An inaugural Women and Girls only regatta will be held in May at Humpybong Yacht Club, Woody Point.

The regatta will be held over the 15 and 16 May 2021 to encourage female sailors of all ages and skill levels to come together to improve their skills with coaching and social events in the morning followed by racing in the afternoon.

Humpybong Yacht Club President David Begley said that the event will attract a wide range of dinghy and catamaran classes with competitors expected from all over the South East and northern NSW. Additionally, we are catering for female sailors of all ages from 7 to 70.

"The regatta we hope will encourage and attract many women from beginner level to experienced sailors at competition level to take part in an exclusively theirs event."

"We have many excellent female sailors throughout Queensland and interstate. It is time they had a regatta in Bramble Bay to call their own to encourage, support and promote female sailing."

"Many women are in sailing families but allow their partners and children to take up the sport and recreation while they remain as shore based team supporters and ground crew."

"Humpybong Yacht Club believes it is long overdue they had the opportunity to take part in a select event just for them." Mr Begley said.

He said Humpybong Yacht Club actively encourages competitors of all experience levels to get involved offering the full gamut of opportunities to do so.

The club runs classes for 'Tackers,' juniors at entry level to develop their sailing skills. Juniors can then graduate to 'Green Fleet', to learn the ropes of competitive sailing, also for teens and adults new to sailing.

'Discover Sailing' classes are open to adults as an introduction from beginner to advanced levels to gain hands -on- experience and skills development.

Mr Begley said the club also offers regular sailing for more experienced adults including club racing, championships, and social sailing.,

Humpybong Yacht Club also hosts Deaf Sailing Queensland which supports their members to participate in social sailing, club events and regattas.

A women-and-girls only event will become an annual part of the HYC sailing calendar and be welcomed by all sportswomen.
