29ers at ASC

ASC has a progression of centreboard classes to suit all levels and ages. The 29er is a double handed skiff that offers high performance and a huge amount of fun. The 29er is listed as a youth boat and while it is certainly a skiff that leads into the 49er if people want to progress that way it is also an excellent boat for adult who are looking for a reasonably priced skiff that's fun to sail. It's built from standard materials (like fibreglass and aluminium) so it's cheap to repair; it's very 'over built' so is considered a bit underpowered by some (not me!) but that makes it strong and robust. This is a boat that you can keep for a long time if that's the sort of sailing that you want to do.

This youtube video shows what it's like to sail a 29er.

This is a class of skiff that suits a combined crew weight of 110-150kg and isn't a class for novice sailors. If you're ready for a challenge this could be a class for you. We race in a combined fleet on Sunday afternoons with RPAYC and BYRA and usually have 5-6 29ers in each race. ASC is committed to class development and provides coaching to all our centreboard classes, 29ers being no exception and we've had some world class coaches help us with our sailing.

There is some scope to store your boat at ASC (fees apply) and there is an active 2nd hand market for 29ers so you should be able to purchase one that would suit your budget. If you'd like to find out more, or go out for a test sail with one of our friendly 29er crews then please get in touch with the Class Captain below:

BIC-small 

ASC has a progression of centreboard classes to suit all levels and ages. The O’pen BIC(BIC) is a modern, single-handed junior skiff that offers great performance and fun. The BIC is a relatively new addition to the to the ASC class line-up (2011), but a class that is generating interest and fast growth across Australia. I t also has an international flowing as a recognised ISAF class.

Typically the helmsman is aged 10~14 and the ideal weight for sailing a BIC is 65Kg. Maximum weight for a BIC is 90Kg. Sailors in the 30-40Kg weight range may find the BIC a challenge in higher winds strengths. There is an O’pen BIC association active in Australia running regattas as well as State and National competitions. ASC hosted the first round of the NSW O’pen BIC Cup in 2012 with 33 sailors competing.

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

Centreboard Trophies

SUBJECTIVE PERPETUAL TROPHIES

The Bellingham Shield

Awarded to an outstanding Club centerboard sailor for being a good sports person, contributing to the running of the Club, inter-club events and good seamanship.

Mr. H.G. Bellingham, a vice-president and patron for many years, donated this Shield originally in 1946.  A notable winner in 1951/52 was David Forbes, for many years the Club VJ Captain and who has probably represented Australia internationally in world championships and the Olympics (winning a gold medal) more than any other yachtsman.  Another winner in 1965/66 was Jim Catts.  The Bellingham family, courtesy of Peter Bellingham, presented us with a restored trophy in 1997.

RESULTS DECIDED PERPETUAL TROPHIES

The Championship Trophy

Awarded to a Skipper for outstanding representation of the Club at National, State & Interclub events.  Our first Club trophy presented by Mr. J.G. Vaughan, the founder of Avalon Sailing Club in 1938.  The Vaughan boys, Les and Harold started sailing their VJ’s in 1933 off Clareville Beach which inspired the local families to share a jig frame and combine to build a small fleet.  By 1937 there were 10 boats built and Mr Vaughan organized, started and finished the fleet on the area in which we now sail.  In 1938 he officially formed the Club and donated the handsome silver cup.  The first winner in 1939 was Harold Vaughan who became a great character on the Australian sailing scene and wrote many books on sailing.  David Forbes was also a recipient as was Jim Catts in 1965.

Will be published here ... just need to sort out the formating

Sailing their own Manly Juniors (MJ), Flying 11 (F11), Spiral, O'pen BIC or Laser this is where the racing becomes the focus and more competitive ... but still with plenty of fun and mucking about.

 

Sailors normally start in Blue for a season and progress through to Red the following season. However, if sailors have some prior sailing experience, such as a summer sail camp or two, Red group may be the right place for them to start, and where sailors are progressing more quickly we encourage them to progress to the group that suits their level of skill.

 

Unlike the Blue (learn to sail) group where sailors use the club's boats and equipment, in Red group sailors must have their own boats and equipment. The club has a fleet of "two handers" in Manly Junoirs (MJs) and Flying 11's, plus "single handers" in O'Pen BICs and Spirals. It is typical for the Skipper to own a "two hander" with crew committing to the boat for the season.

 

Skills include:

 

An introduction to sailing aimed at 7~12 year olds. Sometimes we have a group of slightly older children in it too.

Run over a summer season, all the basics are introduced, children often sail in pairs in Manly Juniors or Nippas. Depending on size, experience and wind strength we also use our Puffins. The kids have heaps of fun and are mentored by our experienced teenage sailors with adult support.
