Fleet Mast Sleeve Purchase

To reduce single use plastic we have moved to reusable fleet mast sleeves for the 2024 Australian Championships.


  • All classes with have split fleets for this event so all sailors will need to buy a sleeve for $15.
  • The sleeves which are reversible yellow one side & blue the other will be available for collection at the registration desk.
  • It is a good idea to pre purchase via the link Here.
  • You will receive a purchase confirmation by email.
  • Show this at the registration desk & you will be given the mast sleeve.
  • If you don’t pre purchase, you can pay for your sleeve at registration using the online purchase process.

Retain your sleeve for the next big event and you will have made a small contribution to reducing the use of plastic.
