We have received an amazing number of interested yacht owners’ and crews who have registered their intent to enter and start the race on December 27th 2017 (Day after Boxing Day). 

Coffs Harbour Yacht Club are very excited that the tradition of the race will continue and look forward to providing ideal facilities and a huge Coffs welcome for the fleet when they arrive around the 28th - 29th December. There are plenty of social activities planned around the harbour precinct leading into the New Year celebrations. 

We invite mono hulled yacht owners to enter under IRC, ORCi or PHS and for the multihulls, an OMR division is also included. 

This will be a Safety Category 3 plus race. Details for compliance is included in the NOR and other Race documents. We will be supplying detailed information for hiring safety equipment for the race in the near future.
