Winter Sailing

 
During the winter months, racing takes place almost every Sunday followed by Salty Dog lunch and after sail camaraderie by the fire at the Junior Club. Races are run from ‘The Peppermint Lounge’, a permanent winter RC float. Racers are assisted by a pair of expertly manned crash boats who are Johnny-on-the-spot in any unplanned occurrences.
 
Our fleet members range from just starting out to national champs. We have sailors who help out and teach rigging, sailing techniques and coaching. We host seminars on the racing rules, tactics and other subjects to help raise the level of all our members.
