Southport Yacht Club, on the Gold Coast, is planning an appealing extension to the annual Pittwater to Coffs Harbour Race, which is scheduled to start on January 2, 2016.
Competitors in the 35th annual Club Marine Pittwater to Coffs Race are encouraged to compete in the Bartercard Coffs to Paradise race, starting January 7, then Southport Yacht Club’s signature regatta for the summer season, Bartercard Sail Paradise.
The schedule is designed to give sailors some excellent, high-summer coastal racing while their families and friends can join them on the Gold Coast for fun times during the staging of Sail Paradise.
Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club, as organisers of the Pittwater to Coffs race, and Coffs Harbour Yacht Club are supporting the staging of the 150 nautical mile Bartercard Coffs to Paradise race. The Pittwater to Coffs race covers 226 nautical miles.
A spectacular prize is also up for grabs, a seven-night holiday to Fiji’s Taveuni Island – and any competing yacht owner can WIN!
Bartercard Sail Paradise is open to monohulls and multihulls of all classifications, as well as off-the-beach dinghies and catamarans. The regatta will be staged from Wednesday, January 13 to Sunday, January 17. There will be a lay-day on the Friday, and off-the-beach classes will participate over the weekend as part of the regatta.
An entertaining social program had been planned for Bartercard Sail Paradise competitors, their families and friends. This will include an escape on the lay-day to Southport Yacht Club’s secluded hideaway, Dux, which is sited at a waterfront location on South Stradbroke Island.
