We have a fabulous program coming up this season as we lead up to the World Championships to be held at Black Rock in Dec 2014 to Jan 2015.
Highlights of this seasons NSW program include:
Myuna Bay Sprints on the October long weekend - this is a great way to start the season with plenty of startline practice. We'll be happy to arrange boats for any interstate or interdominion sailors interested in a weekend at the lake.
Big River at Harwood Island is shaping up to be a gala event again. We have a huge interest in this weekend and hope to have over a dozen boats this year.
Go-for-Gold and Sail Melbourne have been moved closer to each other and they're now only a fortnight apart. This may make it feasible to leave boats in Melbourne for the two weeks and reduce the amount of travel required for two top-class regattas. This then also leads into the 2013 National Championships, also at Black Rock, over New Year.
The NSW State Championships are at a great venue this season with a return to Batemans Bay. This is a great place to sail (if the weather is kind to us) and there is plenty of accomodation available (but plan on booking early as this is ANZAC weekend).
I look forward to seeing all the familar faces and many new ones this season,
