Sydney, Australia – 10 June 2020 – The Women’s Laser Regatta, hosted by Double Bay Sailing Club, will be held on September 26 and 27, 2020, being the first Australian Laser regatta of the 2020-21 season.
After the success of the 2018 and 2019 regattas, the organising team of Clare Alexander and Christine Patton are back to present the annual event for women Laser sailors of all ages and abilities.
Sailing, training and competition in all classes has been affected by the COVID-19 restrictions, so the first Laser regatta in Australian waters will certainly generate excitement in the community and start the season on a high.
The event format will be adapted to the Public Health advice at the time and will include two days of racing on Sydney Harbour, sailing workshops/clinics, group dinner, and prizegiving.
“This event is a highlight in our racing calendar and is an integral part of what we are about as a club – creating access to sailing and promoting participation and improvement in the Laser class,” said Andrew Cox, Commodore of Double Bay Sailing Club.
