Members/Membership – NSWPSC
The NSWPS has over 70 members and is trying to promote growth in the club and sailing in general. The NSWPS hosts two Regattas per year and each year is able to send a team overseas to compete in International Police Sailing Regattas. Locally, we seek involvement of current NSW Police and other Emergency Service & ADF personnel, through articles in the Police News, other magazines and journals.
