As well as bringing the dates for the club’s flagship event forward in the summer
season, organisers have opted to widen the appeal of Bartercard Sail Paradise by
extending the number of racing days to four, and adding a special lay-day/fun-day
event for the sailors, their families and friends to enjoy. This will be a full-day
of relaxation at Southport Yacht Club’s island hideaway, Dux, which is located on
South Stradbroke Island.
The Annual Sail Paradise Series, expecting to attract more than 60 Yachts, this years’
regatta will be home for many well-known vessels and sailors. From the more competitive
Grand Prix to Cruising this is a great spectators sport, families and friends have
the chance to enjoy the many holiday pleasures on the Gold Coast.
The public will be able to view Bartercard Sail Paradise from the beaches and high-rise
buildings, watch the yachts depart for racing through the Seaway and return each
day, and see the yachts berthed at the Southport Yacht Club.
