The regatta is relocating from its usual spot in Victoria Harbour.

Around 40 boats will race against each other using the RHKYC Around the Island handicap systems, with Etchells, J/80 and Sportsboat fleets competing for the Long Course title, and Dragon, Flying Fifteen, Impala, Pandora and Ruffian classes racing for Short Course honours.

With a drop in temperatures and decent breeze forecast, competitors should be in for a good weekend’s racing, with two races scheduled for Saturday afternoon and three races back-to-back on Sunday. Winners will be presented with their silverware at the Jeanneau Class Regatta Prizegiving, which will take place on the Main Lawn at RHKYC’s Kellett Island on Monday, March 14.
