RPAYC SheSails Regattas

Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club is pleased to introduce SheSails events to its annual yachting program. The SheSails regatta’s are a fantastic opportunity for female sailors to participate in one-design racing 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.

On Sunday, teams will participate in some short course racing, with support from RPAYC coaches and mentors.

An entry must be completed for each day: Development Training by individual sailors, and the Open One-Design Regatta by the team skipper.
