These yachts are moored at the Mornington Yacht Club down the Southern end of Port Phillip bay. I took these photos one freezing wintery morning when sailing was not a high priority for the owners of the owners of these yachts. The intensity of storms on the bay can be measured by the number of losses at this club. More than one insurance claim is usually made each Winter .  Unlike clubs further up the bay this one is not well protected by a  large breakwater. Behind the yachts in the images is the city of Melbourne CBD on the skyline about 40 kilometres to the North.
