Pittwater and Coffs Harbour Regatta - Coffs Harbour
• Saturday 02 January 2016 to Tuesday 05 January 2016
A popular alternative to the Sydney Hobart yacht race, the annual Pittwater and Coffs Harbour Regatta attracts the cream of the offshore racing fleets for the 226 nautical mile race north. Dubbed the 'warm water classic' it leaves Pittwater on 2 January, bound for Coffs Harbour. The race offers competitors a strategic challenge, racing between the surfline and the current, past unsurpassed scenic coastlines, prior to arriving in one of Australia's most popular coastal cities.
The five race regatta is centred on the popular holiday destination of Coffs Harbour with four races in Coffs Harbour including sprint races followed by longer offshore races around the majestic South Solitary Islands.
