On behalf of the Middle Harbour Yacht Club it is my great pleasure to welcome you to the 2017 Sydney Short Ocean Racing Championship, this being the 40th Anniversary of the he opening offshore regatta of the season.
Widely regarded as ideal preparation for the serious yachts entering the major offshore races each summer, the SSORC is also another opportunity for regatta regulars to take on the blue water in the brilliant Sydney sunshine.
For this year’s 40th anniversary edition, Saturday will be a competitive Ocean Passage Race. At same time, the fun and challenging Seven Islands Race will be held for inshore yachts.
MHYC is introducing some innovations for the Sunday racing, replacing the shorter race format with a single Ocean Race using a hybrid course of laid and virtual marks to provide competitive racing for all types of boats.
Yours in sailing
