The Docklands Yacht Club Short Course Racing Series gets underway once again this October.


Scheduled over 7 Sundays through April next year, the Short Course Series is open to Access 2.3, Access 303, Liberty and other classes. Dates for racing are October 21, November 18 & December 16 in 2012 and January 20, February 17, March 17 & April 21 in 2013.


It is a great fun way to get a start or progress in racing and provides plenty of practice with starts and mark roundings, and helps to develop skills, technique and rules knowledge while enjoying some friendly competition. A limited number of club boats are available for members and visiting sailors.


The Series provides an ideal preparation for sailors competing in the Access Class Victorian Championships (March 1-3 at Ballarat Yacht Club) and the Australian Championships (March 29 - April 1 at the Canberra Sailing Club).


Informal training and coaching may be available in the mornings before racing.


The Notice of Race and Sailing Instructions are available via the links below.


If you have any questions, contact David Staley via email or phone 9012 2612 during business hours.
