July 9-11 Junior & Youth Coaching Regatta 2021
Wintersail - See you in July 2021
What a great way to enjoy the last few days of the school holidays in July than at the Albert Park Yacht club on Albert Park lake.
This year will be bigger and better for all, after last years great enrollment and participation. We will ensure that there is plenty of sailing opportunities combined with improved skill sessions and racing in time for the commencement of the Summer season.
As usual we shall have a good number of qualified Coaches on hand to personally supervise the advanced, intermediate and beginners in the varying classes of boats seen at the lake and off the beach.
This is also a good social opportunity to meet other like minded sailors from other clubs who arrive from both near and far and want to experience the excitement and challenges of lake sailing.
We will again open the club from 5pm to 8pm on the Thursday prior to receive your boats and equipment for storage prior to the Regatta.
As has been the custom over past years our helpful volunteers will be on hand to assist unloading and store boats and equipment over the weekend.
As usual family and friends are most welcome to enjoy the club facilities over the three days including a well catered Galley and after sailing BBQ and Bar facilities.
Book in early !
Entries open 1st May 2021 and close on July 1st, but it would be helpful to have your registration around June 16th.
Wintersail is a coaching regatta for junior sailors. You will receive dedicated and personalised coaching from team of qualified Australian Sailing coaches under the leadership of our Head Coach, Glenn Collings.
Wintersail aims to improve and develop sailing and race skills. Coaching groups will be kept at a size, which will facilitate individualised attention.
