Sail Port Stephens gets under way next Monday with the traditional feeder race from Newcastle on Sunday which is expected to bring 30 plus boats from down south ahead of Monday morning's regatta start. Don Grundy - the Commodore of the Corlette Point Sailing Club - the organsing authority is predicting another record fleet. He said today, 'The entries are flooding in. It definitely looks like we are going to exceed last year’s numbers.‘

The growth is particularly strong in the Performance Racing and Performance Cruising fleets and there is some good growth in other fleets, including the Elliott 7 sportsboats who are returning for their second Australian Championships.

'For the last few years the availability of Marina Berths has been a major issue. This year the calendar has helped us. We are in better shape than ever with Marina Berths this year, with Easter and the school holidays being split. A lot of the Game Fishing boats have gone back to Sydney. d'Albora's Nelson Bay is full, but there are still berths at The Anchorage and Soldiers Point Marina.
