Laser Events Season 2016/17

NSW&ACT_Laser_Logo_SmallWe have a great line up of events for next season.

In NSW/ACT we will resume our normal arrangement running separate Open and Masters States with the Open State Championship at Georges River SC and the State Masters back at a favourite venue Great Lakes SC.

The season will kick off with the Coasts at South Lakes ASC at Sunshine on Lake Macquarie – a great club and sailing venue. The Metros will be held from Vaucluse YC and will have arrangements in place to allow sailors to stage from clubs and locations around the Harbour.

The Australian Championship, which is held in rotation, will next season be at Adelaide SC SA.

So that sailors and clubs can plan their next season’s calendars and programs following are the events and venues we will be running or are aware of;
