SA Sharpies

Welcome to the home page of the South Australian Sharpies, where you can find local information or register for State Championships.

2020/21 SEASON

An exciting new State Championship program for Season 2020/21

Following an exciting season of Sharpie sailing in South Australia last season that included a new venue for the regional leg in Arno Bay, the SA Sharpies community is now ready to get back into it for this coming season. Our State Championship will include the first leg pre-Christmas at the Largs Bay Sailing Club, and after Christmas at the Port Vincent Sailing Club on Yorke Peninsula.

Registrations for the coming season are yet to open and pricing will be finalised soon. However, registrations will include affiliation with both the State and National associations, race fees for both State Championship legs, and also individual association memberships for each sailor.

Regardless of the final price set for the 2020/21 season, boats with junior skippers (under 21 at 30 June 2021) receive their membership absolutely FREE, a great incentive for young sailors.

2020/21 EVENTS

MILANG SPRINT SERIES – 3-4 October 2020

Don’t miss out on the opening event of the SA Sharpies season as we head to the Milang Regatta Club for our third annual Sprint Series event over the 2020 October long weekend.

The format for this event will include three course races on the Saturday, six sprint races on the Sunday, as well as a fun and exciting social calendar. 


The first leg of the 2020/21 SA Sharpies States will be hosted by the Largs Bay Sailing Club in December on 12-13 December 2020.

Entries into the State Championship are included in your registration with the State Association, which are yet to open for this coming season.


In place of the 2020/21 Nationals in Canberra, which had to be cancelled due to COVID-19, the South Australian sailing community will instead be involved in the Harken SA Summer of Sail Festival, with the Sharpies participating in the first regatta of the festival at Brighton and Seacliff Yacht Club.

This season the Sharpie class returns to Port Vincent for the regional leg of our State Championship on the weekend of 13-14 March 2021, which is set to be a great event.

Entries into the weekend are provided in your state registration fees paid earlier in the season, however slightly cheaper weekend passes will be available as well.


This year we will continue our successful interclub days.

The first interclub day will be held at the Brighton & Seacliff Yacht Club (Date TBC) and the second at the Adelaide Sailing Club on 5 December 2020. For exact start times please refer to the club racing schedules.



The ‘Australian Sharpie Sailing Association – South Australian Divison’, more commonly refered to as ‘SA Sharpies’, operates as a division of the national association, while also maintaining its own constitution and regulations for use in South Australia.
