2016 Race Results **NEW**
Welcome to the Townsville Sailing Club
Championship Race Series #3
SO MANY BOATS!
What a great day on the water! Conditions were great! Competition was great and looked as though everyone one present had a rippa day! See you all next week for another great day of Sailing. ❤⛵ well done to all the volunteers for another outstanding day of racing could not have done it without you. Also great to see so many Green Fleet sailors and parents getting involved. JC
Next up: Cleveland Bay Series on Sun 24 April at 1330, Cats on duty.
Make sure you read the 2016 Sailing Instructions on our website. Especially Section 17 about scoring and points for a series and Section 19 about how to substitute helmsmen or equipment. There are ways to have your boat out there scoring points even if you can’t make it for some (unforgivable) reason!

Introducing John Stannard, he will be Townsville Sailing Club's part time YA instructor conducting Discover Sailing Courses, School and corporate programs. John has ventured up from Brisbane where he gained great experience with sailing clubs and school sailing programs. He has always coach/instructed casually whilst being a lawyer, he has now decided to make instructing his main focus. Please make him welcome.
The Townsville Sailing Club can teach you recreational sailing and award your nationally recognised certificates for that. If you want recognised training for commercial boating so you can work in commercial boating world, we recommend The Navigation Centre in Townsville. They can teach and examine you in First Aid, radio licences and all tickets from deck hand to captain ! Raymond Pincott and his family have been long-time supporters of the Sailing Club and we are grateful to them. (Don’t forget it is also a good place for gifts and books for that boating minded family member or friend ! )
