70th Teakle Classic Adelaide to Lincoln Yacht Race

The 2020 Teakle Classic Adelaide to Port Lincoln Yacht Race will be the 70th sailing of our offshore race.  Our Race and Lincoln Week Regatta has an established place in the South Australian sailing season. We are expecting another increase in entries in 2020, particularly as some of our previous entrants find the 70th reunion festivities enticing.


Thanks to all our sponsors and to Teakle Corp especially, as Peter Teakle announced a 3 year extension of contracted sponsorship during the 2019 presentations.  SARIN group continue to assist in ensuring every yacht has a berth in our marina and our local food and beverage vendors are again supporting our event and ensuring you enjoy the race and the week in Port Lincoln.  We know all their assistance ensures the event continues and PLYC and the competing sailors will grow the fleet and produce strong but fair competition on the water.


Our safety record remains excellent and is secured by the reliable functioning of all YB Trackers, enabling our land-based supporters to know the location of every yacht. The tracker accuracy confirms the finish times as recorded by our volunteers at PLYC finish line.  The success of the “four stage races within the race” means we will expand this into scoring in two Yacht divisions and an Offshore Multihull division in 2020.


Increasingly we are getting interest from interstate and 2020 will see more Victorian and New South Wales yachts competing.

2020 Dates

The 70th running of the Adelaide to Port Lincoln yacht race, will start on Friday 21st February 2020.  Our host club will be the Royal South Australian Yacht Squadron for the briefing and start.  Offshore multihulls will start at 1445 and Yachts at 1500.  The Lincoln Week Regatta will run from Monday 24th to Thursday 27th February 2020 using the same format as 2019.  Book your accommodation now using your prior knowledge, or click on the Event Guide tab on our website.  We are coordinating our event with other Sailing events in SA, so we can all enjoy sailing throughout February 2020.

So welcome back to the 2020 race and regatta and bring your sailing friends for the 70th anniversary celebrations.
