Green Fleet:

This year we will running a Junior GREEN FLEET division.  These sailors will be kept separate from the main course areas. Briefing for Green Fleet will be at 10.30am in the undercover briefing area, prior to the invitiation race.

Details about races:

Invitation Race 10.30am Saturday Morning: This is a welcome race for the May Day Regatta prior to the General Briefing. Sign on is compulsory. The invitation race allows all participants to enjoy a small sail to get to know the course, the buoys and starting light sequence. Just a fun race with no points going towards the end results.  Please ask at the Starter's box about Tinaroo's starting light sequence or if you have any other questions.  Information is also in the sailing instructions. 

Shed Boss Twilight Race & Frostbite Race:  These races are just for fun (no points score).  They are centered around the youngsters (and adults) having an enjoyable time out on the water and trying out another boat for new experiences. Please sign on prior, so your name goes into the prize draw. These races are held Saturday twilight and Sunday morning.

There is also a range of club boats for charter, including RS Quests, RS Fevas, O'pen Skiffs and a Catamaran.  Numbers are limited, so book early.
