Dates for the Diary
This Sunday, the 1st March, we not only have 2 Club Championship Races on but we also have the Mt Martha YC visit to Safety Beach Sailing Club. We need every OTB boat out on the water this Sunday in a bid to wrangle the trophy back from Mt Martha. Please note the change in start time with the first warning signal at 12:57H so don't be late.
How good was Sail Peninsula 2020
Great Sailing, Awesome Food & Entertainment and a heap of fun was had by all that were involved either on or off the water
Finally we were blessed with some lovely sailing conditions and managed to get in all three races. Thank you to our many SBSC boats and crews that support this regatta every year. Without you the regatta wouldn't exist. We had great representation from Sandringham YC, Mornington YC, Blairgowrie YS and the Multihull Association who definitely provide the most entertainment on the water. It was also very pleasing to receive entries from Hobsons Bay, Royal Geelong and Martha Cove .
Again our friends from Royal Melbourne Yacht Squadron joined us for the festivities on the Saturday night and as we all know they are renowned for enjoying a good party!. Big thanks to Snooks Catering who just make this event better and better each year. The food and entertainment was amazing and can't wait to see what they come up with next year. To our SP2020 Organising Committee - what a team!!!! You should all feel incredibly proud of putting together, what I think was, the best Sail Peninsula Regatta to date showcasing just what a great club Safety Beach Sailing Club is. We also must thank our Race Officials Geoff Eldridge Lou Hutton and Geoff Searle and all our volunteers who worked tirelessly not just over the weekend but the whole week leading up to the event.
The amazing Chris Parks and his team of photographers and drone pilots have captured some fantastic images and footage of this years event. We were lucky to see some of the shots on the big screen over the weekend however, I believe all the shots taken will soon be made available so keep watching this space!
Well done to all the boats and crews that percolated to the top of your division. All the results are available at SP2020 Results.
Congratulations to Blairgowrie YS for taking out this years AMS Challenge Cup in a very tight fought battle with a 1 point victory over Sandringham YC .
Finally thank you to our regatta sponsors. We are incredibly grateful for your support.
We have already locked in our dates for Sail Peninsula 2021 which will be held on the weekend of the 19th - 21st February 2021 so make sure you put these dates into your diary now as this is event is not to be missed.

With a number of yachts from the Club heading north for winter, the question for the owners is how to get them up there, safely and securely?
If you do not have the time to take your yacht north yourself, I offer a professional delivery service and would be happy to discuss your requirements.
A Yachtmaster (Offshore, Commercially Endorsed) with Skippers Professional Indemnity insurance, I can also organise qualified delivery crew if required or supervise your roster of suitably experienced crew.
