Garry Holt, Skipper of 'Get It On', has enthusiastically confirmed his participation in the 14th Bartercard Sail Paradise Regatta which is Southeast Queensland's largest regatta, scheduled from September 30th to October 2nd, 2023. (Registration Friday September 29th)

Following his remarkable triumph at the recent Sail Paradise Regatta January, earlier this year, Garry has made a strategic decision. Despite the success of his yacht "Get It On", Garry believes that his other vessel, "Let's Get It On" (Sail number SYC888), is better suited for Australian Racing conditions. As a result, he will be racing aboard "Let's Get It On" in the upcoming Sail Paradise event.

Built in 2004 and boasting a striking blue hull and gold carbon mast, "Let's Get It On" is a Corby 36 that has clinched victories at major regattas on the Asian Yachting Circuit. It earned the title of Australian IRC Champion in 2012 and has secured wins in prestigious events like Brisbane to Gladstone, Geelong Raceweek, and Sail Paradise in its early years.

Recently, "Let's Get It On" received a comprehensive upgrade, including new components, rigging, instruments, sails, and a fresh coat of paint, all in preparation for Sail Paradise in October. Garry is determined to 'defend his title' with "Let's Get It On" and is confident that his yacht is poised for victory. With fierce competitors like Maritimo, Aramex, Black Diamond, Wedgetail, and more, Garry Holt is eagerly anticipating the competitive racing that lies ahead.
