Following the success of last year’s event, event organisers are continuing with the central location of information for this annual regatta allowing for ease of information and registration which can all be found via the Club Marine Series website.
The five host clubs: Royal Yacht Club of Victoria, Hobsons Bay Yacht Club, Royal Melbourne Yacht Squadron, Royal Brighton Yacht Club and Sandringham Yacht Club along with Australian Sailing are the backbone of this series. Each race day they supply the assets, volunteers and Race Officials that allow the event to take place. The first race of the 2016 Club Marine Series, kicks off on Saturday the 8th October and is hosted by the Royal Yacht Club of Victoria.
Paralleling the White Series, event organisers are aiming to surpass last year’s high entry numbers for the Club Marine Blue Series competitors. The Blue Series engages sailors who want to race in a relaxed atmosphere and still compete in the Club Marine Series. It supports ‘Around the Sticks’ racing and aims to provide a cruising environment on the water. Registration for the Blue Series is available here or via the Club Marine Series website.
