Sailing Section

Welcome to the 2017-18 season.

The Aviemore Classic remains our premier event, to be held over Labour Weekend as usual. This event attracts a good fleet from around the country. The reputation this event carries is testament to the expertise and effort of our club’s considerable team of volunteers. A huge thanks to all those involved.

We all enjoy hosting visitors to the club, and this year we are expecting to host the Noelex 22 South Island Champs in November. Then there is the age group regatta in February which usually sees a good turn-out of young talent, and of course the club will be represented at the usual away regattas.

Any adult members with basic power boating skills are invited to help out on a Saturday afternoon with a few hours in the patrol boat please. The sailing community can help lay the course, and then it is about being at hand in support if needed.

Our regular Saturday sailing continues with enthusiasm, be that with reducing boat numbers. To those competing, have a safe and enjoyable season. To those watching or coming along later to share the debrief, we look forward to seeing you.
