Docklands Yacht Club is hosting the 2010 Flying Fifteen International Victorian Interclub Championships on Sunday 16 May.

 

These classy, two person, highly technical keelboats have sailed on Victoria Harbour in the past.  The FFIV Association members enjoyed the venue so much they are back, hopefully on a regular basis, despite having to provide a mobile crane to launch and retrieve their boats for each event.

 

Teams of three boats from each of eight Victorian clubs will contest the one-day event that will be managed on the water by Principal Race Officer Geoff Eldridge from Davey's Bay Yacht Club.  The twenty four boats will race in three separate fleets with the best combined scores winning the team trophy.

 

DYC members who are able to assist on the day should contact Secretary David Staley via email - dycsail@tpg.com.au
