The offshore component of the SailFest Newcastle Regatta will include IRC and PHS handicapping for a wide range of entries over the weekend of March 26-27.
Category 4 safety gear is a prerequisite and each participating yacht must maintain an accurate Crew List within the Topyacht Entry System.
Registration will be open from 8.30am on 26 April at NCYC (95 Hannell Street, Wickham) ahead of a Competitors Briefing that will be broadcast on SailFest Newcastle’s Facebook Live.
The warning signal sounds at 12.25pm for a Passage Race. On returning to the NCYC marina, each entry will receive a carton of Heineken beer for an impromptu dock party.
Sunday, 26 March, will have the first warning signal at 10.25 ahead of 3 x windward-leeward races.
Sailing Instructions will be available on the club website a week prior.
