You can now enter in the Harken SA Summer of Sail Festival, a major local sailing event that brings together three clubs and an array of classes for two weeks of great local sailing.

The event is made up of three four-day regattas:

  • Sail Brighton, hosted at the Brighton & Seacliff Yacht Club from 28-31 December 2020.
  • Sail Adelaide, hosted at the Adelaide Sailing Club from 3-6 January 2021
  • Sail Largs, hosted at the Largs Bay Sailing Club from 7-10 January 2021
All of the events are designed for a range of different classes, giving sailors more choice and also providing our sport with a major local event to participate in this summer, given how many national championships have been cancelled due to COVID-19.

You can enter now but also not have to pay until later on (December 18), so you are encouraged to show your support for the event and enter early.

Click here to enter now.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in contact with Festival Coordinator Harry Fisher via email at .

The event is owned and run by Down Under Sail, in conjunction with the host clubs.
