Avalon Sailing Club:

 Drop off and Pick up:

There are 2 main locations for unloading boats. Parking Marshals from ASC will be available at entrances to both locations from 7:30am, to guide and direct visitors.

  1. Avalon Sailing Club, via Old Wharf Reserve
  • The road down through Old Wharf Reserve is very narrow and windy, and unsuitable for trailers at this busy time. Boats arriving on cars with roof racks may be unloaded on the Old Wharf Road.
  • Please note that once unloaded, you may be directed back up to Hudson Parade for parking.
  1. Clareville Boat Ramp, via Delecta Ave
  • Parking is available in Delecta Ave for free, or in the adjacent “pay and display” parking area.
  • We will aim to keep the area beside the boat ramp clear for trailer parking. Wherever you park your trailer, in order to avoid a fine from the ranger please park it parallel or angled slightly out (but not in), and detached from your car if the combined length is over 7m.
  • Please ensure access to private properties is respected at all times.
  • Boats rigged at Clareville Beach will be towed by ASC Marshals for storage on the deck. Boat racks will also need to be transported.
  • This ramp is also suitable for the launching of small spectator boats.

Loading after racing on Sunday will be the reverse procedure.

Overnight Storage:

  • Boats are expected to be left on the deck for overnight storage.
  • The deck will be floodlit and the gates locked.
  • Please take care to secure small items.

Deck Management:

  • Please clearly label your rack for easy identification in a crowd!
  • Rigging space is limited so sailors are asked to follow direction from the deck marshals, keep access lanes clear and be tolerant and courteous to the needs of others.
  • To avoid traffic jams, please let boats near the side deck and pontoon lanes launch first.
  • Hoses and water cans will be available for washing down boats.

Briefings:

  • Race briefings will be conducted in the upper level club room at ASC.
  • Official notices will be posted on the upper level notice board at the club.
  • Sign on and sign off sheets will be located in the vicinity of the Official Noticeboard.
  • Flag signals will be made from the flagmast on the southern end of the Club's upper verandah

Canteen:

The canteen will be operating throughout the weekend, serving gourmet pies, sausage rolls, rolls, home-baked goodies, snacks and drinks.

Breakfast - Bacon & egg rolls will be available on the deck on Saturday and Sunday mornings.

Lunch - Orders will be taken each morning for “Lunch Bags”. Ordering will help us to manage food efficiently.
A variety of other food and drinks will be available for purchase at the canteen.

Sausage sizzle for sailors - on Saturday and Sunday after the racing.

Happy Hour – Nibblies Platters along with beer, wine and other drinks and will be on sale in the afternoon.

Dinner – The BBQs will be fired up for cooking your own sausages and kebabs, which can be purchased from the canteen. Menus from local takeaway restaurants will also be available.

Post-Racing Special Treat:

As a special treat, we are excited to announce that about 5 Couta Boat skippers have generously volunteered to take sailors out for a sail after racing on Saturday. These beautiful heritage timber boats will provide a wonderful experience for our young sailors, and we encourage them to stay around after pack up for the opportunity.

Spectator Boats:

A string line should be available off the club for inflatables and small boats to moor free of charge.

Moorings:

There are currently a couple of deepwater swing moorings available near the clubhouse, for a minimal casual mooring fee. These are suitable for boats up to 36 foot long. Anchorage is also available outside the mooring area. For further details, please contact Valerie as per details below.

Accommodation:

Sleeping overnight on the Saturday night will be permitted for a minimal fee of $20 per person. This will be very basic, upstairs on the open floor of the ASC clubhouse, and there are no guarantees about when everyone else will be gone. Please supply your own mattress and sleeping bag. The upstairs toilets, showers and change rooms will be accessible.

REASONS FOR SAILING A SPIRAL DINGHY AT AVALON SAILING CLUB

 

  1. A family friendly class:

    1. Well-built, low cost dinghy that won't cost much to keep sailing.
    2. The Spiral Association holds a stock of those spare parts that are not readily available from the yachting shops.
    3. Association members are happy to give practical advice on repairs to rig and hull.
    4. Low cost membership fees and race fees
    5. Events are held at clubs with camping facilities to keep accommodation costs down
    6. National Championships are a three day event, held to coincide with the Australia Day holiday.
    7. State Championships are held in March or April over one weekend

  2. New Spirals are built by renowned boat builder, Mark Thorpe, at his Cromer factory.

  3. The Spiral Association is managed by an active committee whose first priority is our members.
  4. Friendly competition is the objective of the Spiral Class. Our raison d'étre "Competitive on the water but friendly off the water"

  5. There are 8 Divisions in the Spiral Fleet at National & State Championships, with a separate Trophy for each Division, to encourage racing within each race.

  6. A "gentle" entry for teenagers to an adult sailing class.

  7. There is even a small-sail version for lighter entrants to the class, the Spiral 36

  8. Ideal entry to higher performance sailing class for kids coming out of Bic, MJ or perhaps even a Flying 11.

  9. As a similar type of dinghy, the Spiral offers a lighter (and easier) entry to the Laser.

  10. Ideal boat for novice adults wishing to learn to sail.

  11. The Spiral Association provides training:
    1. For mid level and beginner sailors – By Spiral Association members with training qualifications
    2. For our top sailors - By nationally renowned coaches.

Dinghy Class Info

2013F11Nata 184 -small

 

ASC has a progression of centreboard classes to suit all levels and ages. The Flying Eleven is designed as high performance racing skiff suitable for older junior sailors. It is an excellent follow-on boat for Optis, Sabots, Manly Juniors & other junior classes. The Flying 11 class is very strong around Australia, with National regattas attracting fleets of over 100 boats. In the last few years alone, over 100 new boats have been launched - a statistic unmatched by most other dinghy classes. High performance sailing is fast becoming the goal of a great many dinghy sailors with the appearance of 49ers as an Olympic class. Racing is competitive with many previous sailors going on to become world or Olympic Games champions in other classes. The Flying Eleven is a logical step in the transition between junior classes and prepares young sailors for classes such as Cherubs, 420s, 470s, 29ers, Moths, 13s or even 49ers.

ASC have had a long association with the Flying 11 class, having produced National and State Champions.

Typically the helmsman is aged 12~18 and the crew 10~18 years old. Combined crew weight is usually in the 75-115Kg range. While sailors typically come to Flying 11's from other feeder classes, ASC do support new sailors (in an appropriate age/weight range) learning to sail in their own Flying 11.

 

Flying 11's are integrated with Avalon's sailing program in multiple ways:

Coaching suitable to skill levels is provided at all levels, using both internal and external coaching resources.

We race in a combined fleet on Sunday afternoons with RPAYC and BYRA and usually have 8-10 Flying 11's in each race.

There is some scope to store your boat at ASC (fees apply) and there is an active 2nd hand market for Flying 11s so you should be able to purchase one that would suit your budget. If you'd like to find out more, then please contact the Class Captain below:

MJ-ASC-20121209-036 -small

ASC has a progression of centreboard classes to suit all levels and ages. The Manly Junior (MJ) is a double handed junior dinghy that offers performance and a great platform both as an introduction to sailing as well as for development of advanced sailing and racing skills. Racing is competitive with many previous sailors going on to become world or Olympic Games champions in other classes. The skill level shown at a State or National event is high with racing being completed in up to 25 knots (46 km/h) of wind.

ASC have had a long association with the Manly Junior class, having produced multiple National and State Champions.

Typically the helmsman is aged 10~14 and the crew 7~11 years old. It is amongst the smallest of classes with a "full rig": mainsail, jib and spinnaker. Combined crew weight is usually in the 40-90Kg range. The MJ is a good alternative to the O'pen BIC for those who are smaller, or lighter, for their age group.

MJ's are integrated with Avalon's sailing program in multiple ways:

  Group   Sailing Type

Coaching suitable to skill levels is provided at all levels, using both internal and external coaching resources.
