Give your sailing skills a workout at the Palm Beach Sailing Club’s annual Bullets regatta held this year on the weekend of November 16 and 17 2019.
Running now for more than 50 years, the ‘Beware the Bullets’ regatta is open to any off-the-beach catamaran. It’s a fun, friendly weekend for all ages on beautiful Pittwater, and if you’re a gun – a real test of your sailing skills.
This year we are expecting participants to compete in several classes including Hobie Cat 16, Hobie Cat 18, Formula 18, A Class and more.
Boats will rig and launch from Sandy Point, (via Sandy Point Lane), while the actual Palm Beach Sailing Club is located on Iluka Rd. Breakfast and lunch will be provided at a reasonable price by our friendly Club members.
We recommend you book accommodation as soon as you can. Campers could try the stunning Basin Camping Ground. Our Club will run a shuttle service to / from the Basin for competitors. https://www.nationalparks.nsw.gov.au/camping-and-accommodation/campgrounds/the-basin-campground
Another option is the Lakeside Holiday park at Narrabeen, just a 25 minute drive to the club.
“We encourage any catamaran sailor to come and compete in our annual regatta” said Richard Lacey, Commodore of the Club. “The more boats the more fun. Pittwater is a great place to race but can also be challenging, so skill and luck will both play a role in who comes out on top”.
