General information

The George Mac Regatta, RBYC’s premier off-the-beach event, will be held on February 17 & 18, 2018.

The regatta will bring together off-the-beach sailors of all ages from  around  the bay and interstate. Invited classes include all junior and youth classes, along with a variety of monhull open classes including 470, 420, 29er, 49er, FX, 2.4mR, Laser 4.7, Laser Radial, Laser Open.  The Victorian Championships for the Finn and RS100 classes will be held as part of the George Mac Regatta this year.

The historic George Mac regatta has been a long-term fixture on the RBYC and the Bay junior sailing calendar after being founded as an annual event to honour the late George “Nugget” McCallum. 2015 marked the relaunch of the event as a multi-class off-the-beach regatta for all age groups. Prizes are awarded within each division, with the winner of the junior division being awarded the prestigious George McCallum Cup.

This event forms part of RBYC’s commitment to supporting off-the-beach sailing and racing, which has included the recent hosting of Sail Melbourne International, the 2015 Victorian Optimist State Championships and the 2016-17 Victorian Junior & Youth Championships.

The Club boasts first rate facilities, including an extensive and newly-expanded rigging and boat-storage area, a sheltered boat launching area, and ideal sailing conditions for all ages, along with extensive on-shore facilities for competitors and supporters to enjoy. The regatta is also ideally timed for preparation ahead of State championships.
