Date of event: April 9-11, 2021
Locale: Pittwater, NSW
As a result of recent weather circumstances in the NSW region, we are postponing the Pittwater Rally until further notice.
We are taking the advice of the NSW Roads and Maritime Services who have asked the public to limit their use of the Hawkesbury to essential activity only.
It is disappointing to cancel another Pittwater Rally, with COVID-19 stopping us last year, however the safety of our participants is always our top priority. We look forward to announcing new dates when we know it is safe to sail down the Hawkesbury again. In the meantime all participants will receive a full refund. An email regarding this will be sent individually next week.
Please stay tuned for new dates as they are arranged.
The Yacht Sales Co and Multihull Solutions will be hosting the annual Pittwater Owners Rally in 2021. This is a casual event designed to be a social gathering of yachts of all sizes enjoying a weekend of boating fun.
The event is run as a true cruising rally through Pittwater with frequent stops for social functions, exploring and relaxing. “Fun” is the main focus of the event and great prizes will be awarded to those best embracing the spirit of the rally.
It is our aim to ensure all participants enjoy sailing in company with other yacht enthusiasts along with having time to gain and share knowledge and advice with fellow cruisers, meet new friends and enjoy the magnificent waters of Pittwater.
