Goolwa Aquatic Club's Sailing group held a Club Championship round on Sunday, November 17.

Each of the three divisions (Senior, Pacer and Junior fleets) sailed three races.

Much like the previous week, winds were light and variable, with finesse and an eye for wind shifts rewarded.

Local Sabre sailor Helen Bowlden took first place on handicap in the senior fleet, with talented young sailor Izaak Hart taking second place in his Laser 4.7 and Graham McLeay placing third, also in a Sabre.

In the Juniors, Kelly Steele took first place ahead of Evelyn Wilson in second, with young brother Alex Wilson having a great day on the water to take third; all in Optimist dinghies.

In the Pacers, Kairo and Terry Quilliam took first place ahead of Mal Hart and Peter Robinson and Brioney and David Wilson.

Goolwa Aquatic Club Sailing is running entry-level learn-to-sail classes aimed at kids in the seven to fifteen years age range in January next year. It is a great way to start in the sport.

Classes run for four days (morning or afternoon sessions), with a choice of two weeks.

A number of places are still available, although classes are filling fast.

See the club's website (www.goolwaaquaticclub.com/sail-training-program) for details.
