WA Clubs Re-Open for Scheduled Sailing


With radio sailing resuming at various clubs across the state, Champion Lakes has announced their re-commencement from 31 May with a packed schedule catering for IOM, Marblehead & Ten Rater classes.

clboatingWith the relaxation of restrictions with COVID-19, Venueswest has announced that the Champion Lakes Regatta Centre will re-open on Tuesday 26 May. With this, radio sailing for the Champion Lakes club is set to resume from 31 May with Marblehead & Ten Rater Classes racing from 12:30-14:30 with IOM sailors set to hit the water for sailing from 14:30-16:30.

The interest in the Marblehead class with a number of new boats to be joining the fleet shortly along with the recent launch of Barry Donaher's Red Ant F6 has seen the need for the club to cater for multiple classes on a more frequent basis but also allows for the IOM handicap sailing to offer a more relaxed sailing environment for the less competitive sailor. 

Regular sailing has now resumed at a number of clubs including Perth Radio Sailing Club, Emu Lakes, Harrington Waters & Maylands Yacht Club (in the metropolitan area) and for full details of scheduled events and COVID-19 restrictions please contact the applicable club.
