2017-18 season

Published Fri 15 Sep 2017

Dear Australian F18 association member.

The new sailing season will soon be upon us. During the off season, we have been planning regatta's all over the country.

This year's national championships are to be held at the Jervoise Bay Sailing Club from the 24th until the 27th of January 2018. 

This will be the first time the F18 fleet has held a national title in WA. 

For those who have not been keeping tabs on the WA fleet they have continued to grow at rapid rate with the standard of sailing continuing to improve.

Every year the Western Australian sailors make the pilgrimage across the Nullarbor desert to attend our national championships. This year it is our turn to visit the west. To help make this regatta the success it deserves to be the F18 association is sponsoring two containers for up to 24 boats from NSW and VIC. Cost will be $500 per boat return. Containers will be leaving from the Kurnell yacht club and Port Melbourne Yacht club on the 9th of January, but will need to be loaded a couple of days prior.

If there is enough interest from FNQ the Association will also support a container from Townsville. 

Please contact to reserve a spot ASAP.
