We are fortunate to enjoy one of the best playgrounds for our sport that nature could provide and in 2023 we'll host a six race series sailed on the beautiful waters of the Coral Sea on Trinity Bay, Port Douglas.

The regatta will be held over 5 days, with the first day of racing commencing on Tuesday 23rd of May and concluding on Saturday 27th May.
