Docklands Yacht Club overlooks Victoria Harbour with sweeping views of the Melbourne City skyline and the ever changing Docklands precinct. From January 2016, sailing will take place from the 60 metre pontoon at our new premises - the Community Boating Hub, 912 Collins Street, adacent to the Library at Dock Square. Community Sailing days are normally the second and fourth Sunday of each month year round from 11am but are subject to change (check Calendar page for more details). Everyone is welcome. We supply the boats, lifejackets and instruction.
Racing continues in Short Course Series
Melbourne turned on a perfect day for sailing and 9 sailors enjoyed more heats of the Docklands Short Course Series this Sunday. With sunny skies and 10-15 knots of steady south-easterly, conditions were ideal. The program of two and three lap windward-leeward courses was completed within two hours.
Sarah Millsom, sailing again with her brother Craig, scored two first placings today in the Access 303 division. Having competed in each of the 22 heats sailed since October, and placing consistently in each session, Sarah has now established a 28 point lead in the series. With only two more race days scheduled, she may be difficult to beat. In his first visit to Docklands today, Neil Patterson also impressed with two race wins today.
In the Access 2.3 division, Marke Thorpe claimed all but one of the races today and has taken the lead by two points from Martin Waller.
The Access Liberty competition is expected to recommence for the next two sessions as Cadeyrn Gaskin and Russell Phillips prepare for the State Championships being held in March at Lysterfield Sailing Club.
The next racing days are February 19 and March 4.
