Welcome to the 2018/19 Sabot Sailing Season!

Whether you are finding out about how your kids can get into sailing or you’re a seasoned Sabot Sailor planning your preparation for the Nationals, there is a lot of fun to be had in the 2018/2019 season which starts this month.

The list of champion Olympic sailors who started their sailing career in Sabots is a long one. This year we hope to produce many more with our structured learn to sail and learn to race programs. Our Clubs’ programs are designed to help boys and girls 8 to 16yrs improve their skills and confidence as they work up to regular weekend racing and beyond.

Covering all points of the compass our most active Clubs (Drummoyne, Lane Cove, Narrabeen and Vaucluse) all provide great opportunities to get into sailing and progress up to Nationals level.

In addition to supporting our Clubs, we run and support an exciting list of inter-club regattas for kids at all levels to participate in throughout season.

This year’s program

  • NSW Youths run by Australian Sailing and hosted by Lake Macquarie Yacht Club this October long weekend
  • Round 1 of the NSW State titles will this year be hosted by Lake Macquarie Yacht Club in 17th and 18th November 2018
