In each of the current classes the Club offers weekly handicap and scratch racing. Handicaps are allocated to each boat according to a fixed time knockdown system, in which the handicap winner of each race loses three minutes from their handicap for the next race, second place loses two minutes and third place loses one minute. The maximum handicap for each class is 30 minutes.

Annual pointscore competitions are conducted for:

  • Club Championship – based on scratch results over a series of five races

  • Handicap Pointscore – based on handicap results throughout the season

  • Fastest Time Pointscore - based on scratch results throughout the season

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.
