Sunday practice is open to all members and recent trainees (within the last 12 months). The club is open downstairs and a rescue boat is provided. Sailors are free to sail and practice as they wish. Sailors may hire a ESC fleet OziOpti, 4.7 Laser or RS Feva training dinghies, or you can bring your own boat. It runs on Sundays from October – December in the first half of the season and January – April in the second half of the season from 9.00am-12.00pm.
There is no enrollment or course fee required, however it is $10 per session to hire a club boat.
