Sail Melbourne

The 2023 Sail Melbourne is about to kick off. There are a lot of people arriving at the club with boats and kit and there is an amazing atmosphere already. The regatta formally kicks of on the 14th and runs to the 18th.
Please remember that during this time the is no vehicle access to the club and the carparks. Any cars in the carparks do need to be removed by Wednesday morning please to allow us to store the regatta fleet.
All swimmers please be careful in the pond and channel as there will be a lot of traffic which will have trouble staying clear of you.
Hope we see you down at the club to enjoy the atmosphere. There is still the opportunity to help out as beach marshals . Please see the sailing office if you can help
