Every Tuesday during the summer in Melbourne Albert Sailing Club run a stern chaser race at 6.00pm on Albert Park Lake. The race has classes from Laser to Opti’s and is convenient for anyone working in the city or inner suburbs. Last nights race was in a shifty south westerly (although steady for the lakes regulars.
South African Optimist Coach to the stars Andre’ even made a guest appearance in an Impulse and showed everyone what it is like to really sail your boat flat. The Lasers had some close racing and the results were close to the end with Anna Phillip in her Opti sailing well to finish up the pointy end.
So if you are close by come down for a race or watch from the side of the lake and cheer us on its as close to sailboat racing you will ever get.
