Entries are now open for the Southport Yacht Club’s spectacular offshore sailing regatta, Bartercard Sail Paradise, staged over three huge days this Kings Birthday October long weekend, September 30 to October 2, 2023.
In its 14th regatta, the three-day spectacular event sees skippers and crew travel from all parts of Australia with magnificent racing staged on the beautiful ocean waters off our stunning Gold Coast.
Races will be sailed on Windward/Leeward and Ocean Passage Courses on the waters off Main Beach and Surfers Paradise and there will be many shoreline vantage points for spectators to take in the racing and the blaze of colour that will come from the yachts’ many and varied spinnakers.
The regatta will take in seven divisions over three days with the divisions being
- Monohull IRC/ORC
- Monohull Performance Racing PHS/ORC
- Monohull Cruising – Spinnaker (PHS)

Vice Commodore of Sailing, Glenn Burrell is thrilled to announce Bartercard’s support. “Bartercard has been a huge supporter of Southport Yacht Club for over 10 years, and it is fantastic to have them on board as the major sponsor for 2023.”
“Support from our sponsors means Southport Yacht Club can deliver a premier regatta that will attract crew from all over to our shores and experience all the Gold Coast has to offer.” He adds.
The Gold Coast is encouraged to come down to the Southport Yacht Club each night to see the spectacular yachts moored up and catch the live entertainment, or grab a vantage point along our spectacular beaches from the Spit southward.
