Come one and all to the annual Xmas party at Williamstown Sailing Club on Saturday 14 December, 7pm start.

Tickets Prices: Adults $30, Family $70 and individual child $10.

Dinner will be a Gourmet BBQ, salads, baked potatoes and desert.  Feel free to bring your own pre-dinner nibbles if you wish. NO BYO though drinks are available from the bar.

Tickets will be presold for the event – no last minute tickets on the day, so get in early, grab some friends, book a table or just an individual ticket and we will make sure you join with others to enjoy the night.

Don’t miss out – book and pay at the canteen on Saturdays. If you don’t come to the Club on Saturdays you can book by email to social@williamstownsailingclub.org.au and pay by direct debit into the Club bank account: BSB: 633-000, Account No: 149266439.  Please provide your family name and number of tickets with payment details in your email.

We are making this year’s event a bit of a fundraiser; A Xmas raffle for sure! We are also asking you to help in some way for the event– it might be set up the upstairs area on the Friday night (I know it’s Friday 13th but it will be appreciated), help put up the Xmas decorations, assist in the kitchen for a short period on Saturday, maybe help with food service on the night, or just help with collecting and stacking dishwashers etc. Getting members to lend a hand is a great way to mingle and get to know other members whilst keeping our costs down. It’s about us all doing a little.

Please contact Lois any time via to social@williamstownsailingclub.org.au or on her mobile if you want to help in any way with the event.

Come and enjoy the best location in Melbourne to enjoy a Xmas party with fellow members and our great city view.

Lipton Cup Success

Lipton Cup – WSC Hosting Success

The Lipton Cup was held on the weekend of Saturday 16 & Sunday 17 November 2019. It was fantastic that our Club could once again participate in jointly hosting the OTB division this year.

It was also fantastic that our sailors, not only participated, but won in their divisions. I wish to thank Graham Taylor for stepping up and running our efforts, along with Michael Lambiris as scorer and the fantastic support of the race rescue team. To our Club’s credit, we managed the racing for 66 boats over 6 races on the weekend. This will grow interest in sailing at our Club and develop all our race management skills, and mixed fleet sailing skills with other Clubs.
