It is official!

We have known this for some time but it has now been confirmed in writing that the MYC will be the host for the OCEANA Laser Class National Regatta.

NEW DATE Jan 1st- Jan 9th 2019 (See the pdf below.)

So its full steam ahead with the planning and management of what will be the largest sailing event to be ever held on the North WestCoast.

Image the spectacle of 200-300 lasers yachts heading down the Mersey River and watching them from the Bluff light-house.

We will have Olympic champions and international sailors from upto 14 countries competing in the worlds most popular one design class.

This is a massive opportunity for the MYC to showcase what the Devonport region has to offer to hundreds of guests from all over the world.

This March long weekend the MYC hosted the Tasmanian State Laser titles over three days.

Visiting Victorian high performance coach, Mark Tonner-Joyce described the Mersey Yacht Club facilities and Bass Strait race track as both being fantastic.

Mark also said the standard of racing by the Tasmanian athletes was excellent and a credit to the Tasmanian Laser Association development initiative as well

as the Tasmanian institute of Sport program led by Head Coach, Richard Scarr. Sam King said the

"racing in the waters off Mersey Bluff was the fairest water and most suited to laser sailing he had been on recently."

I will be providing regular updates as this project matures.
