2014 Sail Mooloolaba - The 2014 Yachting Queensland IRC State titles will for the first time be conducted as part of Sail Mooloolaba which is being held in June through to early July 2014.

This is also the first time this championship has ventured to Mooloolaba and it won't be the last. IRC is the premier yacht racing division and the championship will attract the biggest and fastest yachts in the State. Entries from north of Mooloolaba and from Brisbane and the Gold Coast will make up the expected 20-boat fleet.

The yacht event, to be held within the multi-faceted Sail Mooloolaba Regatta, is scheduled for the weekend of the 28th and 29th of June.

To further encourage not only the IRC, but other cruising yachts and multihull racers, the Mooloolaba Marina is offering free berthing of up to one week (subject to availability) as well as a 15 per cent discount for any competing yacht booking bordering either side of the event.

To take up the offer, please contact the Mooloolaba Marina via email at manager@mooloolabamarina.com.au and copy to Sail Mooloolaba (sailmooloolaba@bigpond.com).

The Queensland IRC Championship adds to what is developing into the biggest and best Sail Mooloolaba regatta ever.

Already booked is the SB20 Sports Boat National Championship and the ASBA Winter National Championship for Sports Boats, now over three days from 13 to 15 June. A total fleet of close to 50 sports boats are expected over that weekend for the two events and will be the biggest Sports Boat event ever held in Australia.

Combine these events with the Dinghy event on the fifth and 6th July, Schools Match Racing on third and 4th July, Radio Controlled Yachts on Tuesday 1st July, the Fun Sail on the 2nd July and Open Match Racing on the 21st and 22nd June, you have the ultimate Sailing Event. One location, eight events. Something for everyone.

The Notice of Race and Entry for all events will be available soon on the Sail Mooloolaba website or keep up to date via our Facebook Page : www.facebook.com/SailMooloolaba

It really is time to get off the couch and come for a Sail.
