Entry Opens For 2017 Club Marine Pittwater To Southport Yacht Race
Entry is open for the first-ever Club Marine Pittwater to Southport Yacht Race, the lead-in offshore race of the New Year and one of the major events to fall within The Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club’s sesquicentenary year (150yrs).
The Notice of Race and entry is available from the event website www.pittwatertosouthport.com.au
Given the damage to Coffs Harbour marina caused by a powerful east coast low in June, and uncertainty about the timing of repairs, last month the organising club announced it was moving the finish of its key coastal event further north, to Southport for 2017.
The 370 nautical mile race will commence from the traditional Pittwater start line north of Palm Beach Headland at 1pm on January 2, 2017, and finish some two to four days later, depending on the size of the boat and sailing conditions.
