Sailors from Docklands Yacht Club will again be competing at the annual Sauna Sail regatta.

This iconic event takes place on the Queen's Birthday long weekend June 10th to 12th at Latrobe Valley Yacht Club.

The regatta takes place on the Hazelwood pondage which was, until recently, the cooling pond for the Hazelwood Power station. The warm water and cool mornings created a fog and gave the regatta it's name. Whilst the power station is now closed, and the water will be cold, the reception and sailing will be red hot!

Hansa 303 and Liberty sailors from DYC will be taking part again this year. You can find out more at the Sauna Sail website.
