Airlie Beach Race Week – 12-19 August

Escape winter windless days:

For the first time F16s and their big Sisters the F18s will race Airlie Beach – 9 races, windward leeward and passage.

This is going to be the BIG ONE. The one you don’t want to miss because its going to be the first one. Be the person recounting the stories of adventure, amazing sailing, tight racing and legendary parties in the beautiful Whitsundays, not the person saying argggh I should have gone, I could have gone.

Racing will be scored on VYC – Vipers and Nacra F16 at 68.5

Entries are open here:

Charter a boat, buy a boat, borrow a boat we don’t really care – just brush up on your best jokes and come to the party!

19-20 February – South West Rocks
19-25 March – F18 Nationals Rockingham
25 April – Anzac Day Regatta – Speers Point

Its a rare opportunity in sailing where a boat suited to a lighter crew and youth sailors can compete on a equal footing with a senior boat crewed by a stronger, heavier crew.

Bring your juniors to learn from the big guns in the F18 fleet and senior sailors on F16s.

Tough love! Its how we empower champions.

There are often crew/skipper spots available on single hander boats. If you cannot find a crew come sail a F16 single handed – its all about the fun and the racing. Contact us for details


2021Humpybong Humpybash – 7-8 August

The regatta with the funniest name was a hoot last year and its on again, on route to Airlie beach I may add.

A good fleet of F18s and F16s with some NACRA 15 speed bumps to keep you vigilant at the starts.

First day is windward leewards, second day is a marathon.

A word of warning: for the marathon be 100% sure of the course, which bouys to go around and which side of them to pass. Some of us got a DSQ last year………like all the top boats…double check the Marathon course!

2021 F18/16 Training 25-26 September Tanilba Bay/Mannering Park

Dan and Nathan van Kerckhof in conjunction with the NSW F18 and F16 Associations will be holding a two day training camp.

This is worth every bit and there is valuable information, advice, drills and a few cheeky beers after to be had. Last year this camp assisted Beau and Tristan to snag a third at the F18 Nationals so the value of this camp cannot be stressed enough.

More information to follow on the final location, bookings etc here and on Facebook.
