The entry date has been extended by the organisers, The Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club for the 33rd Club Marine Pittwater & Coffs Harbour Regatta 2014. Competitors will now have until 5pm next Friday 13 December to get their entry in without incurring a late fee.

This will give anyone contemplating entering the Club Marine Pittwater to Coffs race and/or the associated five race regatta one last opportunity to get their entry in and enjoy the first race of the new year and the 'warm water' regatta.

With 39 boats entered to date, a competitive fleet of 33 monohulls and six multihulls has assembled for the tactical race north, representing 12 different yacht clubs on the eastern seaboard. There are no fewer than 15 boats doing the regatta for the first time.

With a late flurry of entries over the last few days the organising committee decided this afternoon to extend the close of entry to encourage more entries.


The five race regatta kicks off with the Club Marine Pittwater to Coffs Harbour Race on Thursday 2 January at 1pm followed by two sprint and two 20nm offshore races in Coffs Harbour on Sunday 5 and Monday 6 January to round out the regatta. The Club Marine Pittwater & Coffs Harbour Regatta offers IRC, ORCi, PHS, shorthanded and OMR multihull Divisions and also plays host to the Australian Performance Handicap (PHS) Championships with 28 entries opting to race in the championships.

Richard Hudson, Chair of the Coffs Organising Committee said, 'We’re pleased to keep the entries open for another week, we have again attracted another very competitive fleet particularly in the 40 to 50 footers and want to leave the door open to invite others contemplating entering, the opportunity to do so. We have some great social activities planned in Coffs for crews to enjoy themselves so we welcome anyone considering the regatta, to get their entry and paperwork in as soon as possible.'

A provisional list of entries, the notice of race and online entry is available on the event website

For race enquiries please contact the RPAYC Sailing Office on (02) 9998 3771 or email yachting@rpayc.com.au. Final close of entries is now next Friday, 13 December 2013 at 1700hrs and the deadline for all competitors documentation is Monday 16 December at 1700hrs.
