On February 26, the 2023 Manly Combined Clubs (MCC) sailing season starts again and is open to anyone who wants to come out sailing.

We are a wide and varied group of sailors who enjoy getting out on the bay together in races that include courses for those who prefer to cruise and those who like to race. The races are jointly supported by MBTBC, RQYS, QCYC, MBBC, WMSC and TSCQ to create events to be enjoyed by everyone.

While many of us were chilling out and enjoying a restful break between Christmas and New Year, we know several of our regular sailors were competing in the Sydney Hobart yacht race.

Closer to home, the preparations are underway for the ASBA (Australian Sports Boat Association) National Titles hosted by MBTBC; they’re not as big as the keelboats, but they’re fast and great to watch so expect to see some awesome action out on the bay.

The Kingfisher Bay Night Series also has the next race on February 4, starting at 3pm off Mud Island. The race is approximately 30 nautical miles long and provides the opportunity to sail after dark, learning to read the lights on marker buoys as you navigate the course and experience sailing under the full moon.

The MCC sailing series is community-based, and we warmly welcome volunteers and support from the community to create success for all. We know that Darling Point Sailing School (DPSS) is looking for volunteers for January events.

Thank you to all who sailed in our 2022 series for the friendships made, and we look forward to a bigger and better 2023 season.
