Sail Melbourne Approaching

Australia’s largest dinghy regatta will once again be held at Sandringham Yacht Club from the 1st to the 8th of December. The event includes all the Olympic as well as other invited classes, with Australia’s top 470 sailors as well as a few internationals set to compete against each other not only for the regatta itself, but as part of the cumulative points that go towards determining the outcome of the ISAF World Cup.

Sail Melbourne also presents itself as another important milestone opportunity for Mat Belcher, who hasn’t lost a regatta since coming second at Sail Melbourne in 2011. If Mat and Will win this time, it will be Mat’s eighteenth straight regatta win, and he will have been undefeated for two years.
