The Princess Royal Sailing Club will enter its 113th season on Saturday.

Formed in 1909, it one of WA’s oldest sporting organisations.

Life member and former commodore of the club Geoff Steere will officially open the 2022-2023 sailing season at 12.30.

Celebrations will begin with traditional strawberries and champagne as new and old members gather in the clubhouse for the eagerly awaited event.

Four divisions will be seen in action on the harbour over the next eight to nine months as skippers and crews strive to win some of the prestigious, handsome and historic trophies up for grabs.
