State Masters Port Stephens 5-6 February

Bay Sailing Centre LogoThe State Masters is coming up next month 5-6 February at the Bay Sailing Centre Port Stephens.


The BSC was the Port Stephens Sailing & Aquatic Club. It was renamed by Newcastle Cruising Yacht Club which is now managing the facility. The sailing water, access and accommodation is all as we have enjoyed over the years.


As we have done with our recent COVID era events sailors will need to be double vaccinated and follow the COVID safe plan including wearing masks, COVID check in and abiding by density limits. Sailors can sign on and off for sailing using the link in the SI’s and Here. Rigging can be spread along the Soldiers Point shore.


We will not be running a Saturday night dinner but the bar will be open at the club after sailing on Saturday and around the presentation on Sunday. Sailors should be able to dine in smaller groups at the nearby Bowling Club or other clubs and restaurants around Port Stephens. There is a wide range of accommodation available around Port Stephens and Soldiers Point.



You can enter the Masters online Here or until 11.30am on Saturday at the sailing office at the club. Entry is $60. The Notice of Race is Here.


Charters are available from NBSailsports Here.
