Latest Updates from MMYC

Winter Series and lockdown

Hello Sailors

With lockdown well and truly upon us, many people are asking the most important of questions (for a yacht club) ; WHEN ARE WE SAILING NEXT?

The answer is:  AS SOON AS WE CAN.   But not before  Sunday 3rd May.

The winter series opening day and breakfast is scheduled for 3rd May with the first race, being the handicapping race starting that afternoon.

Of course, we are planning this on the basis that Lockdown is over, Covid19 is history and fair winds await us.

Keep an eye on this page, your email and or the face book page for information and updates.  

Sailing instructions will be posted shortly.

Regards

 

Adam Yates
Commodore.

 

 

  

Cricket on the Bank/Close of Summer

Well, Summer events for MMYC are now over.

The finale was the AMMYCSCOTB(2), which was enjoyed by everyone who came.  There were 6 boats in attendance, Wizzard, Pork Chop, Geriatrix, General Jackson, Sophie Rose and Taihoma (?).  Because a crowd attracts a crowd, several stray boats joined in the park up.

The paying field emerged from the harbour with heaps of time for everyone to get a bat, bowl and general run around

With the shape of the bank, there was a nice eddy and deep water close to the shore which allowed everyone to hang nicely to their anchors.  This is certainly an event worth attending.

Congratulations to Dakota for picking up the Player of the day.

A noteworthy effort was put in by the grandson of Gary Bishell who came over from the UK to attend a wedding, but on the day, decided to come play cricket with us instead! 

 

 

 

Cricket on the Bank

This weekend (Saturday 14th March) will see the 2nd annual Mount Maunganui Yacht Club Summer Cricket on the Bank (2AMMYCSCOTB).

                     

The event kicks off (after a fashion) at 2.00pm.  The match is held on the sand bank which appears at low tide in the middle of the harbour between marks 13 and 9, at low tide (the lowest of the season).

Being low tide and with the steep channel cutting even boats with deep keels can “moor” alongside the playing field.

Come along, bring some food and refreshments, shoes (essential) and join in the fun.

This is a fun afternoon, in the most novel of settings.  If you would like to join in and don’t have transport, feel free to contact the club to organise a ride.
