The 2021 ASSA Sailors Survey results are now available for viewing below. ASSA send out a survey each year to help the association to gather feedback about the national championships and general association operations. This is an invaluable tool and certainly assists the association in making the right decisions for future regattas.
Congratulations to Michael Childs (Vaikobi 16ft Skiff) for winning the $300 team kit reimbursement prize.
As always, if any skiff sailor has any feedback for the association, please get in contact with our secretary or any other ASSA representative.
We have attached the 2020 Survey results (as many of the questions remain the same each year) for reference.

We have emailed links to skippers of skiffs whom participated, but you did not receive a link, please contact our secretary (info below).

The Red Pumps 2021 Australian Skiff Championships are fast approaching, so it’s time to get into gear and register. The regattas are being held as a condensed event from April 2nd-5th at Gosford Sailing Club. Boats who have already entered will have their entry carry over to Easter. If you are now unable to participate in the event, please contact the association to make the changes to your registration.
We have published a new version of the Notice of Race which has the updated schedule and changes to series scoring. The sailing instructions for the event will be available at least a day prior to the start of the regatta.
ASSA and GSC would like to thank our sponsors for supporting the changes to the event and hope that our sailors will show the same gratitude through-out the event in Easter.
If anyone has any questions about the event, please get in contact with us through our email email@example.com and we will reply as soon as we can.
