Learn the art of sailing and racing a sharpie.
The Australian Sharpie is a 3-person sailing dinghy which has evolved from the 12-square-metre class sailed in the 1956 Olympics in Melbourne, Australia. Australian Sharpies are 19 feet, 11 3/4 inches long, with a planing hull and a single mast. Sharpies race with a fully battened mainsail, a jib and a spinnaker.
Here's a video of sharpie sailing on our very own Lake Burley Griffin!
The training will consist of 2 training sessions and a Wednesday night race with the Canberra Yacht Club.
