The clear, warm waters of the Sunshine Coast are the place to be for sailors this Winter, with the combination of the Sunshine Coast Ocean Regatta (SCOR) and the Queensland IRC State Titles in July.
After the success of the Sunshine Coast Ocean Regatta (SCOR)’s revival last year, the event will once again be held in the coastal waters between Noosa and Caloundra.
The Sunshine Coast Yacht Club (SCYC) has also been selected to host the Queensland IRC State titles in July. This state titles will be run on 4th & 5th July in conjunction with the 2015 SCOR regatta which will run from 4th to 8th July.
The SCYC is inviting owners of suitable racing and cruising yachts, multihulls and sport boats to note the dates of the two events.
The original Sunshine Coast Ocean Regatta ran for 20 years through the 80s and 90s. It attracted huge names within the yachting industry, such as Hugh Treharne – the tactician of Australia’s winning America’s Cup team. In its prime, the event would host up to 60 boats. The IRC is the premier yacht racing division in Queensland and the Titles will attract the biggest and fastest yachts in the state.
Berths for visiting competing boats at Mooloolaba Marina will be available for the period of the events at no charge.
If you are interested in being part of SCOR 2015, please return entry form and the $200 entry fee to the SCYC Regatta Office, by 1700 hours on Friday 3rd July. Please visit www.scor.net.au to download the Notice of Race and Entry Form.
The Sunshine Coast Yacht Club looks forward to welcoming and meeting members for an enjoyable week of sailing on the beautiful Sunshine Coast.
