The AWKR hosts a series of informative Sailing Lectures in the lead up to the regatta. The speakers are sourced from our wide network of experienced sailors, coaches, judges and industry professionals and are held in the Harbour Room at Royal Melbourne Yacht Squadron. The Lectures are always well attended and provide an excellent learning and networking opportunity for AWKR participants and other club members alike.

Admission is free and open to all.​ An informal dinner is as available at the Squadron before each lecture. If you would like to have a meal at the squadron, bookings are appreciated to [email protected]
