Southport Yacht Club hosts 2013 XXXX Sail Paradise Regatta
Southport Yacht Club is once again hosting the excellent XXXX sponsored Sail Paradise Regatta.
From the following Sail-World article submitted by Bronwen Ince
For the second year running XXXX Sail Paradise, Gold Coast will be the first event in the Queensland's Season of Sailing campaign. Queensland’s Season of Sailing campaign aims to raise the perception that ‘Queensland is Australia’s premier sailing destination’. Part of this goal is to broaden the awareness and exposure of sailing events and experiences in the state by promoting a series of major race events along the Queensland coast under one sailing banner.
With only three weeks until the launch of XXXX Sail Paradise, Southport Yacht Club have been busy preparing for the expected 50 plus vessels to the event.
Three courses will be raced during the regatta, with the IRC Division 1 and 2 sailing windward/Leeward, Performance Racing sailing passage races down the Gold Coast, Coastline and the smaller fleet of Blazers, Off-The-Beach Catamarans and Etchells sailing Windward/Leeward courses.
