Lock Crowther Multihull Regatta 2018

Lock Crowther was regarded as a world class Australian pioneer of multihull yacht design. The Multihull Division of the Royal Motor Yacht Club Broken Bay (at Newport) recognise his dedication to the development of the modern multihull and name a Regatta in his honour.

The Lock Crowther Regatta has been hosted by the RMYC since 1996 and offers multihull owners both exciting racing and cruising programs. This Labour Day long weekend is the 23rd edition of the popular regatta.

Five races over three days occur on the beautiful waters of Pittwater and Broken Bay, NSW - starting with an optional Blue Water Classic ocean race on Friday 28 September 2018 for Safety Category 4 equipped boats and 4 inshore races sailed over Saturday 29 September and Sunday 30 September 2018.

This year the RMYC Mutilhull Division are pleased to welcome Multihull Solutions as major sponsor of the 2018 event and thank them warmly for their generous support.

Also this year the Division are proud to be an official fund raising supporter of the Heart Foundation. They have arranged a number of opportunities over the weekend for regatta participants to contribute to the Foundation should they wish, including through the raffling of some fantastic prizes.
