Double Bay Sailing Club hosted the inaugural Women’s Laser Regatta on 8-9th September. It was an event intended to encourage greater female participation in the Laser class, facilitated in an environment that was supportive, informative and fun.


50 women sailors from all over Sydney and beyond attended the weekend-long event, with yoga on the deck, breakfast eggs benedict, expert coaching, inspirational dinner speakers and competitive racing.


Participants ranged from women who had not sailed for 20 years, women who had sailed other classes but never a Laser, women whose children are rising sailing stars, and a strong contingent of those young stars themselves, along with DBSC’s regular women sailors.
