Learn more about your boat, how to sail it and tactics. Racing is a great way to improve your skills and get more from your sailing by competing against other similar boats in a friendly and supportive environment.
We have one primary racing event each year, the annual Sonata Regatta. We also encourage members to participate in other events, sometimes in conjunction with an organised SYA cruise.
The 2022 Sonata Regatta was held at Geelong Trailable Yacht Club (GTYC) at St. Helens (North Geelong) on the 19 & 20 February.
The Regatta is open to any Trailable yacht that is owned by a current SYA member. The race format comprises ’round the buoys’ racing on Saturday with a sternchaser race on Sunday. This is an excellent opportunity to gain experience and learn more about racing. It is a fun weekend for all members who participate with the emphasis on good sailing and socialising.
Our thanks to the Geelong Trailable Yacht Club for hosting the event again.
