SheSails Regattas

SheSails Regattas

Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club is pleased to introduce a two new regatta to its annual sailing program. The SheSails Training Regatta and Open Regatta are a fantastic opportunity for female sailors to participate in one-design race training onboard the RPAYC fleet of Elliott 7 keelboats, with a focus on having fun, developing skills, and meeting new people.

RPAYC has a strong history with supporting women’s sailing, beginning with our introductory sailing courses right through to our Centreboard racing, Youth Development squads, and successful SheSails Twilight Series.

 

SheSails Open Regatta

The SheSails Open Regatta is the perfect opportunity for teams to prepare themselves for the ‘Steering the Course’ Women’s Sailing Festival to take place in October. RPAYC will host a one-design regatta race day on Sunday 10 October 2021 as part of this World Sailing initiative. 

The event is open to female sailors with sailing experience, and current and past participants of RPAYC Discover Sailing courses. RPAYC courses include the 4-week Start Crewing, Start Helming and Start Skippering courses. Following this, any other participants will be invited to enter.

Participating sailors can choose to form their own team with other event participants, or request to be allocated to a team and meet new crewmates!

Teams will participate in some short windward / leeward course racing.
