It brings us the Commodore's Cup and the Pointscore Summer Series, but the season has been cut short.
A statement released on the Southern Highlands Sailing Club's Facebook page is as reads:
"It is deep sadness and regret Fitzroy Reservoir is closed due to a blue green algae bloom.
"All sailing is cancelled for the coming weeks with no predicted end point as yet.
We have five weeks of the season left and will keep you up to date if things should change.
"Please under no circumstance enter the sailing gate with out contacting the committee for permission.
"This may impact our licence.
"I am so sorry to bring you this news. Thank you for your patience and support over this disrupted season.
"We will be in touch soon. Stay safe over the coming weeks."
