Event information

This event is sold out.

Silver Fleet is a mixture of adventure sailing and racing for kids that have completed Green Fleet who are not interested in racing every week.

Find the 2023-24 program here.

The aim of this program is to grow sailing foundation skills through coaching during the racing and adventure sailing activities and keep kids interested in sailing through other fun activities.  We hope to incorporate some exciting non-sailing activities into this program like kayaking, fishing and more...

The sailing program will alternate each week with racing one week and adventure sailing the next and also encourage participation in Open Skiff Regattas.  The Silver Fleet will race with the Gold Fleet on Saturday afternoons, however, the Silver Fleet will sail a shorter course (so they don’t feel slow).  The Silver Fleet will also be encouraged to participate in local O’pen Skiff Regattas (there will be no Silver Fleet Program on these days).

Silver Fleet focus is on fun and creativity, to teach racing skills and extend the skills already learnt.  Through spending time on the water with friends and having fun in boats, they’ll also become active club members.

Syllabus: Better sailing, wind shifts, sail trim, gusts and lulls, sailing standing-up.

Current sailing classes in our Silver Fleet are O’pen Skiffs and Lasers.  Silver Fleet juniors are encouraged to use their own boat.  If your family is not ready for boat ownership, the club has a couple of boats available for hire at a reasonable fee.

Eligible persons must be either SPASC Family or Junior members
