Melbourne Sailing is a social networking website which helps skippers find new crew and sailors find new yachts. Yacht owners post racing or cruising events at the website stating their crew requirements. The Melbourne Sailing website emails all members to let them know about the new opportunity to go sailing. With a click of a button those who fit the requirements can join the crew. Sailing is fun and friendly sport and beginners are welcome!
Disclaimer: The organisers of the group cannot accept any liability for any loss or accidents to participants on this activity. Participants should take care, wear suitable clothing and act appropriately in their surroundings.
We invite members to join us next Saturday for racing practice on Galaxy. If you are interested in becoming a regular member of our crew or just want to try out sailing, you are most welcome to come along. Four crew positions are available
GALAXY is 50ft racer/cruiser which normally sails with a crew of between 10 and 14 people.
GALAXY sails club races on Saturdays afternoons and some passage races in the bay. During the summer season, we also race the twilight series on Wednesday evening. On off Saturdays, when we do not race, practice sails are conducted. If you would like to sail with us or just try out a sailing experience on GALAXY join us for this meetup.
Things to note:
If you are not a member at RYCV you will need to allow a little extra time to get a day pass at the yacht club office.
Bring suitable clothes, warm gear based on weather. (Expect temps to be lower than ashore because of wind-chill). Shoes should have soft non-skid soles.
In the event of very strong winds or an unfavorable forecast, the Yacht Club or the skipper may cancel the race. We will endeavor to contact you a.s.a.p. when races are canceled.
Some street parking is generally available in Anne Street. (Off Nanson Place, bay side).
Have fun and enjoy the sail.
