Australia Day Regatta and Sail Past
The Sail Past is an Australia Day tradition at Gosford Sailing Club and involves boats donned with Australian flags and decorations sailing past and saluting the commodore and judging panel. There will be a prize for the best dressed crew. If you want to join, be rigged and on the water by 10.15am for the 10.30am muster. If you don't have a boat, the sail past is very exciting to watch from the shore. There will be remote radio control model yacht racing from the club all day.
The 180th Australia Day Regatta will start at 2.00pm so be on the water at 1.30pm. There are medallions and perpetual trophies for the winners presented at a later date at Town Hall, Sydney. There will be a barbeque after sailing.
"Above all, Australia Day is a celebration and the Regatta is a vital part of the annual salute to out nation's origins. We welcome all sailing boats and their crews to come out on the water to join the spectacular national birthday party. From crack ocean-racing yachts to centreboard dinghies, from elegant gaffers to radio-controlled model yachts, everyone is invited to share in the fun". - President Matt Allen and Chairman Malcolm Levy OAM
