Cherub States at Drummoyne

We’ve seen Belmont 16s celebrate 100 years of sailing on Belmont Bay, a new Cherub constructed and launched in Sydney, and scores of new and returning racers. What could happen next at our Drummoyne Sailing Club round of State Championships?


Regatta Housekeeping and Measurement:
It’s that time of year again!

This is just a friendly reminder that the first round of the NSW Cherub 2022/23 State Championships will occur in just under two weeks at Drummoyne Sailing Club. Keep your eyes peeled for more details on club facilities and courses to follow.

Please be sure to get your entries in via the link below so that you don’t miss out on racing on the 22nd and 23rd of October. Remember that whole series entry closes on FRIDAY Oct. 21st at 11:59 pm.

Measurement Housekeeping

If you have a new sail wardrobe this season, be sure to make sure it complies with the Cherub Class Rules before States. Our NSW Measurer, James Glassock, will be measuring sails at the following dates and times:

9:00 – 11:00 am, Saturday October 15th 2022, at Lane Cove 12ft Sailing Skiff Club.
9:00 – 11:00 am, Sunday October 16th 2022, at Drummoyne Sailing Club.

If you are local to the Sydney region, please try to come along to get any new gear measured at your local club this weekend.

For sailors outside of Metropolitan Sydney, a session will be run before our first round of State Championship racing at Drummoyne Sailing Club. If you intend to utilise this period, please be courteous and arrive to see James with ample time before you need to be rigging.
