Elliott 6 Club Racing Program

Register Now and our Sailing Office team will ring you back A.S.A.P to book you in. 

ABOUT
On Saturday afternoons, various RQYS Off the Beach classes head out to the waters between Manly and Green Island, and compete on two separate course areas within their class or division. We run two (2) races each Saturday (subject to weather) and usually crews will leave the dock around 1230 hrs and return by 1600 hrs. The first race starts at 1330 hrs. Club Elliott 6 Racing is a development initiative to facilitate the racing, participating and learning of aspiring sailors. It is important that crew that participate in this program, have an understanding of RQYS Club Racing and have had some experience on an Elliott 6 or another sailing boat where wind knowledge and skill is transferable. Please ensure you read the Notice of Race and the Sailing Instructions as well as the Australian Sailing Racing Rules of Sailing, 2017 – 2020.
