Royal Brighton relaunches the George Mac Regatta

In November 2015, the Royal Brighton Yacht Club (RBYC) will relaunch the George Mac Regatta as the Club’s premier off- the- beach event. To be held on November 21 and 22, the regatta will bring together off-the-beach sailors of all ages from around the bay.

Invited classes include all the junior and youth classes, along with selected open classes including RS100s, RS200s, Pacers and Vipers. Additionally, on the Sunday, a single-day Tackers Fun Regatta is also included in the program.

The historic George Mac regatta has been a long-term fixture on the RBYC and the junior sailing calendar after being founded as an annual event to honour the late George “Nugget” McCallum. This year marks the relaunch of the event as a multi-class off-the-beach regatta for all age groups. Prizes will be awarded within each division, with the winner of the junior division being awarded the prestigious George McCallum Cup.

This event forms part of RBYC’s commitment to supporting off-the-beach sailing and racing, which support has included the recent hosting of 2013-2014 Australian 9er Championships and the 2015 Victorian Optimist Championships.

The Club boasts first rate facilities, including an extensive and newly-expanded rigging and boat-storage area, a sheltered boat launching area, and extensive on-shore facilities for competitors and supporters to enjoy. The regatta is also ideally timed for preparation for the up-coming national class championships.
