 Lane Cove 12ft Sailing Skiff Club welcomes visitors. We are happy to record your times and offer the same surveillance from our Response Boats as we do our own boats, however, to do this we need your help.

Before the start advise the PRO of your details – boat, skipper and crew names. If you do not cross the finish line please either notify one of our Response Boats or the PRO as soon as you possibly can (otherwise we will be searching the foreshores for you).

Please record the Club phone numbers in your phone 9427 2276 or 0467 015 336 (phone or text)

Of course if you intend to sail on a regular basis we would very much prefer you register your boat and join the Club making yourself eligible for pointscores and trophies.
