Latest News:  28/06/2019 - Open Days

Special Open Day Sailing Events

The club is adding few Open Day sailing events to its sailing calendar. So keep a look out for the dates and schedules on our sailing calendar and website. The first Open Day fun event, will be held in the 3rd week of October and is programmed for the morning only, after which the sailors will have their official club racing in the afternoon.

The idea of Open Day fun sailing is to encourage all age groups and families to come and enjoy sailing and to go out with our best sailors on mixed class catamarans or windsurfers. The program for the Open Days will be advised on the day, but may also be publicised outside the club website, eg in Pittwater OnLine. ...Read More

Week 4 5- 15 knot gradient Noréaster shifty and patchy. Boat performed best yet. ...Read More
