The 2021 Gosford team,

Welcome everyone, and thank you for your support.

We hope to have our seven boats with 5 crew (including your skipper).   This J24 regatta is held at Gosford Sailing Club GSC on beautiful Brisbane Waters

Our objective is to get you excited about racing and hopefully get you to work less and sail more. I am delighted that you are able to join my favourite weekend on our sailing calendar. Many of last years group have either joined the Club or are regularly crewing, regardless of what stage you are up to in your sailing courses , this regatta is not as serious as the States or Nationals. It is just great fun and a great introduction to racing.
