Entries open for 2019 King Island yacht race
Entries are open for the 2019 Melbourne to King Island Yacht race. Starting 11pm on Friday 8th March 2019 it is a great way to spend the Labour day long weekend sailing with friends against a competitve fleet of yachts. Hosted by the King Island Boat Club in Grassy Harbour, the race is famous for it's late night hospitality with cold drinks and hot steak sandwiches made from local beef.
We are hoping for live entertainment depending on the arrival time of competitors, so anchoring for a while and coming in to say hello is a must. Sharing stories, a few beers and lots of laughs, crews generally grab some sleep before heading back to Melbourne again.
The racing is tactical, especially the approach to Grassy with currents and land effects set to challenge competitors. With an earlier start this year we are confident that we will see fleets in within the 24hr window.
So skippers chat to your crews, crews chat to your skippers. Get an entry in soon.
