On behalf of Middle Harbour Yacht Club, it is my pleasure to invite you to participate in the 41st Sydney Short Ocean Racing Championship (SSORC).
MHYC’s rich history in Offshore Sailing will have another chapter written as the 41st event of SSORC marks the beginning of the regatta season in Sydney. Widely regarded as a tune-up for the serious yachts and crews campaigning for the annual offshore racing season, the SSORC is also another opportunity for regatta regulars to take on the blue water in the brilliant Sydney sunshine.
For this year’s edition, Saturday will be a competitive Ocean Passage Race. At same time, the fun and challenging Seven Islands Race will be held for inshore yachts.
The 2018 event will also have the added attraction of a fleet of TP52’s joining the 2 days of racing to add more colour, spectacle and competition to the overall event.
In response to competitor feedback, MHYC is returning the short windward-leeward format with three races scheduled on the Sunday to provide competitive racing for all types of boats.
Following each day of racing, all skippers and crew are invited back to the MHYC beach to relax and unwind after the day’s challenges!
We look forward to welcoming you to a premier sailing event and to seeing you on the start line or at the Club on 24th & 25th November 2018!
