Host club, the RPAYC has also received support from its volunteers to act as ambassadors for visiting yachts when they arrive to berth their yacht at the Newport club on Sydney’s northern beaches for the Club Marine Pittwater and Coffs Harbour Regatta. An ambassador assigned to each visiting yacht will greet the owner and crew on arrival to the RPAYC marina, escort them to the club and show them around the facilities, including the newly renovated Halyards bistro.

To amp up the hospitality even further, on arrival in Coffs Harbour all competitors will receive a cold case of beer and be warmly welcomed at the Club Marine sausage sizzle hosted run by Volunteer Marine Rescue.

The first race of the Club Marine Pittwater and Coffs Harbour Regatta, the 226nm Club Marine Pittwater to Coffs Harbour yacht race starts at 1pm on 2 January. This will be followed by four races in Coffs Harbour over two consecutive days, on Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 January around the majestic Solitary Islands.

There are IRC, PHS, ORCi and shorthanded divisions with all entries given the opportunity to race in all three and in the Australian PHS Championships, an integral part of the regatta.
