The 2020 Balmain Regatta is all set to go-ahead this Sunday, 25 October.
Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 restrictions, the usually popular post-race party on the deck will not happen this year. However, the on-water race is going ahead.
Hosted by the Balmain Sailing Club, the Balmain Regatta was first held in 1849. It is Australia’s oldest sailing regatta and is a celebration of Balmain’s place in the rich maritime history of Sydney Harbour.
Competitors will race in fleets made up of Classic Historical Sailing Skiffs; Classic Yachts, Cruising Yachts, Modern Racing Yachts and Sports Boats.
The organisers are asking competitors to conform with current Public Health orders issues by the NSW Department of Health and recommendations of Australian Sailing.
