Winter Wednesday & Combined Clubs Saturday NOR & Entry

by Roger

All you need is an extra jumper.

That’s the main difference between Summer and Winter club racing on Sydney Harbour. RANSA once again is pleased to be hosting both the Winter Wednesday series of races from 2nd May through to 19th September, and the Combined Clubs Winter Saturday 5th May through to 18th August. Last year we had great fleets for both series and some great competitive racing and look forward to seeing you out on the water again this year.

A few years ago RANSA in cooperation with Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron, the Sydney Amateur Sailing Club and the Royal Prince Edward Yacht Club joined forces and combined resources to tackle this problem of declining Saturday fleet numbers.

The Combined Clubs Winter Series has proven this format of  "3 Series within a Series" works with increasing fleet numbers each year. This year we welcome MHYC to the Combined Clubs Winter Series to further bolster the fleet numbers and variety of boats competing.

The success of the Combined Clubs Winter Series is due to the ability of yacht owners to select the series that suits them & their crew from 6 to 15 races. This Smorgasbord provides them with flexibility to tie in with their crews’ other winter commitments.

There will be a choice of three Winter series, raced concurrently:
* The SASC trophy competition comprising 6 races at roughly fortnightly intervals
* The RSYS trophy series of 12 weekly races
* The RANSA series of 15 weekly races

Entry in the longer series will automatically include entry to any shorter series. The Schedule of races and associated Race Committee for the series is:
