Re Sail Women Skipper & Navigator Race & Novice Race

We are re -sailing the Women Skipper and Navigator's Race at the same time of the Novice Skipper's race when the fleet returns from Geelong on August 21st.

The recent Women Skipper's Race from Blairgowrie started in great conditions but soon sailed into a foggy wind hole.  So let's get the race underway again.  For those who previously entered the race, you can update your entry and crew and if you'd like to still join the race, you can do so too.

If you have a Novice Skipper (see definition below) and also female, you can enter one or both races as they will follow the same route from Geelong to Melbourne.

A novice skipper is defined as:

  • A first-time boat owner who has competed, as boat owner or in any other capacity, in less than 10 yacht or dinghy races in the past 10 years;

OR 

  • A crew member who has no prior experience as a watch leader and who does not normally occupy the role of helms person during a yacht race. 

Entries are open for the Women's race here.  The Novice race entry will be open towards the end of July.
