NB Sailsports Laser Winter Series
All Laser sailors are cordially invited to compete in the NB Sailsports Laser Winter Series.
This is a series of short races 3 per day held at 5 venues; Middle Harbour Amateur Sailing Club, Woollahra Sailing Club, Belmont 16ft Skiff Club, Gosford Sailing Club and Double Bay Sailing Club.
The individual clubs will be the organising authority for each of the five venues.
The format is designed to give everyone the opportunity to get some pre-season racing in a variety of conditions at several venues. The earlier start at some of the venues is an attempt to catch the best of the winter winds. There will be three races each day with a total of 12 with 9 to count towards the series result.
NB Sailsports are the sponsor of the series with the main prize being a free trade in of your old boat for a brand new Laser. Each race completed gains the participants a raffle ticket, the more races you complete, the greater your chances of being the holder of the winning ticket that will be drawn at the final event at Double Bay Sailing Club. Other prize draw prizes include; new spars, sails, tillers and ropes.
NB will have their van at the venues to assist sailors to upgrade their gear. New; ropes, sails, spars and repair kits will be available with Mitch Buckingham able to give advice and provide assistance. NB can also arrange bookings for hull touch-ups and repairs and of course take orders for new boats if your old one is not up to scratch.
