Some of our old (and young) RPP FM ‘salties’ celebrated the Mornington Yacht Club’s 2016 Victorian Junior & Youth Championships, the biggest youth sailing event in Victoria.
The regatta at the Yacht Club was held over the weekend with races commencing at 12.30pm Saturday and 10.30am Sunday.
RPP FM presenters Bob Phillips and Brodie Goozee covered the exciting event on Sunday with a live Outside Broadcast beginning with the Late, Late Brekky Show at 9am.
The boys interviewed yacht club officials, Olympic gold medalists in sailing and young competitors in Sunday’s racing.
Over the years Club members have won around twenty State and five National Titles and one World Championship. The Club has also hosted several State, National and one World championship. Not all the sailing at Mornington is ultra competitive as the Club runs a hugely popular Thursday evening twilight series in summer.
With humble beginnings in 1946 when eleven local boating enthusiasts set up the club, leasing an ex Army hut close to the pier from the council, this vibrant club now has 750 members.
