Attached photo is of the first of our Winter Associates Raf and Mal Heale from Westernport Yacht Club, sailing the ex-Jaemie Wilson Mirror to win the Victorian Mirror Championships sailed at Williamstown at the end of April. Raf sailed Flying Ants at our club in the winter season in the late 1980’s and had a season sailing with Tom King culminting in their win in the World Mirror Chmpionships in 1991. Welcome Raf and Mal. We look forward to other Mirrors sailing on the Lake in winter.

* For members with boats in our club boatyard.
Due to the high usage of racks in the winter season, masts needs to be stored in a mast rack.  A number not in the rack of their boat have been moved to accomodate incoming boats.

  • Mast racks are currently available at the top level of Bay 15, 16, 20, 22, 29, 35, 40, 41, and 42 and in mast racks above walkways between aisles. 
  • Please write your sail number on the mast and spars.
  • If you cannot find your mast, please look for a bay in your row.
  • Additional mast racks are being considered.  Please stay informed.  

 Also a number of unmarked boat trolleys not on boats have been moved to upper racks. It is essential that trolleys are clearly marked with the members name and boat. At some stage later in the year we will be looking to dispose of abandoned trolleys.
