Only 3 weeks until Sailing World Cup (SWC) Melbourne at St Kilda.
With almost 100 sailors competing in the Optimist Fleet this is going to be a fantastic warm up to the Opti Nationals in January. We have the best Optimist sailors from around Australia and a number of International competitors including sailors from China as part of the VIODA/Qingdao Sailor Exchange program.
This year SWC is hosting an Intermediate fleet with a wind limit of 20 knots. If you are an Intermediate sailor and would like to get some good start line practice before the Nationals make sure you enter ASAP.
Who has entered?
ENTER SAILING WORLD CUP MELBOURNE
With Early Bird entry closing in shortly we have entries growing quickly for the biggest Optimist Regatta in Australia for the year.
This is the premier event of the year where all our Optimist sailors from around Australia come together to enjoy their love of sailing and catch up with their interstate friends. At this event our National Teams will be selected that will go on to campaign for the Australian Optimist Sailing Team & Development Squad.
With a late entry fee of $50 starting on the 25th November 2016, it is a great time to enter and avoid the price increase. Largs Bay Sailing Club are well underway with preparations for our arrival and early entry assist greatly with planning.
The Nationals will be running three fleets for our sailors. Green, Intermediate and Open. If you need help with selecting your fleet, check our "Which Fleet?" section of the OptiAUS website to assist.
