Where can I sail a Pelican?
The Pelican Sailing Dinghy is presently utilised by six Western Australian yacht clubs as both a training and racing boat, for 8-16 year old junior sailors. Two metropolitan clubs sail Pelicans, the East Fremantle and South of Perth Yacht Clubs, whilst the four regional clubs host some of the largest fleets in the State, namely the Esperance Bay, Geographe Bay, Geraldton and Port Bouvard Yacht Clubs.
