On behalf of the Middle Harbour Yacht Club it is my great pleasure to welcome you to the 2016 Sydney Harbour Regatta, this being the 11th Anniversary of this prestigious regatta.
Sydney Harbour plays host to some of the most competitive and high-profile yacht racing regattas in Australia and the Sydney Harbour Regatta, now in its eleventh year, is the strongest competitive sailing regatta in Sydney since Sydney 2000 Olympic Regatta.
This event is constantly growing in the size and diversity of participating boats and classes, setting it well on its way to a highly regarded international regatta. Originally established as the lead event for Sydney Harbour Week, which celebrates our harbours diversity, the Sydney Harbour Regatta has rightly earned its reputation as Sydney Harbour's 'Sailing Spectacular', providing a perfect opportunity for us all to display to spectators the thrill and excitement that our sport offers.
Shore-side, this years event is guaranteed to be a wonderful festival of fun. With a line up of dinghy sailing for the kids, live entertainment,and a beach party on Saturday evening...everyone will remain well entertained!!. A must do event to be noted in your social networking calendar.
I welcome and thank our sponsors for 2016 - Helly Hansen, Trina Solar, Sydney City Marine, Robert Oatley Vineyards.
I am confident you will enjoy this years event. I look forward to seeing you on the water and later on the Club's beach to share in the prizes and entertainment.
Yours in sailing
