Summer Season Training Fee

There are still some sailors that are yet to pay the Summer Season Training Fee. This fee is $280.00 and for all sailors participating in any training from October 2021 to April 2022. This equates to $40/month. It is imperative that this fee is paid prior to the commencement of Summer Season training.

We would like to acknowledge those who have already paid their fee and thank them for their cooperation

Important Training Information

Please check the scheduled training times in the Training Snapshot (above) and on Team App to confirm the finishing time for each training group during winter.

The Yachting WA Coastal Committee requires on water training to be finished, and all participants back onshore by 7:00pm, until the end of October.

Updates from the Dinghy Committee

Our Dinghy Committee is made up of volunteers who work tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure the Club’s Dinghy Section runs smoothly.

We have developed an Organisation Chart to ensure that our sailors and their parents are aware of who our committee members are, and what their roles entail.
