It’s time to head back to the surf coast!
Held over the Labour Day long weekend, 9-11 March, the Vic States are shaping up to be exciting in every sense of the word.
Anglesea Motor Yacht Club, or AMYC (which we assure sailors, that despite the name has nothing to do with stink boats) have recently upgraded their digs, with all new facilities downstairs for the on-water stuff, and an impressive bar and kitchen area with the best view in town. It’s a very impressive building the whole AMYC have put a mammoth effort into realising. Spectators will be able to enjoy a cold one on the balcony, with a perfect view of the race area.
Sailing in Anglesea happens from the beach of Point Roadknight, a stunning area steeped in Hobie history. Those wanting quiet, gentle, consistent flat water: we suggest you check out the aforementioned shiny new bar, and stick to lakes! The waters of Point Roadknight are FUN! Depending on wind and swell direction and strength, you may find yourself testing just how well Hobies live up to the name “surf cat.” There’s often a shorey needing skippers to pick their set timing, a couple of reefs to be wary of at low tide, and of course the wide open waters of Bass Strait awaiting you all!
The Labour Day long weekend is a busy time along the Surf Coast, so start scoping out your accommodation options. There’s likely to be a couple of 14s and 16s available for charter, so get in touch with the VIC committee if you’re chasing a boat. We’ll do whatever we can to get you on the water! Can’t wait to see you all there.

If you are competing in the 2024 Victorian State Championships, at least ONE person on your boat MUST be a financial member of your State Association.
