New Rule Changes are Final (Tue 5 August 2014)

The results of voting on the recent remit are now complete. Boat owners voting was mainly in favour of all the proposed changes, however, the restrictions on GPS use and rudder extension length were very close.

The latest rules and measurements can be viewed here Latest Measurement Rules 2014
NB: There will be a sail measurement guide to be read in conjunction with these new rules.

If you any questions please feel free to contact the National Technical Officer, Wayne Torpy, or your state Technical Officer.

Cherub Rule Changes (Sat 17 May 2014)

The period of consultation of the proposed Rule Changes has now closed and the National Technical Officer has carefully considered all the feedback that was received from Cherub sailors across the country. In response, a number of amendments have been made to the proposals. The attached document sets out the amended proposals that will now go to a national vote (remit). The owners of Cherubs currently registered with their respective State Associations will be entitled to participate in the vote. The details on how this will occur are set out in section 4 of the current “Rules and Restrictions” which can be found here:

NSW States 2011-12 Update (Wed 26 October 2011)

For those of you who may have missed out, the first Cherub Inter-club Regatta of the season was great fun. A report on the racing at Round One of the NSW State Championships can be found here:

The next big event is Round Two of the Sates which will be raced on 26-27 November at Belmont. Make sure you get organised in time. If you feel that you need a bit of practice sailing on Lake Macquarie before the States then give some consideration to the Bethwaite Challenge Regatta on 12-13 November.

This is the first year the Cherub class has been officially included in the regatta. In past years even the Belmont Cherubs have stayed away that weekend but this time we been invited to attend and there should be a good Cherub fleet ready to race.

Nationals 2011-12 Update (Sun 25 September 2011)

On Boxing Day a street party has been scheduled just down the road from Keppel Bay Sailing Club. This is the first time this has been tried, so it may not cause any problems, however KBSC want to ensure that all boats are free from any risk.

If you think you will be arriving on Boxing Day or earlier, please contact Sarah from KBSC so they can arrange for your boat to be placed in their secured lockup.
