The January Regatta clinic is promising to be one of the more rewarding and fun week of sailing most of us have had. Instead of the Australian Championship which has been cancelled due to travel restrictions, the Australian 5O5 Association is organising a week of Racing and Coaching.

Brighton + Seacliff Yacht Club, Adelaide.

18th -23rd January 2021.

The  main objective is to provide an opportunity for all attendees to improve their sailing ability. Whatever your current standard.

In addition to racing there will be tuning sessions, help with boat set up, workshops on racing tactics, sail set up steering and crewing techniques, reading the wind and answers to any questions any attendee may have.

There will be coaches on hand and presentations from those who know including top 5o5 helms and crews. You will also get to swap places and sail with the best to get onboard and real time help and advice.

Billeting is available with the local 5o5 guys if you need.

The official program is the five week days from Monday 18th to Friday 22nd leaving the weekends for travel. For those arriving earlier or leaving later there will may be club racing and other opportunities to sail and socialise. In addition to the local fleet. boats are coming form Sydney, lake Macquarie, Melbourne, Brisbane and, subject travel restrictions, from Perth.
