Entries are now flowing in for both the Sunshine Coast Ocean Regatta and its feeder race Brisbane to Sunshine Coast. SCYC Members and their families are excited about welcoming this year’s fleet of competing yachts on the Sunshine Coast. The annual Regatta in mid-July 2021 is generating a lot of interest amongst yachts going north for the Airlie Beach and Hamilton Island regattas.
Some yacht owners without the time this year to sail to north Queensland for the tropical regattas are favouring SCOR 2021 on the Sunshine Coast.
Registrations are open for boats in divisions IRC/ORCi, AMS and PHS – Monohulls and Multihulls. With an entry fee of just $100 (including for multiple Divisions) SCOR 2021 is proving to be attractive to many boat owners.
There will be a series of up to 6 races conducted over two days: Sat 17th and Sun 18th July, 2021. In addition to “around the buoy” races, there will be longer races which will make use of fixed navigation marks such as the Gneerings Cardinal Mark and the Mooloolaba Waverider Buoy.
A number of yachts from the Brisbane area have been missing good local ocean racing during the “Covid year” and plan to do the B2SC from Brisbane to the Sunshine Coast on 16 July as a feeder race to the SCOR 2021 regatta.
This race leaves from Queensland Cruising Yacht Club at Shorncliff to Sunshine Coast Yacht Club at Mooloolaba. The B2SC 2021 will include IRC, AMS and PHS divisions and also, for the first time, will feature a short-handed division (2 sailors per boat) to cater for boats favouring this format which is becoming increasingly popular, nationally and globally. The entry fee for B2SC is $20; with trophies and prizes to a value of $1,000.
Skippers from past SCOR regattas are telling the Sunshine Coast Yacht Club that they will be back in 2021 to enjoy the relaxed but competitive sailing with true open waters racing off the much-loved Sunshine Coast. They are also looking forward to meeting new sailors at the social events organised for the regatta.
Registration for both events is now open with the Notices of Race and Entry Forms on the website at https://scor.com.au/
