MHYC Development Squads

Optimist Green Fleet Squad
Time for your first Boat! how exciting. I can still remember scraping 12 layers of varnish off the floor of my first Sabot. Pretty sure everything was black and white back then...

Green fleet is where sailing really makes sense. We learn to love and care for our own boat and thrive in our learned independance, venturing far and testing our mettle on the race course.

Adventure Squad comes into the mix with the real world life skills of passage planning and navigation coming into play. An absolute favourite of the kids, it helps break up the dizzyness of sailing in circles on the race course.

Look out for Adventure Squad these Christmas Holidays and term 1 2022.
