SBSC is excited to be hosting a free day of sailing for Women and Girls on Saturday November 16th. Experience large boat sailing or the excitement of small class boats. Learn from experienced women sailors and discover the camaraderie among women in sailing.
After a fun morning on the water, come and enjoy a free BBQ lunch where you can mix with great new friends.
Starts at 9.00 sharp at upstairs at the club. Here we will split into group and head off to sail. Once this is done, we will meet back at the club for a free BBQ, listen to some guest speakers, and trade stories of the day with other participants and women sailors from SBSC.
After much discussion over the last 18months we are pleased to announce the introduction of our new Midweek Madness Series aimed at those with a bit of extra time mid week. The first race in the series will be November 6th and each Wednesday unless notified.
The SBSC Sailing Instructions for Keelboat Fleet 2019-2020 will apply to this series.
This series will run in tandem with the Friday Twilight Pursuit Series and with its success be added to the program for next year when published.
The prizes will be bottles of wine from several of our Sponsor members who thankfully support the club.
Although this series is designed to have minimal tower participation , there maybe someone in the tower watching the start sequence so honesty when starting is required.
