Over the weekend of 10th & 11th November 2018 the Perth Dinghy Sailing held it’s Annual “Perth Waters Coaching Regatta.”

The Regatta is designed primarily for the coaching of sailors whilst in racing conditions. The event is run by holding 10 short course races over the Saturday & Sunday. Races are held in the both the mornings and afternoons, this enables the competitors to get the opportunity to sail in the morning soft breezes, then in the afternoons with the steady sea breeze.

The PDSC this year engaged a number of our own homegrown sailing Championship as the Coaches, who have passed on their experiences & knowledge to the competitors.

This year’s Coachers were led by our Race Officer – Warren Drew, who has now been involved for the past 4years. Warren apart from doing the RO duties on the start boat also did coaching of the competitors and making sure they all were up on the start line in the best positions.

The coaches s were: Brien Hennessy, Russell Hanrahan, Emilia Horn, Dale Oakley, Ian Furlong & Denis Jones. All these Coaches are highly regarded within the WA sailing community.

This year event attracted 50 competitors in Open Bic, 29ers, Flying Ants, Cherubs, Sabres and 1 Javelin. Whilst the PWCR is based on coaching we also do run a Regatta, so the winners were:

Sabres:                                                                      
1) Lost Horizon – Andrew Rose                              
2) Dragonfly – Heidi Miller                                      
3) Double Trouble – Narelle Thomas

The Management Committee of the Perth Dinghy Sailing Club would like to thank all the volunteers who gave up their time and assisted over the weekend

The 2018 Sabre Sailing Association Western Australia “Opening Days Series” will be held on various dates (with five heats and the best of four heats to count). The races will be conducted by East Fremantle Yacht Club (EFYC), Safety Bay Sailing Club (SBYC), Maylands Yacht Club (MYC), Royal Perth Yacht Club (RPYC) & Perth Dinghy Sailing Club (PDSC) on their Opening Days. The purpose of the regatta is to help promote the Sabre class at Yacht Club Opening Days and encourage participation in the Metro Club Opening Day races.

The organising authority for this series is the Sabre Sailing Association of Western Australia Inc, however each Club will provide its own Sailing Instructions for the race which it will control.

It should be noted that Clubs will set their own club courses on the day. Entrants will need to ensure that they familiarize themselves with courses before starting.
