Event Director and Olympic Gold Medallist Mark Turnbull comments ‘'Sail Melbourne has a proud history of supporting many youth and feeder classes to the Olympic and Paralympic fleets.
Allowing competitors of all abilities the opportunity to race and socialise alongside their Olympic heroes at an ISAF Grade 1 event.'
'This year, in response to feedback from many sailors, we have compressed some of the invited class programs, allowing more people to get involved at this busy time in the school and pre-Christmas period.
' We are looking forward to welcoming sailors from around Australia and the Oceanic region to Melbourne to enjoy some great sailing on the Port Phillip waters alongside the Olympic class sailors from around the world as they step up their campaigns for Rio 2016'.
