For 2018 The Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club welcomes Selden for Sailing as the naming right sponsor of the Ice Breaker Series.

With a turnover of 40 million Euros, 220 employees and production in Europe, USA and Hong Kong, Selden is a major player in the sailing industry.

Dinghy, keelboats, yachts and multihulls from DeckHardware to carbon masts, Olympic Medals, World and National titles - Selden has it all.

The 2018 Selden for Sailing Ice Breaker Winter Series is a fantastic opportunity for centreboard (OTB) sailors, young and old, to get out on the waters of Pittwater to race over the winter months.

The Series is hosted by The Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club and has been held for over 10 years. Originally a two day regatta, it was developed into a four round series in 2010 over May, June, July and August, with each round seeing up to 150 competitors.

The Series caters for many "off the beach" dinghy classes as listed in the Notice of Race. Additional Classes are also welcome to participate by contacting the Race Committee via the Sailing Office at The RPAYC.

Jan Scholten, the Australian Distributor for Selden for Sailing, said "Selden are proud to be supporting centreboard sailing which is the grassroots of our industry".

Selden for Sailing will be awarding fantastic prizes for the overall placegetters in each Class.

Racing takes advantage of the early morning winter breezes with the first start from 0930hrs. Racing is typically completed by 1230hrs.

Series entrants also get to enjoy the famous RPAYC post-race BBQ included in their entry fee.
