Albert Sailing Club 2021 'Pop-Up' Regatta.

 

DUE TO THE LATEST LOCKDOWN IN MELBOURNE, THE POP-UP REGATTA SCHEDULED FOR SATURDAY JULY 17 HAS BEEN CANCELLED. 

WE WILL LOOK AT RESCHEDULING ONCE THE LOCKDOWN HAS CEASED AND RESTRICTIONS PERMIT US TO ORGANISE A SUCCESSFUL EVENT.

Overview

We invite you to  come along and enjoy the excellent conditions currently available at Albert Park Lake and the hospitality of our cBoats Racing.jpglub at our one day 'Pop-Up' Regatta on Saturday 17th July (subject, of course, to CoVid restrictions at that time).

This  event will consist of short-course racing, and will be held at the scenic Albert Park Lake, South Melbourne. The lake provides safe, relatively flat (no waves) sailing, but challenges sailors with frequent wind changes and gusts due to its shallow depth, the island in the middle and the trees and buildings surrounding the race area. Recent rains have filled the lake and the weed has just been cut, so  the conditions will be great if the wind gods favour us on the day.

Racing Details

Racing will commence at 1.30 p.m. with a briefing session at 12.45.  Racing will conclude around 4.30 p.m. , followed by a free BBQ and the presentations. Racing will be conducted in accordance with the club's Standard Notice of Race and Standard Sailing Instructions (modified appropriately for changes applicable to July 17)Lake view from deck.jpg and all race documents can be found below.

Entry is open for all monohull dinghys < 5.5 metres.

Fees

Entry is free for sailors with an Australian Sailing number if pre-registration is done by Wednesday 14th July.  The fee  is $10 for all late entries, excluding ASC and APYC members who pay no entry fee.

Pre-registration is requested due to CoVid restrictions and numbers are limited, so early registration is recommended.
