Congratulations to Chloe Harper who came 3rd in the 420 Sail Sydney Regatta! Sophie Jackson had her first outing in the 470 with 5 of the top 10 in the world competing! The likes of Aussie gold medalist Matt Belcher who has been sailing the 470 for 20 years meant it was a huge learning experience and showed how far the gap is to the top at Olympic level.
Congratulations to Rhett Gowans who won another Australian Title last week, this time in an Aero 7, adding to his Laser Radial win a few years ago! The event was sailed in Port Stephens, Rhett said the sailing was fantastic in big sea breezes!

Last March we were due to host school sailing, but unfortunately the weather didn’t allow it.
So this was our first with the new Pacers, our second is next Saturday & then we have another on 9th of February.
Competing were: Peninsula, Haileybury, Brighton, Geelong Grammar, St Michael’s & Mentone.
Scotch & Trinity didn't attend but are part of the series.
The pacers are also being used in the Adult Learn to Sail Courses starting this week which is an initiative of Sophie Jackson
