Entries are expected to flood in for the Oceania and Australian Laser Masters Championships to be sailed out of Royal Geelong Yacht Club on Victoria's Corio Bay from March 13 to 18, 2020. The event is the perfect warm-up for competitors from Australia and around the world who will compete in the World Laser Masters Championships, which start at the same venue just a day later.
Entries for the Oceania and Australian Laser Masters Championships are now open at https://www.trybooking.com/BDYHL
Early Bird Incentive
With a high number of entries expected, organisers of the Oceania and Australian Laser Masters Championships may have to limit numbers. As well as ensuring their entry is accepted, sailors who register before Midnight on November 30 2019 go in the draw for a new Laser sail courtesy of Performance Sailcraft Australia.
PSA has donated two sails, one for Australian entrants and one for overseas visitors, and the winners will be drawn at 8pm on March 14 during the Opening Function at Royal Geelong Yacht Club.
