Mariner Boating Holidays launches new concept for yacht club members and local boat owners

The team at Mariner Boating Holidays has come up with a new concept for a get together of yacht club members and local boat owners in this inter-club event on the long weekend in October (02 to 05).

Called the Sydney Harbour Hop, or “Yachtober”, it combines wine, food, dance and yachting on our beautiful harbour.

Enjoy racing, entertainment and special events as we explore Sydney Harbour in an all out hop from the Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron on Friday night, to the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia on Saturday and then on to the Middle Harbour Yacht Club for Sunday night.

The event is open to all. Participate on you own yacht, enter with a charter yacht, or join a crew of friends.

The event will be the first conducted by Mariner Boating Holidays on our Sydney waters and many of the participants will be reuniting after having sailed in one of the many similar overseas events conducted by Mariner over the past ten years.

The weekend will kick off with a complementary wine tasting of Robert Oatley Premium wines followed by a BBQ at the Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron. As usual there will be some casual racing and a little cruising and the social function at the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia will rival those of our overseas events. A very special night with our West Indian friend Errol and his Caribbean Soul band providing the entertainment to accompany a sumptuous dinner upstairs in the Freya Room.

On Sunday after racing the venue will be the Middle Harbour Yacht Club for a BBQ dinner. We have tagged Monday as a free day to enable any participants who want to join us from Pittwater to sail back in time for work on Tuesday.

Needless to say the racing will use the now world famous Trev's International Timing System to handicap the fleet and create a level playing field!

The full program includes three dinners, entertainment and race management
Friday – Monday $375.00 per person

3 day Program (from Saturday am)
Saturday – Monday $295.00 per person
