Ken Stone, one of the 5 founders of MLMYC lost his long battle with cancer. Stonie served the Club with great distinction right from its start in 2004. As a sailor first at West Lakes with home built, A types and Marbleheads, he was a keen builder and mentor of the club founders when they adopted the ML45 design. He held the Club record for building the most boats. He served on the executive from the start and succeeded Bob Smith as President for a number of years until handing over the reins and taking up the responsibilities of Finance Director - he just loved handling the money, even more than those hot dougnuts. There would not be one Club member who didn't at some time seek his assistance, advice or a part from him. We will miss you mate. Our condolenses and very best wishes go to his wife Sandra and their family, all of whom have at some time been lakeside with him

TWILIGHT SAILING - PRSC / MLMYC Twilight Series - IT'S ON AGAIN
The twilight summer series for 2020/2021 hosted by Port River Sailing Club and ourselves will resume on 5th November to run through to 11th March 2021. It is of course subject to Covid 19 restrictions that apply such as social distancing which can easily be met. See the program organised by our RC Laser sailors under the Sailing / RC Lasers menu tab.
Visitors and all classes of boats will again be welcome. The Port River sailing Club has become a second home for us. Their facilities are wonderful and our great hosts make it a good time for all. The after sailing very casual dinner is an optional highlight we all look forward to.
Come and give it a try. There will always be someone to help launch and retrieve if you dont want to get your feet wet.
We welcome any sailors from other Clubs to join us.
