Australian Sailing regrets to announce that the 2021 Australian Yachting Championships have been cancelled due to the ongoing Covid pandemic.

The event was scheduled to be run as a part of Hamilton Island Race Week (HIRW) from 21-28 August. With the recent news that HIRW was to be cancelled in 2021 it has been decided that the only course of action was to also cancel this year's Championships.

With border closures impacting the ability of entrants from around the country attending a National Championships and safety concerns in the current environment were considered in the decision.

Australian Sailing would like to express sincere thanks to Hamilton Island for their ongoing support of sailing and the Australian Yachting Championships, and for all their hard work that went into the planning of this year's HIRW event.

The 2022 Australian Yachting Championships will be held as a part of Hamilton Island Race week, with dates for the event yet to be confirmed.
