Adelaide Intervarsity Regatta


Ahoy Sailors!!

Sign ups are now open for our trip to Adelaide to compete in an intervarsity regatta from the 10th to 14th of August.  The cost will be $280. This will include; regatta entry, boat hire, meals and accommodation. The weekend will be packed with sailing and social events including welcome drinks, a pub crawl on either the Friday or Saturday night, a karaoke night, and, a closing lunch. There will be a mixture of pacer teams sailing and J24 racing – which is the main focus of the regatta. On the Wednesday (10th) there will be a coached social sail in the J24s running all day, this is optional but if you can get there in time we would recommend attending. For more details on the sailing see the itinerary below.

Registration is open only to those who are experienced sailors however you are not required to have keel boat or pacer sailing experience specifically.

You will be required to organise your own transport to and from Adelaide this will probably be $300-500 depending on the airline and when you fly (Jetstar runs sales Fridays and Virgin run them Thursdays). Also, look into arrivng on earlier days and leaveing later if you want as that may change prices. You are required to be at the yacht club by 6pm at the latest on the 10th and can leave anytime after 2pm on the 14th. You should also plan to spend some money on drinks as there will likely be social drinks after racing each day.
