“The beautiful scenery makes for spectacular sailing here on the Gold Coast. We make sure everyone involved, skippers, crew, family and friends soak up more than just the sun during this series. I encourage you all to get your entries in and take up the opportunity of our one off early bird discount” said Commodore Ray McMahon.

Entries are now open for the Bartercard Sail Paradise series, held from 6th – 9th January 2019. The four-day offshore regatta will again follow the Club Marine Pittwater to Paradise Yacht Race. A 380 nautical mile offshore event hosted by the Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club. In it’s third year, both Club’s are pre planning to ensure the biggest and best combined series yet!

Held in summer school holidays, the premier sailing event brings an added option for sailors to combine the series with the ultimate Gold Coast family holiday. Many sailors take the option to bring their families to the Gold Coast and combine the series with fun filled Gold Coast family attractions. 

Exhibitors and great family fun are rushing in to ensure they are all involved in the additional event of the Gold Coast Marine Family Festival. Held on Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th January, the event adds an additional bonus to the competitors with great marine interactions and displays along with family fun for all.

Incorporating this festival during the weekend will give both the community the option to see the grand prix vessels up close as well as an added extra to the sailors.

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. With it being high summer, a relaxing and festive holiday atmosphere will prevail at the Club and across the Gold Coast.
