2015 Australian Multihull Nationals

The Australian 2015 Multihull Nationals will be hosted by MYCV and held at Royal Geelong Yacht Club in January 2015.

The regatta will be seven races starting on Saturday 17th Jan and finishing on Wed 21st Jan, with the presentation after the final race on the 21st.

There will then be a two race passage series (with its own trophies, not part of the Nationals, and including the existing Festival of Sails (FOS) line honours trophy), with a Geelong-Melbourne race on Thurs 22nd and then the FOS Melb-Geelong race on Fri 23rd. The aim is to encourage as many multihulls as possible to join in the FOS passage race.

After the Melbourne-Geelong FOS passage race there will be no further FOS multi races.

The entry fee will be $375, which will cover both the Nationals and the passage race series. There will be two divisions for trailerables/high performance multis and a third division for cruising/offshore multis.

NOR will be out soon. Keep an eye out here and on rgyc.com.au.
