Dinghy Racing

Evening racing is the mainstay of club dinghy competition over the summer, without any tidal constraints for launch and recovery we sail every Wednesday and Friday evening from late April to mid-September (A, B and C Series). On Fridays we continue with a late afternoon D Series until late October. Sunday morning racing commences mid-September with the Autumn Series and Winter Series, followed by the Aussie Summer Series from January to March. Normally one race per day with a target duration of 60-90 minutes.
