75th Anniversary of Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race

22/10/2018

Members, please see invitation from CYCA

As you may be aware, 2019 is the 75th Anniversary of both the founding of the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia (CYCA) and the first running of the Sydney to Hobart yacht race.
 
To mark this occasion, the CYCA will be running a series of great events throughout the year, culminating on Boxing Day 2019 with the 75th running of the 628-nautical mile Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race (RSHYR) classic.
 
The Club, and our long time principal race sponsor Rolex, are hoping for a bumper fleet in 2019 and I am reaching out to you to ask for your help to promote the great race to your membership.  
 
In 2017 we had a high-quality fleet of 102 including a record 30 international entries and want to help bring as many domestic and overseas entries to Sydney next year.  We would love to see 140+ yachts on the start line on December the 26th!
 
To that end, I share with you a short promotional video depicting the colour and excitement of the race – please do share it with your Members and ask them to reach out to us directly if they are keen to enter:
 
Commodore:                paul.billingham@cyca.com.au
Sailing Manager:          justine.kirkjian@cyca.com.au
 
I would be incredibly grateful of your support as we seek to mark this wonderful milestone in both our Club’s and the Race’s history.
 
Kind regards

Paul Billingham
Commodore
Cruising Yacht Club of Australia
