Big Brighton Welcome to the Australian Sailing Team

Over the last two days there has been a lot of movement in the yard at RBYC, all in preparation to welcome the Australian Sailing Team and their support staff.

Over 30 boats have made the trip to the club from all over Australia and include 49ers, 470s, lasers, Nacra’s, and Finn’s. The group includes a number of Olympians, and some aspiring Olympians too. The group will be here for the week leading up to Sail Melbourne, which shall be hosted at the club from Nov 29 – Dec 3. Their week includes a number of team meetings and a busy on water schedule, creating a great buzz around the club in the next week.

It will be great to have our young aspiring athletes to rub shoulders with the countries best and see the qualities and attitude needed to make it to the top of their  sport.

A big welcome to the Australian Sailing Team from all at RBYC!
