Sailing! - An opportunity to get the wind through your hair and salt on your skin.
Our main requirement is that you enjoy having a great time!
Wednesday Training - School Afternoon
Sailors are dismissed from the venue at the conclusion of sailing approximately 4 p.m.
These sailing regattas have a progressive point score over the course of the season (Term 4 and Term 1). A number of other schools are also involved in the races. The events are run by a committee from the Woollahra Sailing Club. Our students are members of Double Bay Sailing Club.
Sydney Boys High School employs Adam South to assist and provide coaching, support and guidance to our sailors. He is involved in the racing and is available on Saturdays for our boys. The boys' details and emergency phone contacts are available to the sailing master and coach. They provide safety support and back up to our sailors in case of accident or misadventure.
The sailing master, teacher or representative from Sydney Boys High is at Double Bay from 7.30 a.m. to mark the roll, ensure students have equipment and generally assist boys onto the water. Once the boys are been assisted onto the water the teacher or school representative will leave and the students are the responsibility of the coach, the parents/caregivers and the club.
Most races conclude by 1pm but this weather dependent. Boys sail Pacers or Lasers depending on ability and availability of equipment.
Thursday Training - School Afternoon
Boys are dismissed from the venue and make their own way home.
Monday Before School
Sydney Boys High raises money to support its sports teams. One method used to raise money is to park cars attending sporting fixtures on school grounds. Each sporting group gets an opportunity to park cars in the school grounds during events on at Moore Park and use the money raised to purchase equipment and provide training for the sport involved. Each student involved receives points towards the Awards Scheme.
Without the support of parents, we cannot park the cars and raise the money needed for sailing. Please join us at school when sailing has its turn to raise funds from parking.
The sailing committee also cater at school functions. A donation of a plate of food by sailing parents as well as parent and student support on the relevant nights would help enormously.
To see how you can donate to sports at Sydney Boys High School, see the ASAF donations page.
