HARKEN MATCH RACING ATTRACTS TOP YOUTH TO PITTWATER

Newport's Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club will again welcome top international youth sailors to its doors for the 22nd HARKEN International Youth Match Racing Championship to be sailed on Pittwater commencing with Round Robin racing starting Wednesday 19 through to Sunday 23 November.

Dependant on weight limits, each boat will have between 4 and 5 sailors. This year’s field of 13 skippers (U21) includes 5 international teams and 3 female skippers.

Black beauty’s New Year dash to Coffs

Australia’s most well-travelled multihull, Shaun Carroll’s black beauty called Morticia, is one of the starters for January’s Club Marine Pittwater to Coffs Yacht Race. Off the back of a busy 18 month Australian circuit the trimaran has just completed New Zealand’s Coastal Classic; a race skipper Chris Williams affectionately calls a “drag strip derby”. 

Carroll and Williams have spent the last two years cutting down sail area on the Sea Cart 30 so it better suits the Australian adopted Offshore Multihull Rule. For the arbitrarily handicapped Coastal Classic from Auckland to Russell along the North Island’s eastern fringe, the plan cost them.

Pusser's Rum Melges Championships

The Pusser’s Rum Melges East Coast Championships was held over the weekend of the 8/9th November 2014, hosted by the Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club.  This is the sixth Melges East Coast Championships to be hosted by the club, a permanent fixture in both the Melges 24 and Melges 32 annual regatta schedule.
