Noosa Yacht and Rowing Club Gaff Rig Regatta to be held on 5th June 2022

by Phil Atkins 20 Feb 2022 22:07 PST 5 June 2022

The Noosa Yacht and Rowing Club are conducting on the 5th of June 2022, the 3rd annual Gaff Rig Sailing Regatta. In 2019 the inaugural NYRC Gaff rig regatta attracted a small but enthusiast fleet of Gaff, Sprit and Lug sail yachts, all of varying designs, sizes, age and hull materials.

Unfortunately the 2020 NYRC Gaff Rig regatta had to be cancelled due to Covid 19 restrictions.

Last year 2021 our fleet numbers tripled from the inaugural regatta. Entries included a number of interstate boats despite the further complications of Covid 19 and border restrictions.

For 2022 NYRC are planning a Regatta event with over 25 entries and diverse range of yacht designs.

A few features of the 2022 Gaff regatta:

  • All proceed from the Regatta go to the Noosa Charity Sailability, which gives disabled people the opportunity to learn to sail
  • The regatta dates coincide with the Noosa Come Together River bank festival.
  • Our major sponsor will again supply the very well accepted winner and place getter prizes of Bundaberg Rum.
  • Other Nautical prizes from our sponsors are available for various yacht results and performance.
  • Entries are open to any design of Gaff Rig or similar sail plans. Hulls can be wood, fibreglass or any other material. The yacht types can be Keel, Centreboard, Trailer Sailor yachts. Dinghy designs with Sprit, Gunter or similar rigs like Mirrors, Herons etc are also most welcome.
  • If an extended stay other than the regatta is considered in the Noosa area (we can assist with accommodation, boat/trailer storage, moorings etc.) there a number of activities available including:
    • A casual river raid sail or cruise on the beautiful Noosa River or sail to the world famous Noosa Everglades.
    • The Bribie Island Classic Boat regatta in late May. www.facebook.com/bribieaquaticcommunityevents.4507
    • Endless sightseeing in the Noosa hinterland, Biodiveraty and National Parks, view more at one of our sponsors web site www.visitnoosa.com.au
    • Just chilling out at the famous Hasting street shops and beach where the weather is balmy in June and the ocean beach water is warm.
  • A participants review of the 2021 regatta is available at boatgoldcoast.com.au/trailerable-cygnets-at-noosa-gaff-rig-regatta-everglades-cruising
