QOIN SAIL PARADISE 2023 – ENTRY RUSH!
An early rush of entries, propelled by enthusiastic skippers and crew, confirms that Southport Yacht Club’s Qoin Sail Paradise offshore yacht regatta is destined to be bigger and better than ever come January 2023.
It is already confirmed that 26 of the best Grand Prix level offshore racing yachts from Brisbane, the Gold Coast and beyond, have entered Qoin Sail Paradise 2023 and with the extended 5-day format, which includes the flexible Lay Day excursion to Southport Yacht Clubs exclusive Dux Anchorage Island Retreat at South Stradbroke Island, a Welcome Beach Party, a special Sailors Partner Luncheon, Live Entertainment and Big Screen Daily Live Action Feeds – the event is ‘jam packed’ full of sailing and social activities for sailors, their crew and families.
The racecourses are designed to suit the conditions on each race day and are set in close proximity to the Gold Coast’s stunning, golden sandy beaches and may extend as far south to the QLD/NSW border.
“Exciting racing on the water and an equally satisfying social agenda at Southport Yacht Club’s waterfront Race Headquarters at Main Beach, will provide the perfect combination for good times and great entertainment”, said Southport Yacht Club’s Commodore, Drew Jones.
Early this year it was announced that Qoin Sail Paradise 2023 will now be the flagship event of The Summer of Sailing Series Australia (SSSA) an annual premier Sailing Series of 6 Events, jointly hosted by Southport Yacht Club (SYC) Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron (RQYS) and Queensland Cruising Yacht Club (QCYC).
“Skippers who crave even more ‘summer sailing competition’ are jumping on board and entering the series, to take full advantage of the series bonuses of Free Berthing at SYC, $1,000 SYC Club Cash (3+ events) and potential Trophy Accolades and Bragging Rights for both Qoin Sail Paradise 2023 and SSSA” said SYCs Vice Commodore of Sail Glenn Burrell.
“We are delighted that our partnering clubs QCYC and RQYS agreed to be a part our series, which is now attracting more interest due to the bonus opportunities now available to a wider array of yacht categories, said SYC Sailing Operations Manager Simon Turpin.
