Newcastle Cruising Yacht Club and Port Hunter 16-Foot Skiff Sailing Club proudly present the annual SailFest Newcastle Regatta

26-27 March 2022

In a celebration of all things sail, our harbour and coastline come alive with grand-prix TP52 yachts, high-speed skiffs and catamarans, keelboat match-racers,  Try-Sailing experiences and more.

With thanks to our major supporters, City of Newcastle and Transport for NSW.
