MCYS Open Day 2023

The weather was not the friendliest for the 2023 MCYS Open Day, with the Sail Past needing to be cancelled for members’ safety. We had very good interest this year from owners both sail and power which bodes well for next year!

First off I would like to start with some well-deserved THANK YOUs:

Thank you to the Social Committee

The social committee led by VC Michelle Brien and ably assisted by Kathleen Steele, Vivien Carroll, Marilyn Wilson and Lizzy Shanley. Lizzy as the MCYS Secretary, has completed a power of work over this 4 months since taking office – I know the amount of work that goes into the Secretary role doing that over 2 clubs and we are very lucky to have Lizzy in the Secretary role.

Thank you to Rear Commodore & Immediate Past Commodore John Hall

As inaugural Commodore, John took the helm of MCYS from inception and has done an outstanding job leading the club and still does today in his role as RCS and leading our Clubhouse development initiative.

Thank you to the MCYS General Committee

We have a very hard-working Social Committee as I’ve mentioned but the General Committee has also been outstanding this year

  • Rear Commodore Power – Geoff Steele and his subcommittee have done a power of work and bringing the Power on par with Sail and Social which is great to see
  • Pam Hall – Treasurer – nearly all members had renewed their membership within 30 days this year and the accounts are ship shape
  • Bill Wilson – Merchandise – Bill has made our merchandise top shelf for many years and it represents our club as it’s quality and professional
  • Clare Murphy & Rex Over for bringing their commercial expertise to our GC

Thank you to the MCYS Sponsors

  • Battery World Mornington – Brad & Lynda
    Their reputation for service in MC is outstanding and from a standing start they’ve built a vibrant business on the peninsula
  • Moneta Super – Russell & Sue
    Moneta Super provides premium SMSF administration services for your Self-Managed Superannuation – I encourage all members with SMSF to give them a call
  • Better Estate Agents – James Martin
    I used James to sell my berth in Hidden Harbour and other members have used James and they are very happy with his results.

Thank you to Cindy Waters

Thank you to the Coast Guard (VF6) Safety Beach

Thank you to Sara Dailey, Billee & John Amsden for volunteering to lead in the fleet again in 2023. VF6 have been a fantastic supporter of MCYS through every Open Day. We are very fortunate to have VF6 so close to our club.

Thank you to John Gordon
