As the temperature starts to drop, there’s still plenty of sailing available around the country.

In Sydney, the CYCA Winter Series kicks off this weekend with the opening Jill McLay Ladies Day race. Commencing in May is the HBYC Brass Monkeys Series on Port Phillip Bay, and in Perth, the SOPYC 2018 Frostbite Series.

There are also plenty of opportunities for Women. The inaugural MHYC Women’s Regatta is being held on Sunday, May 6, the CYCA Winter Series kicks off and concludes with non-pointscore ladies races, and the Australian Women’s Keelboat Regatta is taking place over the June long weekend at RMYS, St Kilda.

These are just a few of the many winter sailing events starting soon. If you’re a new or experienced sailor looking to get out on the water, here are a few of the latest sailing opportunities from around the country.

Available Crewing Positions:

Pascol Paints – Williamstown, VIC
Diamond, 9m, RYCV

The diamond class is a fast, fun and competitive one design class.

Pascol Paints is currently looking for crew as well as new partners interested in a share in the boat to help with ongoing maintenance and race costs, and of course to help race her!

Pascol Paints mainly race the summer Wednesday night twilight series out of Williamstown with a standard 4 crew; two on trapeze, one on main and the skipper. They are also interested in doing the winter series every other Saturday if enough committed crew are available.
