We were almost completely overwhelmed by the launch of SailTime Australia at the recent Sydney Boat Show with over 800 people visiting "Bluebird", the first yacht in our Newport Base.
We were delighted to meet so many keen yachtees and to discover that the Fractional Sailing Membership concept is going to be as enthusiastically embraced in Australia as it has been around the world since SailTime began in 2001.
The main feedback we received was "this is a fantastic idea – it just makes sense – we want to be able to sail regularly, but don't want to invest in buying our own boat or finding the capital to join a Boat Share Syndicate that we are locked into for 3 or more years". That's exactly why SailTime has over a thousand members worldwide – it opens the door to affordable sailing.
Thanks to everyone who entered our competition and congratulations to the winners:
Simon Condon of Wamberg – A skippered days sailing on Pittwater
Les Sher of Pymble – $500 of Musto Sailing Gear
Darien Macy of Drummoyne – An Introduction to Sailing Course
We have now confirmed several memberships on Bluebird, our Beneteau Oceanis 34 and have just 3 spots left. If you would like to be sailing on Pittwater this spring, call us today on 1300 944 974 to reserve your spot!
