This is always a great event with lots of entries (130 last time). This regatta will also be a great warm up for the Laser State Championship which DBSC will be hosting in November.
You can enter online HERE (cost is $60 or $30 if you are under 21). Beach entries will be accepted up to 11.30am on Saturday 18th March with payment by cash, Visa or Master card.
For sailors rigging at other clubs we will again have sign on and off by SMS available – just send an SMS to 0477 647 537 with the boat number/s and the words “sign on” and “sign off” (SIs 22.4 applies).
DBSC has arranged car parking at the Double Bay Public School just across Steyne Park from the club – entry is off William Street. Cost is $20 for the weekend going to the school’s P&C. Otherwise limited on street parking can be found but it may be a long walk away. Be warned the local parking police are quite vigilant so observation of the parking restriction signs is recommended.
Trailers can be parked on the grassed area near the club. Access for this trailer parking will be via Ocean Avenue where it meets the bay, and not Bay Street. Google map is HERE.
DBSC Commodore Luke Parker has the following message for Laser sailors:
On behalf of all at DBSC, I’d encourage Laser sailors from far and wide to join us at the 2017 NSW Laser Metropolitan Championships. DBSC hosted the Regatta in 2015 and it was a great success. We’re determined to repeat that performance next weekend.
We’ll be racing on Sydney Harbour, not far from the Bridge, the City, the Harbour Islands and Fort Denison. It’s a spectacular and challenging place to race. Of course, we won’t have the harbour to ourselves, but we’ll be positioning courses to make the most of the prevailing winds with consideration of other traffic.
Our change rooms have ample hot water, you’ll get a DBSC engraved mug (guaranteed to become a collector’s item) and the canteen will be stocked. We have a $2 sausage sizzle after racing on Saturday and breakfast on Sunday. What more could you want?
We look forward to racing with you on 18 and 19 March.
