Many of the traditons of yachting come from our links to the navel past of the sport. Sailpast celebrates the opening of the sailing season and is a parade of boats past the Commodore’s boat.
The Commodore’s Sailpast, held each year in early September, marks the official start of the sailing season. People are encouraged to decorate their boats and crew to make the event more interesting. After sailing past the Commodore, people make their way back to harbour, where a nice dinner and dance is organized and prizes are allocated to the best decorated and dressed boat
