An invitation is extended to all female sailors who have been part of the Sailing Academy to enter the SheSAILS@NCYC Development Regatta for 2024.
This event, designed to develop women’s sailing in the Newcastle region, is an annual regatta to provide female sailors with an enjoyable “around the buoys” inshore racing event where fun & learning is the primary focus.
Our highly successful event was first held in July 2017 with the aim of showing ladies who had completed sailing courses with the NCYC Sailing Academy what a possible next step might be . . into regatta racing.
Individual sailors can register for the regatta using your AS Number (you would have received from completing an Academy course).
We will allocate you onto a crew with 3 other graduates and an instructor/skipper - forming a crew of 5 sailors.
The Entry Fee is $125.00 per person and includes a shorebased training session with tea/coffee/bickies, on-water training and racing day access to boats, instructor/skipper for both days, a regatta gift, on-water bag of lolly snakes! . . . . and a Bubbles & Nibbles presentation and prizes.
Saturday 2nd March is the Training Morning - 8:30am to 12:30pm - so you can get together with your crew, meet one another and have a bit of practise time on water.
Sunday 3rd March is our Racing Morning - 8:30am to 12:30pm - where we will sail up to four short races on the Harbour
