Date of event: September 24-26, 2021
Locale: Pittwater, NSW
We regret to announce that the 2021 PITTWATER RALLY has been cancelled.
New dates will be announced in 2022.
Weather circumstances in the NSW region forced us to postpone the event back in April, and now the extended lockdown in Sydney has disrupted our plans to reschedule it in September. We look forward to bringing this event back in 2022 and we will let you know when new dates have been decided.
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.
