ATTENTION ALL MMYC SAILORS. VERY IMPORTANT NOTICE.
This season the Club is embracing a significant advancement in the Top Yacht Soring System. Top Yacht is our scoring and race management software. This will allow us to have On Water Finishes, Electronic Signing On and other significant improvements.
At first, establishing the new system may seem a little onerous to members but once up and running will be much simpler.
WE WOULD BE GRATEFUL IF ALL MEMBERS COULD REGISTER AS BELOW AS SOON AS POSSIBLE EVEN IF NOT PLANNING ON TAKING PART IN THE INITIAL SERIES
ALL SAILORS need to register with the Top Yacht Entry System, TES, before they can race. The initial registration will be for the Icebreaker Series. It does not matter if you will not be sailing in that series as it is a means to place your details into the Top Yacht TES Register

Mt.Martha Yacht Club is now registered for the Guiness world record attempt for the largest single sailing regatta attempt in the world in "Bart's Bash".
For those that don't know Andrew (Bart) tragically died during training for the last America's Cup when the AC72 catamaran he was crewing on capsized trapping him underwater. "Bart's Bash" is regatta that has been set up by his foundation as one of its activities that gains its inspiration from "Bart's" attitude to life.

Last Saturday Kaye Young discovered her 2.4 m kayak had been stolen and removed through a hole cut in the fence behind the Tin Shed that houses our training inflatable and opti sails.
It is several years since we have had a similar theft and this shows how vulnerable we are to theft particularly of small mobile items.
Our yard is under surveillance from Coastcom by way of Patrols however it is very difficult to protect our assets from someone who is brazen enough to cut through the fence.
Please remember that it is your responsibility to name, secure and insure your items when you leave them in the yard.
If anyone has a spare 2.4m or thereabouts kayak they are not using please let Kay know.
