17th April 2016 - Tyros & Bowen Northway, New Year Fleet Race and Traditional New Year games.
The day started earlier than usual with fun & games on the lakeshore as we celebrated the New Year with the CMYC staff & their families by playing traditional games. The competition was evident in all the games which comprised lime & spoon race, three legged race, flour & sack race, blindfold clay pot smashing, egg throwing, bun eating, blindfold yoghurt race all rounded off with a tug of war between staff & members. This year the members tugged their way to victory after last year’s defeat! There were plenty of prizes to be won as well as gifts for the younger family members. Thanks to the committee & all who donated such generous prizes & gifts & for everyone’s support on the day in the running of and participation in the games.
8 boats took to the water after the morning’s lakeside action. There was a good wind to fill the sails of the 3 race series for the Tyros & Bowen Northway trophies. Trevor & Sarah sailed a spirited race on the heels of Anil & Michelle & won the Tyros Cup and although they were also in first position for the Bowen Northway this was awarded to Ernst who was in second place as no sailor was allowed to win both trophies. Anil & Michelle showed their dominance by winning the over the line fleet race.
