2019 Moreton Bay Classic Promo
By tscq, Dec 16 2018 06:07AM
2018 has been a busy and successful year for the TSCQ, and your committee has been working hard to make 2019 even better. We have scheduled a full program of club races to complement the MCC races, and they will all count towards the club championship, with your best ten results deciding your score. The updated Sailing Instructions explain the scoring and handicapping systems that will be used next year. Several cruises are also planned for those who are not so competitive.
Our first club race and cruise is in January from Sandgate, and the Moreton Bay Classic is in early March. Please check the club web site for upcoming events and use the on-line calendar to keep up to date with the program and any changes. The printed club calendar will be available in the new year. Keep an eye on the Facebook page as some members plan to do some cruising over the holiday period, and we would love you to join us. Refer to the MCC web site for details of their program.
Please talk to your committee and let us know if you have any concerns or ideas, to ensure we all enjoy sailing on our beautiful Moreton Bay as often as possible in 2019.

This trophy honours a much-loved former club member who enjoyed sailing to the Sand Hills. This year’s event is on Saturday 3 and Sunday 4 November, with the combined times for the two days used to decide the winner of the trophy. The Saturday race is from Manly to the Big Sand Hills on Moreton Island, with staggered start times commencing from 10:40 am at the Manly leads. Race briefing will be in the carpark near the public boat ramp just before 10:00 am. Any boats wishing to cruise over should consider starting before 10:30 am, but they can sail over in their own time. The course maps have been updated so please download the new versions from the Documents page on the club web site.
High tide at the Brisbane Bar on Saturday is at 6:08 pm (2.27m) and the high tide on Sunday morning is at 6:56 am (2.01m) which is slightly lower than the evening high tide, so make sure you are still floating at about 7:30 pm on Saturday evening if you want to get away Sunday morning. There will be an informal briefing after breakfast for those racing home, with an early race start. Cruisers can return at their leisure.
There are no facilities at the Sand Hills, just a lovely beach and the giant sand dunes. Be prepared to use the toilet on your boat or to go bush with a small shovel. Some refreshments will be provided by the club, but you should bring some drinks and nibbles for the usual get together. Folding chairs are optional. You can cook and eat on your boat, or on the beach. It is possible to camp behind the beach in a small tent if you wish. Hope to see lots of boats out for this popular weekender and to remember Susie.

The next club trophy race is the Geoff Wallace Memorial Trophy race at Wivenhoe Dam on Sunday 21 October, with a start at about 11 am from the Logan Complex boat ramp. Most boats will also be going for a cruise on Saturday afternoon. If you plan on camping in a tent for the weekend, sites 45-50 at Captain Logan Camp are recommended. Marty has booked site 46 and Mal has booked site 48. The others were still available for both Friday and Saturday nights as of October 1st. The sites are level, unpowered and overlook the inlet where we tie up our boats. The amenities block is nearby. If the weather is kind it should be a great weekend, both at the camp and on the water. The dam is currently at 70% which is much the same as for the last two years. BYO food, drinks, firewood and camping gear. There is a Seniors Card discount so mention it when you make your booking if you have one. Give Mal a call on 0418 105 208 if you have any questions.

At the general club meeting on Tuesday 19 June, the club constitution was amended by the Special Resolution as circulated to members previously. Membership renewals will therefore reflect the new membership categories, and the fees that were approved at this meeting. All members will soon receive an emailed notice inviting them to renew their membership for the coming financial year. Please select the appropriate class of membership on the renewal notice. You have the option to request an Australian Sailing number (formerly a Silver Card) for an additional fee. The overall changes to fees are minimal and still offer great value to members. Entry to the 2018 Manly Combined Club series is free for TSCQ Ordinary Members. Renewals are due from 1 July and should be paid by bank transfer as detailed on the renewal notice.

Manly Combined Clubs Series Race 1 is scheduled for 11th February 2018. TSCQ members can enter for FREE. Please ensure you have entered your boat for this series. TSCQ was well represented last year, let’s see if we can do the same this year.
What is the Manly combined club series?
During the racing season the Moreton Bay Trailer Boat Club hosts a series of passage races and sometimes a number of social races too. A number of those races (typically 14) make up the Manly Combined Clubs Series during the year between February and November.
Occasionally the fleet will race to a more distant location in the bay and stay overnight, racing back the next day and these weekends are highly popular due to the very social evenings!
The diversity of the fleet means there is a division for almost any type of sailing boat from fully-fledged racing machines to trailerable cruising boats and multi-hulls.
Join the fun.

This year’s program will be a little different to recent years. The Club Championship will be based on the Manly Combined Clubs race series, with the best 11 results counting from the 14 races. There will be no Aggregate competition. In addition to the Moreton Bay Classic, there will also be stand-alone club races for four trophies: Presidents Cup, Anniversary Cup, Geoff Wallace Memorial Trophy and Susie McCarthy Memorial Trophy. There will also be some fun races/cruises just aimed at having fun with nothing at stake. The 2018 Moreton Bay Classic is on 3-4 March, and documentation is now available on the web site.
You can find details of the 2018 program on the web site and in the 2018 Club Calendar, which is now available from Chop and Karen for $15 each. Get your order in before Christmas. Please ensure you download the updated 2018 Sailing Instructions from the Documents section on the web site. Course maps will be progressively updated so make sure you have the latest version before each club race.
Come along and enjoy another great year of sailing with TSCQ.

Hi all TSCQ members
At our meeting next Tuesday night, I will be presenting the attached draft programme for 2018 for discussion and hopefully finalisation. The Combined Club dates are all fixed and the TSCQ events are intended to fill the gaps. It is a very full program, but it is likely that some races will be cancelled due to the weather, although none were cancelled this year.
If you have any comments or suggestions, please come along to the meeting. Otherwise you can email them to me and I will present them on Tuesday night.
Look forward to some feedback.
