Each year boats compete in a 24 hour regatta across a number of categories while raising funds in support of the Hunter branch of Cancer Council NSW. Marmong Point Marina would like to thank all the amazing teams of sailors and boats that competed and raised funds for a worthwhile cause in 2021.
The regatta is held across the full area of our beautiful Lake Macquarie with races run in parallel for various categories. One Lap Dash, Short One Lap Dash for Yachts, Multi hulls, Off The Beach boats and Trailer Sailers, 12 Hour Race, and 24 Hour race. Teams can enter one or more of the races with the exception of the Short One Lap Dash,
2021 marks the 15th year for the Regatta with more than $300,000 raised since the inaugural event.
Special thanks goes out to Mel Steiner and the Toronto RMYC team for their huge effort organising and running another successful Heaven Can Wait Charity Sailing Regatta on our beautiful Lake Macquarie. Our sincere thanks also goes out to the hard working and caring Lake Macquarie Marine Rescue team for their support over the weekend.
