The next club sailing event is the Geoff Wallace race from Victoria Point to Karragarra Island and back on Sunday 28 June. Geoff (Marty’s dad) was a past President, and a very active member from 1969 to 1992.

For Geoff the TSCQ was about having fun and enjoying the companionship as much (or more than) winning races. For this race we stop at Karragarra Island for lunch and then resume the race back. If you like, bring something tasty to share at lunchtime.

The course will be decided at around 10 am as we launch at the Victoria Point ramp but is usually either clockwise or anticlockwise around Macleay, Lamb and Snipe Islands. There will be a staggered start at the red buoy off Coochie with the first boats going at 10.40 am. Please take your own time at the first finish at the red beacon off Karragarra and pull into the sandy beach nearby.

There are picnic tables and public toilets here. Non club members and cruisers are welcome to join us for what is a very social event.

It’s a few years since the club had a weekender to Coochie Mudlo Island, so it’s time to revisit this great spot. There will be a race down from Manly on Saturday, at the usual staggered start times. Anyone not wanting to race can cruise down and join us at Coochie.

We will overnight off the beach in front of the picnic shelter, which is on the south side of the island about 100 metres west of the barge ramp. Toilets, cold showers and a café are a short walk away near the jetty. Bring a barbecue for dinner or buy fish and chips from the café.

Sunday and Monday are cruising to suit the weather and individual preferences, returning to Manly whenever you like. Coochie provides excellent shelter from most wind directions, but if there is a brisk southerly, we may need to change the destination, so keep an eye on the Facebook page.

For normal club races, the nominal start time is given as 11.00 am. Start times in non-MCC events will usually be staggered to try to get the fleet to finish closer together. The faster boats will try to catch the slower boats with the whole fleet usually staying within sight of each other. The lower handicap boats go first and the faster boats go last as shown below:

PBH up to 0.650 – 10.40 am

PBH from 0.651 to 0.700 – 10.50 am

PBH from 0.701 to 0.750 – 11.00 am

PBH more than 0.750 – 11.10 am

This can of course be amended by the starter of the day, depending on the number of boats. For overnight races, the starting times for the return trip will usually be brought forward, but the groups will be the same. It is the skipper’s responsibility to be ready to start at the designated time, and allowances for a late start will only be made due to circumstances beyond the skipper’s control. Boats that start more than 10 minutes late and perform poorly will not have their handicap adjusted.

You can check your usual staggered start time by referring to the “Stag Start” column in the overall race results sheet on the club web site. The PBH column in the overall results sheet was the boat’s PBH at the start of the race year. To check your latest PBH, you need to refer to the results for your most recent race.

Mal tried out some new legs for Miramare at the weekend, and don't they look great?!

The Suzie McCarthy Memorial Trophy weekend saw boats pulling out at the start on Saturday due to the strong northerly winds which would have made the trip to the Sand Hills a long and wet slog. A few boats decided to head south for the weekend ultimately ending up at Canaipa. Miramare decided to spend the night at Coochiemudlo instead, which is where the photos were taken.

This trophy honours a much loved former club member who enjoyed sailing to the Sandhills. This year’s event is on Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 November, with the combined times for the two days used to decide the winner of the trophy. The inaugural winner in 2012 was Evergreen. Last year’s event was cancelled due to strong winds.

The Saturday race is from Manly to the Big Sandhills on Moreton Island, with staggered start times commencing from 10.40am at the Manly leads. Race briefing will be in the carpark near the public boat ramp just before 10am. Any boats wishing to cruise over should consider starting before 10.30am, but they can sail over in their own time.

We will be arriving at Moreton Island on a low tide so be prepared to move closer to the beach as the tide comes in (low tide at about 3.30pm). The high tide on Sunday morning at about 9:45am is higher than the evening high tide, so getting off the beach shouldn't be a problem.

Sunday’s race back will start between 9.30am and 10am when all boats are ready, as long as there is sufficient wind at this time. There will be an informal briefing after breakfast. Cruisers can return at their leisure.

There are no facilities at the Sandhills, 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.
