Welcome to the Townsville Sailing Club

 What's on this weekend?

This section will update by Thursday each week with details of this coming weekends events. 

This Sunday 20th July is a Championship round with two heats planned. Racing starts at 1:00pm.
The junior fleet is on duty this weekend so parents, carers and friends of the Sabot and Bic sailors should email jdblaw@ozemail.com.au
or phone 0427166 248 to put their hands up for start boat, mark boat, rubber boat duty and canteen duty …. Come on – it is your turn !
What will be different this weekend is that we plan to have gate starts. 
A gate start is where one competitor, at the start time, sails on port tack away from the start boat and all other competitors start by passing between the port tack boat and the start boat.  
Results will be announced on the lawn after the race. Stay and enjoy a drink.

If you are able to assist the club in any way, please email the club at townsvillesailingclub@gmail.com
