It has been a number of years, but the Tasar Association of Victoria (TAV) is taking the 2015/16 Ronstan Tasar Victorian Championships back to Yarrawonga Yacht Club. The Yarrawonga Yacht Club is situated on the edge of Lake Mulwala on the Victorian/ New South Wales border.

Yarrawonga is ideal to attract a large fleet of passionate Tasar sailors due to the facilities and the great climate. There is also an expectation that a number of sailors from neighbouring states will attend, and all are welcome. The event combines exciting racing with great socialising including champagne and cheese after the sailing. All the sailors and families are fully catered for with breakfast/lunch/welcome night and barbecue facilities available.

With affordable camping available, it is guaranteed to be a fun weekend. The TAV boasts a number of world and national champions so the racing will be as intense as the socialising. For more information on all the non sailing activities you can do, including sampling wine and local produce, hiking, golf, cycling go to the Yarrawonga Mulwala information page at
