The next club race is the Geoff Wallace Memorial Trophy race at Wivenhoe Dam on Sunday 27 October, with a start at about 11 am from the Logan Complex boat ramp. The race remembers Geoff (Marty’s dad) who was a past President, and a very active member from 1969 to 1992. For Geoff, the TSCQ was about having fun and enjoying companionship as much (or more than) winning races. Some boats will also be going for a cruise on Saturday afternoon.
If you plan on camping in a tent for the weekend, sites 45-56 at Captain Logan Camp Ground are recommended. Marty has booked site 57 and Dave has booked site 46. 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 51% which is a little lower than for the last few years, but there is still plenty of water at the ramp and for sailing. 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. Any trailer sailer is welcome to join us for the weekend. Give Mal a call on 0418 105 208 if you have any questions.

This annual event will be held at MBTBC at Manly on Saturday 27 July from 6:30 pm. The meeting will be brief, but it is important as we need to elect a new committee to keep the club going for another year. Most of the outgoing committee are available for re-election, but some would be happy to stand down and new blood is always welcome. Please consider helping in one of the many roles available. The duties are not onerous and there is plenty of experience available if needed. But most importantly, come along and show your support for the club and enjoy a great night out with good company. Please call Mal on 0418 105 208 to book.

Our first social event for the year will be the traditional ladies’ night dinner to thank our sailing and non-sailing partners for their support and tolerance of our on-water activities. Please join us for a pleasant evening on the deck at the MBTBC at Manly from 6:00 pm on Saturday 25 May. The club will contribute $25 towards the cost of the meal for each lady. Please contact me by phone or text on 0418 105 208 no later than Tuesday 21 May to book so I can advise numbers to MBTBC. Hope to see you all there. Mal Dorricott (President)

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 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.

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.
