On behalf of the Middle Harbour Yacht Club it is my great pleasure to welcome you to the 2018 Sydney Short Ocean Racing Championship, this being the 41st Anniversary of the opening offshore regatta of the season.
Widely regarded as ideal preparation for the serious yachts entering the major offshore races each summer, 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.
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.
Yours in sailing
