Australian 18 footers (“A18s”)
We have a symbiotic relationship with the A18s, which requires us to provide volunteers most Sundays during summer on water and in our canteen. We also provide support each year for the JJ Giltinan championships, the regatta that determines the 18 Foot Skiff World Champion.
The rampant consumption of sandwiches, pies, drinks, etc by each of the A18 teams and their community helps our club financially. The A18s folks man our response boat “Bergman”, but we need to ‘man’ response boat “Paul Adam.”
Sydney High School (“SHS”) and Sydney High School Sailing Association (“SHSSA”)
We had a symbiotic relationship with SHS/SHSSA where we provided storage and facility to the boys from the school who sailed each week. The relationship ended in 2016/17 when SHS decided another storage facility better suited their needs.
