Club Moorings in Pittwater
Avalon Sailing Club hold a quantity of club moorings in Pittwater, located near to our home at Avalon.
Mooring availability is currently: AVAILABLE
Koolong and Blue Water Shield Race #1 Results
On Sunday we experienced a wide range of conditions – sun, cloud, rain, thunder, no wind, a (mild) southerly front and then not much wind. A total of fourteen yachts participated, with 6 in the Koolong and 8 in the Blue Water Shield. Quite a few yachts got caught in a hole on the right side on the way up Pittwater. It paid to be more on the middle/left. After that, the shifting wind conditions meant opportunity for some and headaches for others.
Quartet Bowl Race #1 Results
On Sunday it was wet, cold and there was no wind. Despite the conditions, the crews of eleven intrepid yachts participated in Race #1 of the Quartet Bowl. We raced the 11.8Nmi course #33 – K, J, K. The yacht coordinator sensibly applied the ‘mercy rule’ and the race was shortened to finish at the first ‘K’ mark.

Winter Series Race #2 Results
Last Sunday it was Race #2 of the Winter Series. A total of 10 yachts participated. We welcomed a new entrant Poppyseed from RMYC, a 26 foot Paul Whiting Quarter Tonner cruising design, helmed by Klaus Keck.
The approach taken to handicapping at Avalon Sailing Club is to handicap yachts based on personal performance (using elapsed times), rather than class based boat handicaps (using rig based measurements). Personal performance based handicaps have the benefit of encouraging participation, as race results are based on how well you sailed in a race compared to your ‘normal’ performance. This seems to fit in well with ASC’s motto of “Fostering, encouragement, promotion, teaching, and above all, enjoyment of sailing on the waters of Pittwater”.
