1st March 2024

We broke a record last Friday as our kitchen sold out! Who is coming for dinner this Friday? Hardly six weeks left in the sailing season, make the most of it!

 

As many of you maybe aware, two large branches from the tree along the walkway fell last Friday damaging the tender rack and many of the craft on it. The area has now been cleared and made safe, however several of the craft are unable to be identified by the Club. Please see the attached photo;  If you have had a tender stored on the rack and can safely remove it,  we ask you to please do so.
Until the rack is rebuilt you will need to store your tender at home or seek permission from the office via admin@mbsc.com.au to possibly store at the Club in an alternative spot.
Any unidentified damaged craft that remains in the location of the tender rack following the March long weekend TUES 5th MARCH 2024 will be removed and disposed of by the Club, in order that the Club can rebuild the rack.
 
Thank you in advance of support on this matter.”

The second half of the W.A. Tasar State Championships were conducted at Mounts Bay Sailing Club yesterday afternoon, Sunday 25th February. There were three races which were also part of the MBSC Short Course Series with windward leeward courses in Matilda Bay. The wind was initially a light easterly which rapidly strengthened, with most of the races held in a gusty 15 to 18 knots of easterly wind, which resulted is several capsizes. The leading boats were relatively close in all races which helped to provide interesting and enjoyable sailing. It was good to see some new sailors in the event which show continuing interest in our sailing and is good for the future of the Class.
Afterwards we celebrated the event at the MBSC Clubhouse and had the presentation of results and prizes by the MBSC Commodore Larry Smith and Tasar W.A. Vice President Dean Dixon. The prizes were sailing bags which created a lot of interest, and were created from re-cycled Tasar Dacron sails by local sail maker Brizo Sails.
State Champions are Lloyd Lissiman and Fiona Campbell, 2nd place went to Dean Dixon and Jim Blake, 3rd place was Trevor Date and Simon Olsen.
State Handicap Champions are Damien Smith and Lorelli Barnes-Smith, 2nd Place went to Denis Dixon and Zac Bruce, 3rd place was Kate Best and Geoff Munt.
Champion Club was Geographe Bay Sailing Club.
Thank you to everyone who took part in this enjoyable event, and a special thank you to Race Office Emily Jones for conducting both race days.

Last Sunday morning our L&D kids and parents took the Pacers out for a short race series. A blustery squall came through so we had to abandon after the first race but it was great fun while it lasted!
 

Never too old to celebrate your birthday at the Club! We celebrated a 100th birthday in the alfresco area with bubbles and cake! Discounts apply for midweek bookings, please contact events@mbsc.com.au 

** IMPORTANT **

PLEASE COLLECT YOUR LAWN AND TENDER RACK STICKERS FROM THE OFFICE.

If your watercraft remains unidentified by 20 September 2024 the Club may take action to dispose of it.

Thank you, MBSC Management
