SEASON 2020-21

We are kicking off the 2020/21 Season in fine style with a number of events planned for February/March 2021.

Event 1:

Chelsea FOAK Regatta 6th of February – Saturday only – Cash prizes available and part of VSSA Travellers series

Event 2:

Ballarat Bertie 13th February – Sunday only – A right of passage for all vic sharpie sailors as we head out to the western district to catch up with our strong regional part of the fleet. Lake Wendouree provides a serious challenge for sailors and a really fun, friendly environment. This year it will also be part of the VSSA Traveller Series.

Event 3:

EAST COAST CHAMPIONSHIP – Sat/Sun 27/28th February Mordialloc Sailing Club

The pinnacle event on the calendar for the VSSA with a bumper fleet of 25+ expected this will be as good as a mini nationals. With 20+ Victorians and boats from Tassie, ACT and SA joining the fun we are expecting a huge turnout. For those who arrive early we will be having a warm up invitation race on the Friday night with a welcome BBQ. Saturday and Sunday will comprise of 3 races each. This is also leg 1 of the Victorian State Champoionships.

Event 4:

Victorian State Championships Round 2 – McCrae Yacht Club March 28/29th – The final act of the 20/21 season at McCrae will be a ripping way to conclude the season. With a small fleet growing on the peninsular it will be fantastic to join forces and have a big fleet down there.
