Brisbane Etchells Fleet Captain Jason Hawkins has prepared an update covering a few items on the Etchells Calendar:


Hi Everyone,

Breakfast this Saturday

Don’t forget! Breakfast at the hardstand this Saturday morning @ 0830 to kick off the season, we would love to see everyone there. Please let us know by the end of today (if you haven’t already) if you are planing to come down.

Racing Rules Refresher

We are pleased to announce that as part of our monthly training/education initiative, Brisbane Etchells will host a Rules of Sailing Session/Refresher. Highly experienced protest committee juror Jan Kemp will present 5 most common protests that end up in the jury room & the latest rules updates that catch out skippers on the race track. There is sure to be some vibrant discussion during this session.
