Around the Sound

On Water Sailing Ocean Racing Around the Sound
The Around the Sound race is an inshore sheltered race held in Cockburn Sound in the vicinity of Garden and Carnac Islands.  The race is designed to suit entry level cruiser racers under safety Category 4 (Category 3 for Double Handed) where river based club racers have the opportunity to experience some ocean racing on a course designed to test their sailing proficiency on all wind angles.  The race also presents the opportunity for Blue Water racers to train new crew members in preparation for their offshore race campaigns.  This race often attracts additional entrants who are not necessarily competing for an entire series of races, but wish to get their boats out to sea occasionally.  The boost in casual entrant numbers adds to the ambience of the day race.  
In 2016-17 season, the  “Around the Sound”, sponsored by OH&S Consulting, will be conducted on Sunday 11th December 2016 starting off Fremantle commencing with the Double Handed Division at 0925 hrs.
Trophies will be presented for both IRC and YAH.  Results for this race will count towards the Beneteau Offshore Series.

The Entry Fee is $50 and must be submitted on line using the link below by 1700 hrs Monday 5th December 2016.  Payment is required at time of registration.
