Well, we didn’t make it last time, so we’ll try again to visit this great spot. There will be a race down from Manly on the Saturday, at the usual staggered start times. Anyone not wanting to race can cruise down and join us at Coochie-Mudlo Island. The return race will be on Sunday, with an earlier start time which will be decided to suit the wind.

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.

Coochie provides excellent shelter from most wind directions, but if there is a brisk southerly, the alternative destination will be St Helena Island, so keep an eye on the Facebook page. St Helena has a picnic shelter and toilets near the jetty.

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.
