April Events Newcastle and Port Stephens
First is Newcastle Sailfest which will have a Laser event on Sunday 11th April. Boats will rig at Port Hunter Sailing Club, Stockton and racing will be real grand stand sailing in front of the city, Queens Wharf area. A flyer for the event is HERE.
If you haven’t been to Newcastle in a while you will be surprised at what a great job the city fathers (and mothers) have done in and around the city and the harbour.
The second NCYC event is the dinghy section of Sail Port Stephens. This will be held at the Bay Sailing Centre which is the old favourite Port Stephens SAC at Soldiers Point which is now under new management by NCYC. NCYC has re-vitalised the club as a sail training and racing venue.
Sail Port Stephens is a very popular yacht regatta which has now incorporated off the beach events. This year OTB races will be on 24 -25th April (12.30pm start) from the Bay Sailing Centre. The flyer for the OTB classes is HERE.
Bay Sailing Centre will be the venue for our Laser State Masters in 2022 (5-6 February) and the Australian Laser Masters 10-13 February 2023 so this is an opportunity to get some racing practice in there.
