Palm Beach Sailing Club, (formerly Pittwater Catamaran Club) races
every Saturday from Sand Point, off Iluka Road, Palm Beach.
All catamaran classes are welcome. Racing commences at 1pm, with current
fleet sizes ranging from 10 to 20 boats, consisting of mainly Hobie
16s, Hobie 17s, Hobie 18s, Taipans, A Class and Nacra catamarans. To
date, the club has accumulated more Olympic sailing medals than any
other club in Australia.
Palm Beach Sailing Club caters for both beginner and experienced catamaran
sailors. Experienced members are only too happy to share their knowledge
with new sailors, offering advice on boat rigging and tuning, crew
techniques and racing tactics. New sailors may start sailing by crewing
for an experienced sailor. The club periodically holds Saturday morning
sailing schools, where everything from basic knot tying to advanced
racing techniques are taught.
