If you are experienced, have a boat and just want to sail (not to race) then that's fine, but please check with us first so we can give guidance on where to sail so you keep clear of the race but are still in sight of the rescue boat.
Casual sailing can take place during regattas or race days (Sunday through the sailing season). On Sundays, people usually start to gather to race at 11:30 am when the gates are opened and come in about 3:30-4:00 pm. You are welcome to come between these times too.
If you have never sailed but want to try then please get in touch and we can sort something out.
What to bring
Sailing is a water sport, so bring clothes that can get wet, a towel, and a dry change of clothes. SSC has male/female changing rooms, toilet facilities and showers. Wetsuits are needed for smaller boats. You'll also need suitably enclosed footwear and a personal floatation device (PFD) or buoyancy aid. If you forget or don't have one then we may have spares, but you can also check out this advice on selecting the right PFD here: http://www.mysailing.com.au/news/choosing-the-right-pfd).
It is usually sunny and 2 hours of sun reflecting from all angles brings high levels of UV exposure, so bring a high factor sunscreen and suitable headwear.
Oh - and bring some gold coins for the social afterwards. We have various cold drink options, tea coffee and snacks.
