70th Adelaide to Port Lincoln Yacht Race - 21st February 2020

Lincoln Week Regatta - Monday, 24th - Thursday, 27th February 2020

***  Don't forget to join our facebook page Adelaide to Port Lincoln Yacht Race & Regatta  ***

The 2019 Teakle Classic Adelaide to Port Lincoln Race and Regatta was a big success, and we thank all the participating yachts and sailors for creating this success.


Thanks also to all our sponsors and to Teakle Corp especially, as Peter Teakle announced a 3 year extension of contracted sponsorship during the race presentations. We know that this 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 team to know the location of every yacht. The tracker accuracy is confirmed by the close agreement of finish times as recorded by our volunteers with the YB reported finish time. The success of the “four stage races within the race” means we will expand this into scoring in two divisions in 2020.


Our growth in entrants this year is largely due to the number of Victorian yachts entered, ranging from a TP52 to trailable yachts and cruiser racers with strong offshore / long distance race experience.

2020 Dates

2020 will be the 70th running of the Adelaide to Port Lincoln yacht race. This will be a special year to celebrate and we expect an even larger fleet than usual. Book your accommodation now for 2020 using your prior knowledge, or click on the Event Guide tab above to assist.

The Teakle Classic Adelaide to Port Lincoln race will start at 1500 on Friday 21st  February 2020 and our host club will be the Royal South Australian Yacht Squadron.

The Lincoln Week Regatta will run from Monday 24th to Thursday 27th February 2020 using the same format as 2019.

We are trying to coordinate our event with other Sailing events in SA, so we can enjoy yacht racing throughout February 2020


Thanks for coming we welcome your feedback on the 2019 race and regatta and bring your sailing friends in 2020 for the 70th anniversary celebrations.
