In support of the outstanding talent and performances by University sailors in Match racing, University Match Racing Sydney want to provide them with a platform and help stage a quality match-racing regatta that would encourage more professionalism and growth in Australian and University sailing.

We are looking forward to hosting the best Australian university teams at our championships.

The Organising Authority for the 2011 RPAYC University Match Racing Championship will be the Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club under the auspices of Yachting Australia. This is also an International Sailing Federation (ISAF) grade 3 event. 8 top university teams (40 sailors) will fight it out against each other on the Force 24 class of yachts.

Our event organiser and host, Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club is one of Australia’s oldest and most prestigious yacht clubs. The Club is situated on Green Point on the pristine body of water called Pittwater, on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. In the sport of sailing it is regarded as one of the leading and premier Yacht Clubs in Australia.

Nautilus Marine Boat Insurance has come in as one of our main sponsors for the championship. Nautilus has also been involved with supporting sailing regattas all over Australia like Sydney’s favorite Olympic class regatta, Sail Sydney. Their sponsorship will assist us in delivering a very memorable championship. For more information about Nautilus Marine Boat Insurance go to their website

In addition, Harken Australia, a leading global manufacturer and marketer of quality sailboat hardware and accessories, have kindly offered their support to the championship. For more information about Harken go to their website

As always, we welcome additional sponsorship from companies keen on being a part of this new and exciting event involving young and promising athletes who possess a positive attitude and a strong desire to win.

We believe this event has the potential to help inspire and create future champions at regattas like the America’s Cup and World Match racing tour. We also believe it serves to promote the sport to universities in Sydney.
