Vice Commodore of Sailing, Glenn Burrell is thrilled to announce Bartercard's support. "Bartercard has been a huge supporter of Southport Yacht Club for over 10 years, and it is fantastic to have them on board as the major sponsor for 2023."

"Support from our sponsors means Southport Yacht Club can deliver a premier regatta that will attract crew from all over to our shores and experience all the Gold Coast has to offer." He adds.

The Gold Coast is encouraged to come down to the Southport Yacht Club each night to see the spectacular yachts moored up and catch the live entertainment, or grab a vantage point along our spectacular beaches from the Spit southward.
