The 2019-20 Australian Fireball Championships are coming back to Lake Macquarie in NSW.  

Lake Macquarie is one of the most iconic sailing locations in Australia. Close to the sea it gets a guaranteed NE Sea Breeze which slowely builds diuring the afternoon.  Many world champions claim Lake Macquarie the location they learnt to sail and where they still love to sail!!

The regatta will be hosted by Wangi Amateur Sailing Club, situated next to the local RSL to ensure a great social event to match the awesome on water activites.  

Check out all the info for the yacht club here.

Notice of race will ba available soon.
