The second annual Club Marine Pittwater Sail Expo will be held over the week end of 16 & 17 March, 2013 at the Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club. A community event, the expo will feature over 35 exhibitors supplying goods and services to the professional and leisure sailor as well as providing information on sail training, club membership, cruising, dinghy and yacht racing.
Situated on beautiful Pittwater on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, The Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club is the state’s largest sailing club and combined with its extensive racing, cruising and dinghy programs, lures many sailors to the club. The club is home to over 1800 members, over 300 yachts, 70 hardstand boats and 100 dinghies. It is anticipated that the show will attract up to 3000 people over the week-end.

The Expo will feature an extensive array of exhibitors with many leading marine industry brands represented. There will be a large range of boats on display as well as other marine goods and services exhibiting including charter services, inflatable boats, marine paints, rigging, sail makers, shipwrights, marine groups, deck hardware, soft furnishings, electrical, batteries, ropes, marine insurance and much, much more. The event is open to the public and there will be no charge to enter.

Held in and around the club house and on the magnificent floating marina, the location will offer exhibitors options of water berths on the marina, hardstand exhibiting space and, individual marquee trade booth exhibition spaces in the main car park.

For visitors, it will be an outstanding opportunity to witness the Club first hand, have a look at sailing boats, gather information about training, racing, cruising, kids programs and membership and gain professional advice directly from industry experts.

The Club offers car parking for up to 400 cars, however, a shuttle service will be arranged that will service local public car parks to assist with the logistics of show visitors.

The Volunteer Marine Rescue (VMR) who provide an invaluable service for boat owners via their radio communications will be present and will be running the sausage sizzle & raffles and manning the car parks. NSW Maritime and the Water Police as well as other industry authorities will also have a presence at the expo.

The event is being supported by the naming rights sponsor Club Marine, promotional supporter Mariner Boating Holidays and media partner The Manly Daily.

Corey Yeung, Club Marine State Manager said, 'The Hawkesbury River is one the most picturesque waterways in NSW and being on a yacht is one the best ways you can enjoy and experience the beauty of Pittwater. The Club Marine Pittwater Sail expo provides a great opportunity for everyone to learn about sailing, meet some industry experts and find out how easy it is to get out on the water.'

Mariner Boating will run a promotion during Sail Expo 2013 for the chance to win a trip for two on a two week yacht rally in a Mediterranean destination during the winter of 2014. The prize will include international airfares and accommodation on a participating yacht for two weeks and has a value of approximately $15,000.

Mariner rallies are now famous for their alternate lay day/sailing day format. They are open to sailors, non-sailors, singles, couples, complete crews and the RPAYC cruising group have been regulars on Mariner events since 2001.

All you have to do is come to Sail Expo and register your interest in participating in this draw with Mariner Boating who will be on the RPAYC stand in the clubhouse. Mariner will announce the 2014 program at the show and will also have details of some specials on the few remaining places still available on the 2013 rally program.

In 2013 Mariner will operate yacht rallies in Greece, Turkey, Croatia and Italy.

Club Marine Pittwater Sail Expo spokesperson Rear Commodore Activities Maurice Gilet said, 'The expo will be a community event and a great opportunity for people to see the club first hand, witness our magnificent waterway of Pittwater and learn more about all aspects of sailing.

There’s already been a very strong level of interest towards this event from all aspects of the boating industry and people will have the opportunity to gain professional advice directly from industry experts. Anyone with an interest in sailing boats or wants to get into sailing is invited to come along.'

The Club Marine Pittwater Sail Expo will be held on 16 & 17 March 2013 between 10am-4pm on the grounds of The Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club located at 16 Mitala St Newport.
