Adelaide to Port Lincoln Yacht Race - Friday, 17th February 2017
Lincoln Week Regatta - Monday, 20th to Thursday, 23rd February 2017
On behalf of the Port Lincoln Yacht Club I am pleased to announce a new major sponsor for the Adelaide to Port Lincoln Yacht Race and Lincoln Week Regatta.
Can I first say how grateful we are that we have had great companies like “Lexus of Adelaide” and “Club Marine” support our event and wish them every success in their future.
Peter Teakle has long been a supporter of sailing in Port Lincoln and has helped the club establish its Optimist fleet and has donated Sydney 32’s for our junior sailing programme. With the return of two Sydney 32’s this year we hope to be able to get junior and senior sailors introduced to offshore sailing. I would like to invite you to be part of the “Teakle Classic Adelaide to Port Lincoln Yacht Race and Lincoln Week Regatta.
In 2017 the tradition will continue to hold the states premier offshore race from Adelaide to Port Lincoln. We hope we can encourage you to participate in this great overnight destination race. You may be considering it for the first time or you may be an old hand at it adding to your tally of Adelaide to Lincoln races.
The “Teakle Classic Adelaide to Port Lincoln Yacht Race” starts in Adelaide on Friday 17th February, arriving in Port Lincoln on Saturday, followed by presentations at the Port Lincoln Yacht Club with celebrations, food and music from lunchtime on Sunday.
The “Teakle Classic Lincoln Regatta” kicks off on the Monday with windward leewards, various coastal and harbour racing courses providing something for everyone
For those familiar with our event, you will appreciate the effort that goes in to organising the racing schedule as well as the social events that take place at various venues in Port Lincoln. In 2017, we aim to showcase more local produce and offer experiences to participants and support crews and families visiting Eyre Peninsula for this outstanding event. Sample fresh seafood with local wines, try and catch a fish from the beach, or learn the best ways to cook your catch. It’s all part of the Eyre Peninsula experiences we want you to enjoy above and beyond your racing week with us for this regatta.
The “Teakle Classic Lincoln Regatta” hosts one of the best known BBQ lunches on the Wednesday after a morning of racing. Non-sailors, sponsors, friends and invited locals join participants for one of the best beach BBQ’s held in the Port Lincoln National Park.
The presentation night at the Port Lincoln Hotel on the Thursday evening is always a celebration to end a successful week. We encourage everyone to stay on Eyre Peninsula longer and enjoy the pristine waters of Coffin Bay only 40km from Port Lincoln and explore the coastlines.
We always aim to increase numbers of boats competing in all classes for our regatta, including AMS, sports/trailerables and cruising division. Encourage sailing friends and family to join you for the “Teakle Classic Adelaide to Port Lincoln Yacht Race and Lincoln Week Regatta” and experience the magic of Eyre Peninsula waters and hospitality.
Whether it’s your first experience, your favourite regatta of the year or you are thinking its time you came back please come and join us for a great week of sailing and socialising in Port Lincoln.
