The Grant Thornton Short Haul and Grant Thornton Short Ocean Pointscore Series sponsorship, by accounting and business advisory firm Grant Thornton, has been extended for a further three seasons up to and including the 2014/2015 series' the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia is pleased to announce today.

The Grant Thornton Short Haul and Grant Thornton Short Ocean Pointscore Series are an integral part of the CYCA’s Summer Sailing Program. Conducted from September to March, the series comprise 25 races and see combined fleets of up to 60 yachts competing in Sydney Harbour and its surrounds

The Grant Thornton Short Ocean Pointscore Series consists of 11 races (including the Australia Day Regatta) which are sailed off Sydney Heads. Each race is approx. 15nm in length and yachts race in IRC and PHS handicap categories.

The Grant Thornton Short Haul Series is a non-spinnaker series that comprises 14 races (including five passage races). The majority of races are sailed off Sydney Heads with some races conducted in the Harbour and at night.

Grant Thornton Marketing Director Lex Melzer commented: 'Grant Thornton is delighted to renew its four year sponsorship of the Grant Thornton Short Haul and Short Ocean Pointscore Series for a further three years. We are very proud to support Australia’s premier ocean racing yacht club – the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia; and hugely enjoy being part of the weekend summer racing fleets, which many of our clients sail in.

'It’s great to be associated with an opportunity to extend the natural collaboration and competition between them in their business lives to friendly – but no less competitive – engagement on the water. The dynamism of yacht racing fits well with Grant Thornton’s mission to unlock the potential of Australia’s most dynamic organisations.'

'Whilst the format of the Short Haul and Short Ocean series doesn’t lend itself to weekly prize giving, Grant Thornton have decided to offer one annual prize of $5,000 worth of tax, accounting or wealth management advice to the owner of one yacht entered into the Grant Thornton sponsored series.'

'To be eligible, yachts must finish in the top three of any of the Grant Thornton sponsored series in the year and the prize will be drawn at random at the annual summer series prize giving.'

The winner for the 2011/12 season prize was Desmond Fagan, owner of Lisdillon. The prize was drawn at the CYCA’s Summer Series 2011/2012 Prizegiving held last Friday evening, 27 April. The announcement of the sponsorship extension was made by Grant Thornton’s Paul Billingham, Managing Partner -National Financial Advisory, to all competitors attending the season celebration.

'On behalf of competitors in the Grant Thornton Short Haul and Short Ocean Pointscore Series, I would like to thank Grant Thornton for continuing their support of the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia,' CYCA Commodore Garry Linacre said.

'The popularity of these series’ with CYCA members have continued to grow each season Grant Thornton has been a sponsor.'

The Grant Thornton Short Haul Series will commence on Sunday 16 September 2012 with the 17th Monica Geddes Memorial Trophy, and concludes on 23 March 2013. The CYCA Members Open Day and Parade of Sail will also be conducted on Sunday 16 September.

The Grant Thornton Short Ocean Pointscore Series will commence on Saturday 29 September 2012, and concludes on 23 March 2013.

Online entry for the series will be available from August on the CYCA website under ‘Sailing’.
