2021-2022 Season

New sailing season fast approaching and sadly the Covid beast is still with us. As soon as the regulation of the day will allow us, we plan to start sailing again. If you are an old sea dog that has sailed with us before, not too much will change this year. If you are a new to club or looking to join, welcome. Please ask one of the friendly committee members if you have any questions or please email sailing@sibyc.com.au

Obviously we are operating under the new Covid safe requirements so please check out all the information and requirements for Skippers and Crew on the Covid 19 Page of the website.

Check Calendar for details of race dates. Membership, race forms and Sailing Instructions are on the downloads and racing pages.
