This is the weekend before Sailing World Cup Melbourne and will be a great warm up for a fantastic week of sailing. Come and see the new exciting changes at RBYC.
The George Mac Regatta, RBYC’s premier off-the-beach event, will be held on December 3 & 4, 2016.
The regatta will bring together off-the-beach sailors of all ages from around the bay and interstate. Invited classes include all junior and youth classes, along with a variety of open classes including 470, 420, 29er, 49er, FX, 2.4mR, Laser 4.7, Laser Radial, Laser Open, Tasar, Viper, Nacra and A-Class. The 2016 Victorian Championships for the RS100, RS200, RS Aero and Flying Dutchman classes will be held as part of the George Mac Regatta this year.
The historic George Mac regatta has been a long-term fixture on the RBYC and the Bay junior sailing calendar after being founded as an annual event to honour the late George “Nugget” McCallum. 2015 marked the relaunch of the event as a multi-class off-the-beach regatta for all age groups. Prizes are 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 has included the recent hosting of 2013-2014 Australian 9er Championships, the 2015 Victorian Optimist State Championships and the 2016-17 Victorian Junior & Youth Championships.
The Club boasts first rate facilities, including an extensive and newly-expanded rigging and boat-storage area, a sheltered boat launching area, and ideal sailing conditions for all ages, along with extensive on-shore facilities for competitors and supporters to enjoy. The regatta is also ideally timed for preparation for the Sailing World Cup Melbourne and class national championships.
