Get your entries in for the Nationals

We'd like to encourage all minnow families, especially those that have never taken part in a minnow regatta before, to join us at Blairgowrie Yacht Squadron for the 38th Minnow Nationals from 8-13 January 2017. 

We know that "Nationals" can sound intimidating, but don't be, in fact it is just about the easiest way to introduce your child to racing their minnow and have them get to know lots of other kids who share a common interest in sailing. 

Novice sailors will sail close to the shore on a separate course from the experienced sailors. We will have plenty of support boats on the novice course to help those that need a bit of extra guidance getting around. On shore we will have a number teenage mentors assigned to each of the novice sailors to help them out with their sailing and any questions they (or you) may have.

So please join us, it really is easy and you and your child will meet lots of others during a fun week at the beach. Sign up at

Here is some video footage of Sabres sailing at Blairgowrie, notice the beautiful clear water!
