July 7- 9 Junior & Youth Coaching Regatta 2023
Wintersail is back again in 2022 as part of the Albert Park Yacht Clubs 150 th year of sailing celebrations. Its going to be bigger and better this year and as usual held over the last 3 days of the school term holidays (8,9,10 th July).
What better way to refresh those skills and techniques in time for the coming Summer series with professional coaches taking small group classes for personal coaching. Our head coach for 2022 is Susannah Gillam.
Its going to be a combination of skills improvement, challenges, short course racing, recognition for effort and reward for results, but most of all …. lots of FUN plus catching up with friends, look at last years photos on the website!!
Our club facilities have undergone some recent updates and refurbishments. Family and friends are most welcome to attend and enjoy the event, the views and APYC hospitality.
A limited number of boats are available to hire, mostly Bics , and Minnows), bookings will be available on Trybooking in April…. see you there!
