SASC Special Events

In addition to regular weekend and twilight racing, The Amateurs hosts a number of notable annual and individual special events – both on and off the water.

Annual Prizegiving

Our Prizegiving is a special event for skippers and crew who won a series or trophy race throughout the season.  We also recognize the contribution of our volunteers.  A list of the 2017-18 Trophy winners can be downloaded: Perpetual Trophies 2017-18
