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.
