The 2021 Australian Yachting Championships that were scheduled to be held in January next year have been postponed after a review by Australian Sailing.

Australian Sailing will now be exploring options to hold the event from mid-2021.

Several factors were considered when postponing the regatta from its usual January timeslot, one of which was the impact on entries created by the uncertainty of interstate travel due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Australian Sailing would like to thank the clubs who expressed an interest in holding the event this summer and reconfirm our commitment to hosting the regatta in the updated timeframe next year.

With the 2020 Australian Yachting Championships held at the Royal Yacht Club of Tasmania in January this year, by postponing the event until at least July 2021 it will ensure annual continuity of one of the premier keelboat regattas in Australia.

Australian Sailing will open a new Expression of Interest process to host the postponed 2021 event when there is more certainty around when the event might be held.
