VDC – Revised Date

The 20th & 21st November is now the new date for the Vic Dinghy Champs (VDC) to be conducted at the Mordialloc Sailing Club.

The uncertainty of the impact of COVID-19 on this regatta has forced the club, along with AS, to give the situation a chance to improve and lift restrictions by this new date.

Please refer to our web site and links to information on this regatta at:



52nd Winter Series UPDATE

The club has decided to also cancel racing for Sunday 15th August, additional to Sun 8th August.

This delay is to ensure safety first for competitors and that the club will be in full operation by the new date for racing of 22nd August

Some of the tasks required are: Computers reinstalled and back online, power connections, patrol boat readiness and the boat storage fencing etc.
New Dates – COVID-19 Dependent

2021 Winter Series, A slight hiccup

With Mordialloc’s 52nd Winter series racing raring to go, a minor hitch has caused a slight delay in completing the refurbishment activities at the club and thus approval for use has been delayed for a few days.

The club feels it prudent to cancelled racing on Sunday 1st August ONLY to ensure safety first and then everything will be in readiness for Sunday 8th August and business as usual….we hope.

Junior Endeavour Trophy – Misplaced

All trophies are now at the engravers for this year’s winners. However we have misplaced the Junior Endeavour award which is a board with gold edged labels showing each years’ winner.

If it is found please contact:

Peter White



Stay tuned for details to come shortly.

A variety of merchandise will be available on the night.

In addition, the recently published novel ‘Those Treasured Years’ which is based on the true story of the MSC from 1946 to 1972, will be available for sale at $30. Proceeds will go to the Junior development programs, Sailability and any similar efforts.

This novel brings to life, the personal and emotional aspects of the members who went before us and whom without their efforts, this club would not exist today.

All club members should be eager to read a novel about their own sports club to find out how we got to where we are today.

If you want to know what Permissive Occupancy is, then you need to buy the book.

If you want to know what land reclamation is, then you need to buy the book.
If you want to know how beach erosion affected the club and why the rock wall was built, then you need to buy the book.

If you want to contribute to the club financially, then the purchase of the book(s) will go a long way towards that whilst also receiving your own book.

History Books II, III, IV will also be available on the night.


EARLIER start time for Saturday 27th March

TO ALL MEMBERS – This is to advise that this Saturday’s racing (27th March) will commence ONE HOUR EARLIER at 1:00 pm (was 2:00 pm) due to the 75th dinner that starts at 7:00 pm.

Update: LBG Regatta – Sunday 21st March


Update: The LBG Regatta cup is mainly based on the number of entrants on the day and so far MSC is doing well with 10 entrants. only headed by BYC on 11 entries..

This is a great effort by club members BUT we need more registrations to keep ahead of BYC. So Sharpie crews, Lasers, and even Open skiffs, please see if you can attend. It will be like any other sailing day, except it will be at BYC on Sunday.

LBG is only a relative new concept that it is hoped will provide benefits to all clubs.

We have a great opportunity to sail against other sailors from other classes all the way from Frankston to Beaurmaris (Long Beach Group of clubs (LBG).

It would be terrific to have bragging rights for the next 12 months by winning the LBG Regatta. All we have to do is be there in numbers and sail, to win the coveted trophy which currently is head by Frankston.

So how do we do that?

Instead of sailing on Saturday, we sail on Sunday at Beaurmaris which is only a few minutes down the road. It’s only a small adjustment in your weekend routine to bring

We are asking all club members to put in the effort and turn up at Beaurmaris, This Sunday coming 21st March.

We want to be a strong club, well, here is the chance to show it.

Entry can be found on their web site. It’s easy to enter and its free.
