The final round of the NSW Cherub State Championships for 2022/23 will be held at Port Kembla Sailing Club on the 4th and 5th of March. Please continue reading for all important information.
A Change to Sailing Instructions:
The Cherub Association’s standard yellow inflatable marks will not be used at this coming weekend’s round of the State Championships. Instead, the course will be laid with three orange conical inflatable marks. The start line will be laid with a yellow mark at the pin end and an additional red ‘cherry’ will be laid as a distance mark for the top mark. This will be clarified for all competitors at our Sailor’s briefing on Race Day One at Port Kembla Sailing Club.
