Summer and Winter Series

For the Woollahra Sailing Club sailor, the Summer and Winter Series are two of the most significant events in the club calendar. These feature a series of races run over a number of weekends, with points being awarded doe finishing positions, much like you may have seen in the Olympics.

First Place scores one point, second place two points and so on, with the results aggregated over the course of the competition and the sailor with the lowest overall score declared the winner. The rules also allow a stipulated maximum number of a competitor’s  poorest results to be discarded, rewarding the passionate sailor who turns up week in week out.

Saturday Racing

Saturday racing is reserved for the Moth Class. It was sailors of these types of boat that founded our club in the 1950’s., though technical advances mean the vessel of today has changed significantly from those early days.

Originally a cheap home built sailing boat designed to plane, now it is a commercially produced vessel designed to hydroplane on foils. Many of the older design Moths still exist and are fun recreational boats but slower than their successors, which have been described as “Formula 1 on water”.
