Event information

Registration for this event closes at Thu 23 May 2024 12:00.

Join us on May 25th and 26th 2024, for the third Women and Girls' Sailing Regatta!

This is the only Women and Girls' regatta for off-the-beach classes in South-East QLD. 

Entry is restricted to female skippers only. Male crews are permitted, however the skipper must be female.

The regatta is a 2-day event, but participation is up to you. You can register for 1 or 2 days of sailing.

The event is an opportunity for serious competitors to first-time regatta participants and offers junior coaching and social networking.

The Regatta continues to grow each year with 40 boats participating in last year's event.

The Queensland Government provided
$7500 to Humpybong Yacht Club for
the Women and Girls Regatta under
the Active Women and Girls Program
to enable Queenslanders to participate
in sport and recreation activities.

Free Coaching 

We are pleased to announce that thanks to a State Government Grant under the ‘Active Women and Girls Program’, we can now offer coaching to all Regatta participants that want to be involved. This is a great opportunity especially to those new to Regatta competitions and those just wanting to improve their competitive or general sailing skills.

We will be offering pre-racing briefs and post-racing debriefings each day, and on-the-water coaching for those that want to be involved. Just let us know when you register on the day. This opportunity is available to all divisions.


Classes and Divisions:

These will be determined by entries received but are likely to be:

Division 1 – Off the beach performance catamarans

Division 2 – Off the beach standard catamarans

Division 3 – Performance Dinghies

Division 4 – Dinghies

Division 5 – Junior fleet to be made up of Opti, Sabot, and Bic entries

Further detail to be provided closer to the event as registrations are confirmed.


Junior Division (5) coaching

A separate Junior Division will be included with its own support boat.

A mini coaching session for the Junior Division will be run each day before racing. This will be run by experienced coaches Erin Cowley and Emily Vivian. 


Regatta T-Shirts ($28)

If you'd like to puchase one of our highly coveted regatta T-Shirts ($28 ea), select your t-shirt size at the link below and email Kate to confirm ( 

Payment will be collected at the regatta when you register.  T-shirt orders will close on Wednesday May 15th (11pm) to allow time for printing (we can only do one run and we need a min. of 16 orders each run). These tend to be a smallish fit (it's suggested going up a size or two for a comfortable fit), so please check your sizing before placing an order with Kate.

The club has 10 Optis for hire at $50.00 (ea.) for the full 2 days of the regatta. Boat hire is available through the registration process, so register quickly to confirm your boat hire as well.
