All Laser sailors are invited to compete in the NB SailSports Winter Sprint Series. This is a series of short races, 3 per day, held at 4 venues Woollahra Sailing Club, Middle Harbour Amateur Sailing Club, Gosford Sailing Club and Double Bay Sailing Club.

|Gosford Sailing Club||25th August||1.00pm||3 races|
|Double Bay Sailing Club||8th September||11.00am||3 races|
This series has been scheduled to coincide with pre-season events already planned at these clubs together with a new one at Middle Harbour.
The format is designed to give everyone the opportunity to get some pre-season racing in a variety of conditions at several venues. The earlier starts at some of the venues is an attempt to catch the best of the winter winds. There will be three races each day total 12 with 9 to count towards the series result. This means you can sail in three of the four events and still get a decent score.
NB SailSports are the sponsor of the series and will provide some great prizes.
As well as providing prizes NB SailSports will have their van at the venues to assist sailors to upgrade their gear. New ropes sails spars and repair kits will be available with Mitch Buckingham able to give advice and provide assistance. They can also arrange bookings for hull touch-ups and repairs and of course take orders for new boats if your old one is not up to scratch.

The Regatta will comprise three races each day with the Saturday start at 12.00noon and Sunday 11.00am. Entry which can be placed at the Club is $40 or $20 for sailors under 21.
