Discover Keelboat Racing
If you are new to sailing and keen to get into racing, this is the place to start.
With a Yachting Australia Instructor as skipper, participants will be active crew members in a club pursuit race whereby slower boats start first and bigger, faster boats starting progressively later.
Often the fleet finishes closely together in an exciting conclusion
Held year round every Wednesday (weather dependent). Wednesday Wonders is a casual, social introduction to yacht racing.
Participants are required to be at the Ken King Centre at 12.30 pm ready to go on the water. Races finish around 3.30 pm
Sunday Sailors runs fortnightly through winter.
If conditions allow we will hoist a spinnaker for extra thrill.
Participants are required to be at the Ken King Centre at 8.30 am ready to go on the water. Races finish around 12.30 pm
Thursday twilight races run weekly from October to April. They are a great way to conclude the work day and whilst they are seen as social events, every boat is in it to win it!
Participants need to be dockside by 5.30 pm for a 6.15pm race start.
Make sure to stick around after racing to relive the highlights, meet new friends and find your next race boat.
All Discover Racing events are beginner friendly, includes use of wet weather gear and complementary drink at the bar.
