Sabot Transition Fleet Sailors

The transition fleet will commence on Saturday 15 October 2005. This fleet is open to those sailors who completed the training course last season and any new sailors who would like to revise the skills learnt in the training school.

The transition fleet briefing will be held at 1140 hrs. It is important that all sailors are present at the briefing as weather conditions, skill revision and the sailing instructions will be given out at this meeting. It is anticipated that racing will commence at 12 noon, weather conditions dependant, and finish at 1300- 1330 hrs.

The transition fleet will finish on Saturday 17 December 2005. When sailing commences in the new year, all sabot sailors will sail in the fleet which starts at 1400 hrs. Transition fleet sailors are also welcome to sail in the sabot B fleet races (which commence at 1400 hrs), if they so desire prior to Christmas.
