Commodore’s Report By Danny Pearsall “Canaipa” Can-Teen with Bob White at the helm was a great event. His crew, Alexis McCarthy and personal friend put on a great day and it was a great event. We met the teenagers from the program and we listened to their stories which made me think that our own problems and challenges are very small and insignificant by comparison. I believe the Club should get more involved in this event, perhaps making it an annual feature on our calendar. The sailors put up a good show in supplying boats for the day in addition to a power boat acting as safety vessel. I would also like to thank all the skippers for giving so generously of their time and boats. Bob I congratulate you on your fantastic effort and such a successful day. In case you were not aware the new Club Patio Area cover is up. The 16 year old patio roof structure was de-laminating badly and needed to be replaced, so "stand-in" Grounds Chairman, Geoff Rudd arranged for the replacement of the new roof. Thanks a lot Geoff, it looks great. The security gate wheels collapsed recently. The company we contacted to repair it did not show up after promising to do so. The wheels have since been repaired by another contractor and the motor will also be given a service check. We will continue to arrange for a security guard from 6pm to 6am to protect the property of our members until the gate is fully operational again.

Our Vice Commodore, Sharon Boyle has found employment in WA and I wish her all the best in her new venture. As well as taking on the position of Vice Commodore, Sharon took on the role of Sailing Chairman and also the organiser of the Lady Skippers Race. Thanks for all your efforts Sharon, it is appreciated & we wish you well in the future. I want to thank Alexis McCarthy for taking over the organisation of the Lady Skippers Race. Alexis is the third person to take over this event so I would like to thank her for her efforts, it is much appreciated. On Thursday 11 July there is a pre-race briefing, details of which have been sent out to previous skippers. The Lady Skippers Race is on 21st July, so be sure to come down to the Club to support the sponsor, the boats and their crews. The St. Helena Race weekend is creeping up on us quickly. Because we have no Sailing Chairman in July, I will call on the Committee to manage the organisation for this event. There have been a lot of offers to volunteer to do small parts but the overall organisation is very important. If you would like to assist please give the office a call and leave your name and phone number. Keep those burgees flying! See you on the water

Morning Tea Visit The Club recently hosted some residents of the Prince Willem Alexander Retirement Village for a morning tea at our marina. Although the day began with light rain, things cleared up to allow three maxis taxis full of residents to join us for the morning tea and and a little tour of the grounds. Trailer wheels were swapped for wheel chairs and a great morning was had by all.

Marina Media By Pamela Pavey - Marina Manager for Marina Board

Definitely a bit of a chill in the air these mornings - “Brisk” for the energetic walkers along the Manly Esplanade but just plain “COLD” for the rest of us. We have been watching the boat storage structure being built at East Coast Marina and now that the sides seem finished – it appears to resemble musical notes – all shiny silver glinting in the sun. The roof is still to come so we will keep our film in the camera until it is finished. It will no doubt be a good service for boats needing this type of storage. At least the rains we have had recently have more than filled all the water tanks and saved us fussing over the gardens. Work on the Grey Trolley slipway area, that has been in the pipeline for many months, has finally started and very soon a drainage problem will be cured. Our new Slipway Chairman – Merv Stevenson – has been in discussion with us in this regard, and he has approved of the manner in which it is being handled. You know the story “the sky is falling” - well not quite with us – it was just the roof in the Ladies Vanity Area - had seen better days and the “Roof started to fall”, and “Chicken Little” was nowhere to be seen! This prompted us to do some maintenance on all the Marina toilet/ shower areas – including new roof section; new flyscreens; all ceilings painted and some improved lighting. One person has noticed and given us a “Thank You”. Just in time for the Lady Skippers Race. One joy for winter is to be able to see the wonderful pallete of colour with the sunrise and sunsets – worth a walk down the Esplanade early morning – (or sneak the car out and drive down). Finish off with a breakfast at one of the local coffee-shops – I might see you there. Page 12

July - August I 2013


Club Hardstand Area - Reminder It has been brought to our attention that boats on the Club Hardstand area need checking by the owners. Also there are several items accumulating such as mud guards with springs, axle and spare tyres etc. These need to be removed immediately. This is not a storage area for boat “spares”. It is a trailer parking area only. We would appreciate it if the following items could be checked on EVERY boat and trailer asap – • Proper blocks to be placed under all trailer jockey wheels; • All trailer tyres need to be properly inflated to the correct pressure; • Tie downs need to be in place at all times and tightened correctly; • Clearance between the stern of the boat and the fence is to be 1 metre; • NO items to be stored along fence line under any circumstances. Thank you for your attention. Management Committee

?? Nautilus Marine Lady Skippers Race Lady Skippers 21 July & the colour is PINK! WMYC will once again host the annual Nautilus Marine Lady Skippers Race on 21 July 2013. This year's charity is the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF). Nautilus Marine has kindly agreed to sponsor this signature event again this year. The generous donation from Nautilus Marine allows us to run this signature event so that we can donate all race entry fees to NBCF. This race is about the skill we have and are developing as sailors and skippers. This is the annual and high profile opportunity for our women sailors to demonstrate that they can handle the wide variety of conditions that Moreton Bay can provide. There was a very high level of skill and determination

shown in last year’s race where gusts of up to 42 knots were recorded and only two boats were DNF. Building on the success of last year’s event WMYC has run a Women on Water Sailing (WOWs) series, where we have had short guest lectures from Sally Turner – from Ultimate Sails. There has been a series of races that will culminate in the Nautilus Marine Lady Skippers Race on 21 July. Several of our women sailors have shown that they are strongly developing their skills – so our usual place getters should be on notice that women’s sailing in Moreton Bay is growing in depth and skill.

CanTeen Day Success By Mark Gordon

The Club recently hosted members of the CanTeen, the Australian organisation for young people living with cancer. CanTeen is a national support organisation of 12 - 24 year olds living with cancer. The inspiration behind CanTeen is the belief that young people are better able to cope with the uncertainties of a cancer diagnosis through meeting and talking with other young people with similar experiences. These inspirational youngsters recently had a great time at WMYC, and went out on the Bay for a day of fun and leisurely sailing with WMYC members, who kindly donated access to their vessels for the day. The day included a free BBQ followed by an afternoon of sailing. By all accounts it was a fantastically successful day, enjoyed thoroughly by our guests and their carers.

"The Amity Classic has been a long time in development and I'm so delighted in how it has all come together. It's a boat for many different types of people. If you're like me with a family, it's the perfect overnight camper. It's also incredibly good fun for class or club racing. The important thing is the design's simplicity which makes it both practical and outstanding value without sacrificing quality and good looks". The design of the Amity is based on traditional and seamanlike principles that have been blended with modern materials and construction. This makes a practical boat to own, with the benefit of traditional shape with timeless classic appeal. The boats are hand built to a demanding specification utilising only the best of materials, the hulls are solid fiberglass and built to the highest quality standards with lead ballasted lifting keels. It’s overall strength and safety features make it much more than a social day sailer or weekender. In fact she was originally designed for short handed expedition work so she has the capability, safety and capacity for longer passages in testing conditions. For more information go to: www.amityboats.com.au or call Euan at Australiawide Boat Sales on 3348 3177.

Nautical Myths By Mark Gordon only the fruit, but also pests like spiders, snakes and rodents. The critters would reproduce and eventually infiltrate other parts of the ship. Once the banana boats from Central America arrived in port, the stevedores unloading the cargo sometimes received painful, and occasionally deadly, spider bites. Bananas also tend to ripen and blacken quickly, emitting a gas that can rapidly rot any other produce stored nearby. There's also the risk of a crew member slipping on a banana peel and suffering an injury or even falling overboard. Strike three for the beleaguered banana. Plants and flowers are not welcome on some boats. There's an old belief among fishermen that plants seek the earth, making them unsuitable for life afloat. Because flowers can be woven into a funeral wreath, some sailors think it best that they not be brought on board.

A member recently related a story that while attending a recent regatta, he overheard one of the sailors mention that she had brought some banana bread to share with her crew mates. She cautioned that it had to be enjoyed ashore, however, because her husband the skipper would not allow bananas, or any banana product, on board. The reason: Bananas on a boat are bad luck. It's not at all unusual for boaters to harbour superstitions. After all, they're at the mercy of the sea. While there's a grain of truth in some superstitions, others are completely devoid of any logic. We'll start with the bananas. It turns out that bananas do indeed have a problematic history on cargo ships. The wooden crates iin which bananas were shipped held not Page 22

Fortunately, most skippers are not so quick to embrace the nautical superstition that says women on board are bad luck. The origins of this one are rather fuzzy, but most date back to days when women on boats were few and far between. Consequently, women were considered a distraction for the male crew, who spend so much time away from their wives. This led to a long-held myth that women on a ship ''make the sea angry". Women were said to bring bad luck on board because they distracted the sailors from their sea duties. This kind of behaviour angered the intemperate seas that would take their revenge out on the ship. Funny enough, naked women on board were completely welcome. That's because naked women "calmed the sea". This is why ships' typically had a figure of a topless women perched on the bow of the ship apparently to "shame the stormy seas into calm" and her open eyes guided the seamen to safety. July - August I 2013


Another oft-repeated belief is that a voyage should never start on a Friday. Some trace this to the crucifixion of Christ on Good Friday. Legend has it that during the 1800s, Britain's Royal Navy, in an attempt to debunk the myth, commissioned an HMS Friday, launched her on a Friday, and put a Captain James Friday in command, only to have her disappear without trace. But in a statement released on Friday, July 13, 2007, Britain's Royal Naval Museum confirmed that there never was a Royal Navy ship named HMS Friday. So much for that one! A few nautical superstitions involve animals. A pod of dolphins playing in a vessel's wake is a sign of good luck, provided you don't kill one of them. The same goes for an albatross. A black cat, strangely enough, is considered good luck on a boat. It should come as no surprise that sharks signal impending doom. Seabirds were thought to carry the souls of dead sailors and it is considered bad luck to kill one. However, it is considered good luck if you see one.

The last two superstitions I came across make absolutely no sense, and like most superstitions, google could not serve up any supporting evidence. I therefore extend my apologies to all the redheads and lefthanded people out there. One myth is that an encounter with a red-headed person before boarding a boat is bad luck. But you can ward off any ill effects by speaking to the redhead before he or she speaks to you. Finally, some sailors apparently have a fear of lefties (left handed people, not Reds), and think it's bad luck to step on or off a boat with their left foot first. The remedy, involving retracing of steps and switching shoes to the opposite feet, seems even sillier than the original superstition. I would love to know whether any members have witnessed their comrades swapping shoes at any point. If you do, at least you will be wise to their predicament.

Cats were believed to have miraculous powers that could protect ships from dangerous weather. Sometimes, fishermen's wives would keep black cats at home too, in the hope that they would be able to use their influence to protect their husbands at sea. It was believed to be lucky if a cat approached a sailor on deck, but unlucky if it only came halfway, and then retreated. Other beliefs included: if a cat licked its fur against the grain, it meant a hailstorm was coming; if it sneezed it meant rain; and if it was frisky it meant wind.

Some words also carry serious consequences according to sailors. These include obvious ones like "drowned" and "goodbye". If someone says "good luck" to you, it is sure to bring about bad luck. The only way to reverse the curse is by drawing blood, so usually a good punch in the nose will do. Also, it is maintained that you should never change the name of a boat in that doing so will bring about bad luck. If you do rename the boat, you absolutely must have a de-naming ceremony which involves writing the current boat name on a piece of paper, folding the paper and placing it in a wooden box then burning the box. After, scoop up the ashes and throw them into the sea.

Whistling on a boat is highly discouraged in some circles, due to the long-standing belief that it would. I seem to remember someone whistling to bring the breeze during a race. It didn't work.

Whether you believe them or not, nautical superstitions are out there. To all WMYC members, we're keen to hear any of your superstitions. Email the editor, and we'll do our best to trace its origin.

Vintage Cup By Paul Aroney "Tom Thumb" The QCYC hosted this year’s Vintage Yacht Regatta over the June long weekend. Three boats from Wynnum Manly Yacht Club competed in the event: Balamara (John Richardson), Karunda (Greg Doolan) and Reg Manser and I were on Tom Thumb. There were 4 races with the large and smaller boats sailing overlapping courses to keep the action close and exciting. There were two triangles, an upwind/downwind and a longer race “around the pots”. The weather didn’t disappoint with 10 to 15 knots on Saturday and a knuckle crunching 20 knots plus on Sunday which forced us skippers to decide whether to be conservative and reef or press for glory under full sail. Fellow SAGS competitors won’t be surprised to hear that Tom Thumb, aiming for glory, sailed the Sunday races under full canvas but with Reg easing the main down the traveler so that she wasn’t too stressed. John Richardson’s son David skippered Balamara for the 4 races and we were all thrilled when he brought her home First on Handicap – Division 1. David was ecstatic

Page 24

and John later said “it is good to see the young generation coming through and being interested in sailing”. Balamara came third in Line Honours and won the trophy for Best Presented Vintage Yacht. Tom Thumb won the trophy for Line Honours Division 2 (small yachts), was 4th on handicap and a finalist for best presented small yacht. So all in all WMYC did pretty well. Greg Doolan was there with Bill Haslet’s old boat Karunda and although Greg didn’t get on the podium as he was on his own and sailing courses with short legs is very demanding and tiring. Well done Greg. Of course, the joys of messing about with boats, especially classic boats, aren’t all on the race course. There were dinners on the Saturday and Sunday nights and time on Sunday morning to walk around and admire the beautiful boats and meet their skippers and crew. This is a joy not to be missed for those of us who love classic boats and there were a few beauties I haven’t seen before. Keith Glover brought Wraith of Odin back after an absence of a couple of years. And

what a boat – 58 feet of John G Alden design just having completed an exhaustive and no doubt very expensive refit. I admired her beauty at first sight but I wasn’t expecting her amazing turn of speed around the course. From the moment she hoisted her giant gossamer genoa she took off like a jack rabbit winning the first race by 6 minutes and the second by 8. Outstanding! But she does need a crew of 8 to race and you don’t need to be into classic yachts to understand that it can be a struggle to find crew. Without enough willing hands Wraith of Odin had to remain at the dock on Sunday. The Friday before the Regatta we were out in the Bay, tuning Tom Thumb’s rig after varnishing the mast and replacing the standing rigging, when we saw a boat we hadn’t seen before, Christela of Cowes. We craned our necks to check her out and tried to guess whether she was from Cowes England or Victoria. Well she was at the regatta and we found out that she was built to a Frederick Parker design and launched at Cowes on the Isle of Wight in 1961. Her owner John Devers has made a fabulous job of restoring her and his association with the boat is both interesting and heartwarming. Wynnum Manly Yacht Club Inc.

He had to let her go for financial reasons but never really got over her. His son, knowing his love for the boat, bought her back for him as a surprise birthday present. To hear John tell the story was touching. We are hoping that he will bring her to WMYC. In addition to seeing the young generation’s interest in sailing and classic boats it’s also great to see a new generation of classic boats available. Euan MacDonald entered hull number one of the new Amity class in the regatta. Piper is a beautiful boat and proved to be a capable and stable performer even in Sunday’s strong conditions. Hopefully Euan will do well with this new class, designed for gunkholing around the bay. Our harsh Queensland climate isn’t ideal for classic wooden boats. But for those of us who appreciate their classic beauty and are prepared to put in the time and money to maintain our heritage there is great satisfaction to be had. Many thanks are due to the QCYC and the events sponsors for organising and supporting this event (Deagon Slipways, Amity Boats, Hempel, Gill and Angostura)

Cruising Report By Mike Bryant "Ocean Maid" Hi fellow boaties of WMYC from your Cruising Section delegate. On Easter Friday, some 14 boats, power and sail, met at the Little Ship Club on North Stradbroke Island for a fish bbq. The following morning we cruised together to cross the shallow part and entered Day’s Gutter on Moreton Island. Some cruisers went ashore for refreshments at the gutter bar and later met up on shore where Ocean Maid had organised an Easter hunt for those delicious lolly jars. After digging up half the beach finding those jars we all shared nibblies while watching the sun go down. Next morning we had time to have coffee on each others’ boats before moving south to selected anchorages. With good weather over the weekend it was a real treat to cruise in our boats and enjoy each others’ company.

Page 28

Our next scheduled cruise is on the weekend starting the 1st December and will be the traditional Christmas cruise. We meet at the Clubhouse at 0730 hrs. to sign on and then we head over to Horseshoe Bay. Lunch will be “pot luck" contribution and the cruising division will organise some drinks and cheese. At about 1400 the fleet will move South to Blakesley’s anchorage. This should have us safely anchored before the usual summer storm. We will have a beach meeting for a “sun downer “, a camp fire and an opportunity for all to display their singing talents. Tides on the 1st of December (Brisbane Bar) are: 0426hrs 0.35m, 10:58hrs 2.33m, 17.31hrs 0.59m. Please note cruise fee of $10. I look forward to seeing you there Smooth seas

Manly Dragons by Jason Ferrari - President The Manly Dragons just keep getting stronger and stronger with our latest efforts at the Australian National Championship in Penrith in April this year. We were very successful to come 2nd in the masters division, and 10th overall out of a staggering 85 clubs and some 3500 competitors. Our open division was also successful and secured some great wins as the club continued to show their dominance in the open division. Mother nature played its part on the last day of racing with racing cancelled half way through the day with possible more medals for Manly to come. This Nationals that Manly Dragons have just completed was our most successful Australian National Championship campaign to date. Manly Dragons ended up with 11 Gold, 3 Silver & 2 Bronze. An absolutely amazing result given that we only had a contingent of 49 paddlers. We entered into 18 events and medalled in 15 plus the bonus category of Trans-Tasman Challenge (Silver) which added to our haul. Congratulations to all Manly Dragons. Manly now are the 2013 Australian Champions in the following events:

In addition to these Gold Medal & trophies Manly also won the following: Silver - Senior A Mixed Small Boat 500m Silver - Open Age Women Small Boat 500m (Trans-Tasman Challenge) Silver - Senior B Open Small Boat 200m Bronze - Senior B Open Small Boat 200m Bronze - Open Age Open (Men) Small Boat 500m In the coming months we will be applying a great deal of time to training up our new members in order to increase our pool of talented paddlers to contest the 2014 State titles, National and International Championships.
