Offshore Weather Services is proud to sponsor the Hastings Yacht Club 2014 Winter Series for off the beach dinghy sailing. Sailing every second Sunday a fleet of about 13 boats take to the water off Hastings, Victoria and enjoy a competitive afternoon of sailing. The sailors are divided into two groups with 8-10 young boys and girls sailing the same, but slightly shorter race course than a group of adults. Sailing the same single handed Laser dinghy but with slightly smaller rigs and sail area the two fleets make an impressive sight skimming past the Hasting Public Pier on a windy and sunny afternoon. Other classes of dinghy and beach catarmarans also take part in the races on a handicap system but the biggest fleet at Hastings Yacht Club is the Laser dinghy.
Hastings Yacht Club encourages the participation of people of all ages and gender to get onto the water on a sail boat with sailing races held on Saturdays for yachts, trailer sailors and multihulls. The yacht club also promote disabled sailing with a group of the club members teaching disabled people young and old in the delightful skills of sailboat handling and the joy of just being on the water under sail.
