Being confined to land over lockdown has inspired the emergence of a new offshore race from Sydney to Port Stephens, the Pantaenius Breakout Series.
Starting in Sydney Harbour on Saturday August 8, arriving at Pittwater to overnight at the Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club. Followed on Sunday by racing further up the road to the Newcastle Cruising Yacht Club. On the Monday there is the race to our final destination, Port Stephens, and this is followed by a lay day.
There will be three days of racing from the Wednesday, with a passage race out and around all the islands and back. Anyone who knows the area will know just how tactical this will be. There is then two more days of racing inside, before boats can make their way home.
