|SAILING - OVERVIEW
Palm Beach Sailing Club was formed in 1963 as Pittwater Catamaran Club - a club for off the beach Catamaran sailors.
The Club sails from Sandy Beach, Palm Beach at the end of Sand Point Lane, a picturesque soft sand beach with easy access to the waters of Pittwater and Broken Bay at the northern end of Sydney's Northern Beaches.
Over the years members representing our club have gone on to competing and winning at the top National and International levels. Palm Beach Sailing Club members have arguably won more Olympic Medals than any sailing or yacht club in Australia dominating the Olympic Tornado Class for a number of years. Our members have also been strong in the international Hobie Cat classes.
A sample of some of the gongs currently claimed by members are:
Yachting Australia Catamaran Youth Champions
Australian Women's Hobie 16 Champions
Queensland Hobie 18 State Champion
No. 2 Hobie 18 Worlds
6th IYAF World Titles Women's' Catamaran Class
ISAF Youth Worlds 2006 - H16 4th
ISAF Youth Worlds 2007 - H16 3rd
Hobie Dragoon 2006 World Champion.
Womens European H16 Champion 2007
The club is not just about winning and champions, it is about a group of people coming together to enjoy their leisure time. The club's philosophy is to make all members welcome and to do all it can to ensure that everybody gets the most out of their Catamaran sailing experience.
