Australian Women's Keel Boat Regatta 2017 - Qualification event

Australian Women's Keel Boat Regatta 2017 - Qualification event

The AWKBR, held at Royal Melbourne Yacht Squadron is a great women only event, supported over the last few years by teams from DSC

This Sunday the NT team for the 2017 Australian Women’s Keelboat Regatta (AWKR) will be competing in “The Cleaning Lady” in the Ladies Helm as the qualifying race to enter in the AWKR.

The AWKR is the only all female mixed division keelboat regatta in Australia and will be held 10-12 June. The regatta is held on the waters of Royal Melbourne Yacht Squadron in St. Kilda, and will be the NT’s 4th year of participation in the regatta’s 27th history.

This is a wonderful opportunity for female sailors to brush up on their sailing skills, racing knowledge and promote more women into sailing, whilst having fun!

Any ladies who are interested in the regatta should contact Fiona McManus.

Thanks to supporters of the Darwin Sailing Club
