Melbourne fleet has just started back up with the weekly club racing after a very busy and successful few months hosting firstly the Australian Championship back in January, and then the Victorian State titles a little more recently.

We continue with the Saturday sailing until the end of May then have both June and July off to get the brownie points up.

The Melbourne Fleet has several boats planning to go the Mooloolaba for the Australasian Championship. To date, Tango, Sinister and Should’a Gone Left Wayne are confirmed.

There are also four boats off to the 2016 World Championships in Cowes this September. Past Champion, Triad, will be joined by Tango, That’s Life, Should’a Gone Left Wayne.

That's Life at the VIC States will be off to Cowes
