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


Scheduled over 7 Sundays through to March next year, the Short Course Series is open to Access 2.3, Access 303 and other classes.  Dates for racing are September 18, October 16, November 20 and December 4, 2011, then January 15, February 19 and March 4, 2012.


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 17-18 at Lysterfield Sailing Club) and the Australian and World Championships being held in Sydney (April 7-13 at Middle Harbour Yacht 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.
