2013 Lock Crowther Memorial Regatta, biggest yet with addition of the Multihull Rendezvous
The 2013 APC Logistics Lock Crowther Multihull Regatta (LCMR) is set to be the biggest yet with this year’s event adding a fun-filled Multihull Rendezvous to complement its traditional racing program.
Set over the October long weekend, 4-6 October, 2013 the LCMR sees the Royal Motor Yacht Club Broken Bay join forces with Multihull Solutions to create an event that caters for both competitive and cruising multihull enthusiasts.
As well as the traditional LCMR racing program that includes a series of offshore and inshore races, the Multihull Rendezvous invites cruising multihulls to enjoy an unforgettable social rally in the beautiful waterways of Broken Bay.
Multihull Solutions, Australia and New Zealand’s leading multihull brokerage, has run the popular Whitsunday Multihull Rendezvous for several years, and the LCMR Regatta now enables southerners to experience this successful cruising concept.
The Multihull Rendezvous is open to multihulls of all makes and sizes, including Fountaine Pajot, Seawind, Grainger, Schionning and Oram catamarans, and the event comprises a relaxed itinerary of casual sailing, themed parties, and social events that embrace a spirit of fun.
Meanwhile competition is expected to be fierce in the LCMR’s racing division with a large number of entries expected from all around Australia including Shaun Carroll’s new Seacart 30 trimaran Morticia, Foxy and Two Tribes from Lake Macquarie, and Indian Chief, Voodoo Spirit, Quickstep and Lukim Yu from RMYC’s fleet. Corsair and Farrier trimarans will also be setting a hot pace against their catamaran rivals in the Blue Water Classic ocean race on Friday as well as four exhilarating inshore races on Saturday and Sunday.
Both racing and cruising entrants will enjoy a social programme that includes a welcome BBQ on Friday and a fun, themed party on Saturday evening. The weekend will close with a Presentation Dinner on Sunday where winners of both divisions will receive prizes provided by the event sponsors.
Trailerable multihulls having access to a launching ramp and parking, while berths and moorings can be organised by contacting the RMYC on 02 9997 5511.
This year’s event enjoys its eighth year of support from principal sponsor, Australian-based international air and sea freight forwarder, APC Logistics. The 2013 LCMR is also supported by Quantum, Tactical Directions, Hood Sailmakers, Barracouta Sails, Contender/Selden, Multihull World magazine, Summit Coatings, Geddes Optical, Mitre 10 and Two Rivers wines.
