The Club Marine Pittwater to Coffs Harbour Yacht Race will commence on 8 April at 1pm, with a race presentation on 10 April at the Coffs Harbour Yacht Club.
The race is open to offshore Cat3+ yachts, monohulls and multihulls with IRC – ORC – OMR – and short-handed class.
A Fever-Tree party to welcome participants will be held on 7 April, starting at 6:30pm, followed by a team briefing.
A valid Cat 1 or Cat 2 audit meets the requirements of the race. If participants have a valid Cat 3 Audit for 2021-22, then it will need to be audited under additional items by a certificated Australian Sailing Auditor. If you require such an Audit prior to the race, contact the Sailing Office.
All boat documentation is required to be uploaded to your boat’s Race Documents Entry. Crew lists, hired items and Satellite Declarations will all need to be completed prior to racing.
For boats that are based in Pittwater, a representative from Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club (RPAYC) will install your YB Tracker during the week prior to the start of the race.
Once installed, participants are asked not touch the tracker unit. RPAYC will contact boats that are sailing directly to the start line to arrange the installation of trackers.
Berthing is included at the RPAYC marina from 5 April until the start of the race. Participants are encouraged to contact Coffs Harbour Marina directly if they require berthing post-race. Baggage, spare sails and equipment transport is also available.
The Coffs Harbour Yacht Club (CHYC) Tender Crew will be available upon arrival. The crew can be contacted on VHF Ch77 to assist boats dropping off crew and those with Marina berth bookings.
There will be a presentation held at CHYC on 10 April from 1pm to 2pm to wrap up this year’s race.
The Pittwater to Coffs Harbour Yacht Race is the last blue water race of the New South Wales offshore sailing season.
