Your Move Conveyancing 87th Australian Championship @ Lane Cove

This Easter Lane Cove 12ftSSC is hosting the Your Move Conveyancing 87th 12ft Skiff Australian Championship. 

With our fantastic new rigging space it is anticipated all 20 of the participants will be rigging at the Club so the atmosphere should be buzzing.

Racing is scheduled to commence no earlier than 2pm on each day with all starts and finishes outside the river and two races back to back.

The Clubhouse will be open from 9:30am and the canteen from 11am with freshly made ham and salad bread rolls and the usual pies and sausage rolls available for lunch each day.

On Friday and Saturday after the race there will be a complementary sausage sizzle for competitors, volunteers and spectators and announcement of the race results.  On Sunday evening we will be dishing up burgers, all welcome and again at no charge, then just as soon as results are finalised the overall presentation of prizes.

Everyone is welcome to come along and enjoy the activities, with good viewing from Clarkes Point or Manns Point. Maybe someone will have a boat you can go out on if you ask around.

The Championship is proudly sponsored by: 

Family Sailing on the Lane Cove River

Located on the upper reaches of the Lane Cove River, the Lane Cove 12 foot Sailing Skiff Club has been running dinghy races for over 100 years.

The Club caters for all ages of Sailors with our Learn to Sail Course graduating over 100 new sailors annually. We sail five classes of boats, Sabots for our Junior Sailors, Flying 11's, Cherubs, Lasers and our lead class the 12 ft Skiff. 

The fun of competitive sailing at Lane Cove is only matched by the active and fun social program that the Club indulges itself in every year. Each Class hosts a dinner throughout the season with the competitive nature of the sailors spilling over to the dinner as each Class vies to outdo the last dinner. At least one social night is held each year. The end of year Presentation Night Dinner is a very heavily attended event for the whole Club to remember the season and enjoy various prizes and recognition. Finally every Saturday after racing all the sailors from the day, the Response Boat crews and other volunteers get together for cold a drink on the  balcony and swap stories.

Lane Cove proudly operates as a 100% Volunteer Club.  From our Committee Members, Canteen, Response Boat crews, Learn to Sail, Race Management everyone is there because of the shared love of sailing and being on the water. We even have our RUST Team, RUST standing for Retired Unemployed Services Team, who meet regularly at the Club to ensure the Sheds, equipment, and support boats are in good shape. We believe that this Volunteer spirit is one of the main reasons for the success that our Club enjoys!
