Saturday's are all about a bit of fun competition, and very different from our Twilight Sailing.
Most races start at 2pm, almost perfectly timed with our incredible southwest sea breeze.
Most boats use spinnakers and even change sails during the races due to changing weather conditions.
It can be fast paced (weather dependant) and generally, more crew work is required (compared to Wednesday evenings), it gets the adrenalin pumping and most days you come home feeling like you've sailed hard.
KBSC hold a range of different series over the sailing season including 3 sponsored consistency race series, extended (12noon start) and inner bay racing, championship races and some overnight cruises.
Skippers are always on the lookout for keen, fit crew to join their teams and experience isn’t always necessary.
Register your interest on our crew page, leave your details on our crew whiteboard at the Clubhouse or pop down to the Clubhouse on Wednesday nights, Friday nights or Saturdays and ask to speak with our Membership Officer, Rear Commodore Sailing or a Class Captain.
To race on Saturdays you will need to join as a Senior or Crew member (you can try first, maximum 6 races, $15 each), we do offer crew membership which covers all sailing fees for Wednesday and Saturday sailing. This also gives you access to all Clubs facilities, gives you 20% off beverages and allows you to invite guests etc. down for a drink and meal.
The Koombana Bay Sailing Club canteen and bar is open for Saturday lunch so bring the family down and enjoy the view before you head out for the afternoon.
Non-members and guests are always welcome. Non-Members must have registered for a SailPass before heading out to a boat.
A SailPass is a means by which a Non-Member can go sailing at our Club – it’s a form of introductory or short term sailing membership (for a day).
Register here for a SailPass.
KBSC Social Members and Affiliate Members (Members from other AS Clubs) will need their Australian Sailing Number to register to sail in any KBSC event. Find your AS Number here.
