Easter Boating at BYS

Ever thought of taking your boat to the southern end of the bay over the Easter period but not sure where it can be safely moored…….well here’s your opportunity!

The southern waters of Port Phillip provide idyllic sailing conditions over Easter, with the prevailing southerlies providing flat water and fantastic yacht cruising and racing conditions, so if you are planning a trip, why not take the boat!

Sail Training Seminar - Guest Speakers

Megan started sailing competitively at the age of 12 on International Cadets at Sandringham YC.  After cadets I moved into 420s and the Europe dinghy. Claire learnt to sail a minnow at Blairgowrie YS, following which she sailed a Sabre but then moved into the more youth friendly laser class. After reaching an intermediate level, they both become members of the Victorian Youth Squad and their training program which we participated in for many years,
After moving out of junior classes they both joined the Youth Match Racing program at SYC. The program is run on the clubs 6 identical Beneteau 7.5s and was designed to act as a link between off the beach classes and keelboats. Match racing is different to fleet racing in that there are only 2 boats in a race. While the basics of sailing are the same, the rules, tactics and strategies are quite different. They have represented the club at state and national match racing events and have predominately raced in all girl teams. They now sail on J24's at SYC and enjoy being able to move around the boats trying different positions.
They both feel very privileged to have been taught how to sail by the sailing community and being out on the water has been a large part of both of their lives.  In an attempt to give back to the sport, they have both done coaching courses - Megan has done a lot of fleet racing coaching while Claire coached school teams racing for a number of years.
