If you enjoyed the bigger fleets at the NB sprint day, consider attending a regatta or two....
DBSC supports and recommends our sailors attend laser regattas. We don't schedule Pointscore or club championships that will clash with official NSW Laser events, (and you'll get average points if you are at another laser event and can't sail).
There's a wide range of ability on show at each regatta, and if you can make it around our racetrack, you'll make it around any regatta. Attending a regatta or two will be good training for when we host the Metropolitain Championships on 7-8 March 2015.
If you have limited leave passes and have to pick and choose, the Commodore's favourite is the State Masters. There is no seperate Australian Masters Championships this season, so the State Masters regatta on 7-8 February will be very well attended by sailors of varying ability and age (35-70ish) from all Eastern states. Good bunch of sailors, good racing on Lake Macquarie and great atmosphere. There's even a pre regatta golf day on the Friday for those without jobs and a predisposition to frustration.
Here's a link to the NSW Laser event website
Also consider Sail Sydney in early December. There are two laser regattas. One for Olympians (literally) from Tuesday - Thursday, and one for open and masters from Friday to Sunday. Finn and Marcus can report on the first regatta, but most of us will be much more comfortable with the weekend sessions. Details here
