WOMEN’S SAILING AT LMYC
For over 90 years, Lake Macquarie Yacht Club (LMYC) has supported women in sailing & mixed crews are common at LMYC. The first women’s trophy, proudly displayed in the club trophy cabinet, was presented in 1930.
Our club annually includes a Lady Skipper Series (6 races) in our Friday Twilight races & awards the Lady Sailor of the Year trophy at our annual presentation night.
SheSAILS was an original initiative developed by Jan Howard & Mary Holley at Newcastle Cruising Yacht Club (NCYC). Fittingly, Jan & Mary’s commitment to women’s sailing was acknowledged by AS when their program was adopted nationally.
