Saturday Morning Sailing:

Every Saturday morning we meet for racing. Generally the starting time is 9:30am and racing usually finishes around 1:00pm. This does depend on the weather conditions and the number of skippers attending. All Members and Visitors are Welcome. At the beginning of each month we generally have a BBQ after the races are completed around the 12:30 am timeslot. This is a great way to meet your fellow skippers and have a “snag” at the same time. If you would like to race the Saturday Morning Sailing has an attendance donation of $2:00 per skipper. This can be paid in advance up to 12 months. This donation includes the monthly trophy races, also covers the provisions of buoys , registering of boats, rescue boat, public liability Insurance, trailer hire, bulletins and two sailing days per week.
