sail-world.com -- Pittwater Regatta Open to all Beach Catamarans

Pittwater Regatta Open to all Beach Catamarans    
Mon, 14 Oct 2013

The Beware the Bullets Regatta November 9 - 10 on Pittwater, an open event for all beach catamarans, will give local sailors a chance to prepare for the upcoming Hobie 16 World Championships in Jervis Bay, NSW.

Hobie sailors from the Palm Beach Sailing Club ('PBSC') are on a mission to defend their world titles early 2014. Possibly inspired by America's Cup Oracle skipper, James Spithill, who was also a Hobie sailor on Pittwater, the entrants list for this year's Hobie 16 Worlds is record breaking.

Typically an event that requires Aussies to travel to Europe, America, Africa and Asia every year will now only be hours away. Registration includes 375 competitors from 14 countries. PBSC has over 20 members competing this year.


The local club has a collection of world champions defending their titles including Anthony Duchatel and Evelyn Curtis as Grand Masters, Rod and Kerry Waterhouse as Masters Champions, and Jason Waterhouse and Lisa Darmanian as Youth Champions. Jason Waterhouse recently represented Australia in the Red Bull Youth America's Cup in San Francisco as a skipper.

'We have a great legacy of Olympic, world and national champions of various multihulls coming from our club' says Commodore Dick Clarke. 'The competition is going to be fierce but the Aussies will represent some of the very best. You can count on them being prepared and passionate about their sailing, and probably having the most fun too - which is at the heart of why we sail.'

PBSC is looking for multihull sailors to join them at their Bullets Regatta November 9-10 at Sandy Point, Pittwater. All levels of sailors are welcome, whether novice or champion. For more information visit PBSC website, or contact Dick Clarke at commodore@pbsc.org.au.
