DBSC is excited to announce we will be hosting our Inaugural Women’s Laser Regatta on September 8-9, 2018. This is a regatta run by women, coached by women and competed in by women and girls of all ages and skill levels. This has not been done before and we are on the cusp of something great for women in sailing and for our club and club members.
For the Regatta to be a success we need women to come and sail, so we need your help to spread the news.
The format of the weekend is an opt in/out for different events. If you know someone that might like to join in but hasn't sailed in while, we will have a coaching session and practise racing on Saturday with our invited coach, Krystal Weir. We even have charter boats for those that don't own a Laser but know how to sail one and want to join in.
Following this will be a dinner with inspirational speakers to share their sailing stories, experiences and insight into different pathways to sailing. Sunday will consist of racing, again with Krystal Weir, and prize giving and celebrations to follow.
Sounds fun, doesn't it?
So, what can you do I hear you ask?
- Download the flyer here, and send it to everyone you know - sailor or non-sailor.
- Print the flyer out and stick it on your office’s kitchen fridge or somewhere hi vis.
- Encourage the women in your life - wives, partners, girlfriends, daughters, sisters, friends to click on this link to register interest - this doesn't cost anything, it just registers interest to keep people informed, start to get an indication of numbers and to ensure our event is run well.
- Volunteer to help - we need your help - men AND women - on and off the water! Link to sign up to volunteer to come.
- Keep an eye out for the pink banner on www.dbsc.com.au as we will be promoting our Regatta supporters and prize donations there.
- Prize donations gratefully received, if you have something that you might like to donate towards the event let Clare Alexander know!
