|Club's Optimist Sailing Information|
The Junior Club at the Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club is a hive of activity with over 200 members and venue for numerous local, state, national & international regattas. The Clubhouse is the base for all dinghy racing with sailors ranging from 6—75 years of age.
Dinghy sailing is mostly held on Sundays (am or pm) October – April and June – September (fortnightly). The club currently sails; Optimists, 420’s, Mirrors, Lasers, 505’s, 470’s, 29ers, 49ers, Contenders and a new addition for this season is the O’pen BICS - the competitive spirit alive and well in all classes. Each Class has a Fleet Captain who acts as a liaison between the Club and their fleet and provide an important service to ensure that the needs of each Class are being met and are responsible for the allocation of dinghy stor-age racks.
The Junior Club has its own committee headed by a Captain running its own affairs, a strong interest with parents, a social life of events and barbecues which all contribute to making the Dinghy/Junior Clubhouse a popular rendezvous for the youth. The Dinghy/Junior Section is mainly supported through volunteers in various roles; Fleet Captains, Flag Officers, On-Water Support Personnel and Canteen Personnel. In addition we have Coaches and Sailing Support Staff available.
