Laser 50th Anniversary Event DBSC Bay SC 20th June
Double Bay Sailing Club will host a large exhibition of ILCA Laser dinghies sailing on the iconic Sydney Harbour on Sunday, 20 June 2021, to mark the 50th anniversary of Laser/ILCA class. The event was postponed from 30th May due to very unfavourable weather predicted for that day.
The club is inviting anyone who has access to a Laser across greater Sydney and beyond, to participate in this historic event.
Anyone is welcome to launch from DBSC and sail to the start line together, or sail from another club and meet at Farm Cove at 0930h. At the club street parking is available (unrestricted on Sundays) and trailers can be left outside the club.
Participants are invited to attend DBSC after the event for a free BBQ and prize draw. All visitors are welcome and club dollies will be provided for those that sail in.
There will be prizes for entering and participating, including a hull upgrade (donated by PSA) and three new sails (donated by NB Sailsports). You must enter and turn up on the day to be eligible to win (see the Notice of Event for terms and conditions). Thanks to the generous sponsors for donating these prizes.
DBSC are welcoming all (Laser) sailors from far and wide to join the event. If you don’t have a Laser, but would like to join email DBSC and we will see what we can do to help. If you have a laser (or a spare), but are unable to sail it at the event, please email DBSC if you would like to lend it to someone else to sail.

Double Bay Sailing Club Commodore, Andrew Cox, said, “The exhibition will be a visual spectacle, with up to 200 boats sailing en masse against the backdrop of the Harbour Bridge and Opera House, in what we expect will be the largest single fleet of ILCA Laser dinghies ever to sail on Sydney Harbour, and possibly anywhere in the world.”
This is your chance in a lifetime to participate in this 50 year celebration.
