Through the year Perth Flying Squadron Yacht Club holds many competitive races providing some healthy competition between Club Members and other Clubs on the River.
Opening Day 2019
Opening Day marks the beginning of our Sailing Season and we certainly started strong this year with competitors from PFSYC, International 14's and the Sharpies. A beautiful afternoon on the water with some healthy competition led to a very successful Race Day.
Parmelia Night Race 2020
The only race to be held on the Swan River at night proved once again to be a challenging night for all competitors. The lack of wind did not stop everyone from sailing competitively through the night till they passed the PFSYC Finish Line.
Wally Pickford Memorial Marathon Race 2020
Every year Perth Flying Squadron Yacht Club holds the Wally Pickford Memorial Marathon named after Past Commodore Wally Pickford. Wally was born and bred on the Goldfields and had rarely seen a river before a job opportunity brought him to the big smoke. Wally quickly grew fond of the water and before he knew it, he was sailing on the Swan at every opportunity. It wasn't long before Wally was a respected Member of the Club Committee and in 1995 Wally was elected as Commodore. He went on to serve as Commodore for 3 years.
The breeze this year certainly took its time to come through in order for the race to begin, however all sailors waiting patiently until it finally came enabling a tremendous start to begin. It was equally tremendous to finally see Wally's beloved Shibumi back on the water racing once again.
