Entries are open for the two exciting new curtain raisers for the 2018 east coast offshore sailing season – the Club Marine Pittwater to Paradise Regatta and the Bartercard Sail Paradise series.
The two events are presented jointly by Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club and Southport Yacht Club on the Gold Coast.
The 380 nautical mile Pittwater to Paradise race will start off the entrance to Pittwater, in Sydney, on January 2 and finish off Main Beach on the Gold Coast while Sail Paradise will be decided over four days of racing from January 6 to 8. The courses for Sail Paradise will be set just off the surfline of the Gold Coast’s famous sandy beaches.
Both events are open to the full spectrum of offshore racing yachts – from the upper echelon of racing monohulls and multihulls through to cruiser/racers.
Southport Yacht Club will host a series of special on-shore social events at the conclusion of the Club Marine Pittwater to Paradise regatta and during Bartercard Sail Paradise. And, with it being high summer, a relaxing and festive holiday atmosphere will prevail at the club and across the Gold Coast.
