NSW Metropolitan Qualifier
Saturday 18 & 19 March 2023
Hosted by Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club on 17th & 18th March 2023, the NSW Sailing League is an exciting new one-design series for teams from clubs across New South Wales to battle it out to be the best team in the state!
Like the SAILING Champions League: Asia Pacific, clubs will compete with teams of at least 2 males and 2 females, and in both U22 and Open divisions. Teams will have the opportunity to qualify for the NSW Sailing League final, in April 2023. The NSW Sailing League provides teams with a pathway to compete against teams across the Asia Pacific.
Racing will be short course umpired fleet racing, onboard the RPAYC’s fleet of Elliott 7 keelboats. Teams will rotate/regroup as the event progresses ensuring all teams sail against other teams as many times as practical, followed by a finals series.
