An exciting new State Championship program for Season 2021/22
Following a fantastic season of Sharpie sailing in South Australia last season that included a special event the SA Summer of Sail in lieu of Nationals we managed to have a great season of racing. 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 Adelaide Sailing Club, and after Christmas at the Port Vincent Sailing Club on Yorke Peninsula.
Registrations for the coming season will be opening in September and all current members will be advised of the new costing and modified registration process. This registration will include your affiliation costs for both the State and National associations, race fees for both State Championship legs, and also individual association memberships for each sailor.
The SA Sharpie association remains committed to making the sport available to all and would like to confirm the 2021/22 season, boats with junior skippers (under 21 at 30 June 2021) will receive their membership absolutely FREE, a great incentive for young sailors.
