The Docklands Short Course Racing Series has only managed to be sailed on two days so far this season but there is growing interest in the competition. 

 

In December, a number of new sailors joined in the seven heats, racing along with members of Victoria's Special Olympics Sailing Team.  On January 10, 5 races were run on trapezoid courses to help sailors prepare for the Access Nationals the following week at Brighton.

 

Andrew Cook currently has a clear lead in the 2.3s with Jim McGoldrick ahead in the 303s.

 

Scheduled over 8 Sundays from September through April, the Docklands Short Course Series is open to Access 2.3, Access 303 and other classes.
