Hi
I am a new member in Melbourne and only started to get back to sailing after the last 20 years exploring Australia on land. Recently purchased a Ross 780 for the family to learn to sail and then get back to some racing into the future. Having sailed mainly on the east coast, Brisbane and Sydney, I am new to Victoria waters so everything is very new and with a young family we will slowly get up to speed. I look forward to the Trailable Yachts Season Opening Weekend on Sunday as I will try to attend to get a few tips as I have never had a TS before.

Regards
Cameron

Melbourne Trailables seem to be the racing club for Trailer Sailers on the bay. They have a good overlap with our membership here, so most of their events seem to get announced here.

For family sailing, Paynesville on the Gippsland Lakes is a brilliant starting point. Bayside Trailerables are a different, cruising oriented club, who frequently sail the lakes, again with lots of members here.

Welcome aboard!

If we are spruiking clubs the Hartley 18-21 club has many non Hartley boats (Farrs, Sunmaids etc) and now has an extensive cruising calender starting with a weekend cruise in October on the bay. Just google the club name to get to the website and contact details or send me a message (pm) via this forum.

And dont forget Warneet Yacht Club, we even have mast up storage available at very competitive rates for members, sure beats packing down after every sail
