2016 L2H Info Night
This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Launceston to Hobart yacht race. The Derwent Sailing Squadron in conjunction with the Tamar Yacht Club will again conduct the race starting from Beauty Point on Tuesday 27th December 2016.
The Commodore of the Derwent Sailing Squadron would like to extend an invitation to all eligible yacht owners to participate in this year’s event. The Squadron is hoping for a record number of entries this year to mark the significant 10th anniversary of what has become Tasmania’s most prestigious offshore race. The Squadron is promoting the event widely throughout Tasmania and interstate and we are expecting a number of entries from Victorian and South Australian yacht clubs
The race this year will again be sponsored by National Pies who will invest significant capital and time in promoting the race and ensuring that the 10th anniversary will be a major yachting event in the end of year sailing calendar.
The Derwent Sailing Squadron will host an information night on Wednesday 13th July at the Derwent Sailing Squadron clubrooms at 7pm to promote the race and brief competitors on the plans for this year’s race. The information night will of course be extremely valuable for first-time competitors but there will also be some new information for those who have competed before. The Squadron is hoping that as many past competitors who can will attend the information night to pass on their experiences of the race both from a preparation and competing point of view and in some ways can act as mentors for the first-time entrants.
On Behalf of the Derwent Sailing Squadron we again extend a warm invitation to consider entering the 10th anniversary of the Launceston to Hobart yacht race and hope to see you all on Wednesday 13th July.
See you there!
