2013 Heaven Can Wait Yacht Club Media Centre    


Sat, 16 Nov 2013 to Sun, 17 Nov 2013

The Heaven Can Wait 24 hour race was conceived and promoted by Lake Macquarie resident, keen sailor and cancer survivor Shaun Lewicki as a major annual sailing event on the lake, to promote sailing, the Lake Macquarie/Newcastle/Hunter region – and to raise funds for cancer research.

The inaugural Heaven Can Wait 24 hour race was held on Lake Macquarie during the 2006 October Labour Day Long Weekend and attracted over 30 boats. In 2007, it was again held on Labour Day Long Weekend with the fleet almost doubling in size.

The 2009 event, the Heaven Can Wait 24 Hour yacht Race, One Lap Dash and other races have been scheduled by the Heaven Can Wait Yacht Club for October 3-4, 2009 and a significant growth in fleet size is again expected.

If you own a sailboat that can comply with YA’s Category 5N requirements, start planning now to come along and make your own little bit of history on NSW’s Lake Macquarie during the October 2008 Long Weekend.

Proceeds will benefit the NSW Cancer Council and the Royal Volunteer Coastal Patrol
