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.
December Short Course Regatta
by David Staley
The Docklands Short Course Regatta was sailed in a light and fluctuating southerly this Sunday.
It was a very a warm and sunny day but the sea breeze never freshened as expected. Nevertheless, racing conditions were good and six races were conducted in two sessions. All classes raced together in a combined division with results calculated in Yachting Victoria Yardsticks.
Winner of the inaugural Short Course Regatta was Roy Jewell who won 4 of the 6 races on corrected time sailing a Hansa 303. Cadeyrn Gaskin in a Liberty was second, and Christine Elliott (Hansa 303) was third.
Results from the Regatta also count for the class based season championships.
