Pantaenius Newport to Coffs Coast Yacht Race

The 37th running of the 'Coffs Race' is on again this year and will return to its traditional start date of the 27th of December.

With the support of the yacht insurance company Pantaenius as the major sponsor, the 'Coffs Race' in its new format, will be named the Pantaenius Newport to Coffs Coast Yacht Race. The Royal Motor Yacht Club in partnership with Coffs Harbour Yacht Club will host the race that will start in Pittwater and finish at Coffs Harbour.

There is already great interest in the race. Together with sponsors CUB, Robert Oatley Wines, Musto and Road Tech Marine the RMYC has created a promotion offer to encourage skippers to complete their registration paper-work before the busy Christmas period begins and lodge their entry forms.

Coffs Harbour is keen to welcome all competitors and supporters to their city. The Yacht Club has organised a fantastic social program to celebrate the race and see in the New Year.

The timing of the race is ideal for yacht owners and crews to be involved during the Christmas/New Year period. The race has been classified as a Safety Category 3 plus event. That means no HF Radio required. Check the website for details.
