Club Marine is proud to announce it has come aboard as naming rights sponsor, jointly with Lexus of Adelaide, of the Adelaide to Port Lincoln Yacht Race and Lincoln Week Regatta, hosted by the Port Lincoln Yacht Club, SA.
As South Australia’s premier ocean racing event, the Club Marine/Lexus Adelaide to Port Lincoln Race (February 21) sees up to 80 boats leave Outer Harbour on Friday to compete in the 156nm race that takes them south west to Marion Reef at the foot of York Peninsula to Cape Spencer, then north west past Wedge and Thistle Islands and Dangerous Reef to Port Lincoln nestled on Boston Bay.
The Club Marine/Lexus of Adelaide Lincoln Week Regatta is South Australia’s largest keelboat sailing regatta, running the week following the yacht race (February 24-27). It provides a mix of courses that make the most of the renowned sailing conditions in Boston Bay and surrounding islands. In recent years Lincoln Week participation has been on the rise, with numbers boosted to around 50 entries thanks to new divisions for multihull, trailable, PHS cruising, and Sydney 38 yachts.
The 2014 regatta will also see some of Australia’s most competitive multihulls battle it out at the Multihull National Championship Titles, being held in conjunction with the Club Marine/Lexus of Adelaide Lincoln Week Regatta.
Club Marine SA/NT State Manager Mike Sinclair said: “Club Marine is proud to be associated with this iconic ocean racing event and regatta and pleased at the opportunity to be a part of one of Australia’s key bluewater races.”
