Great Veterans Race

The Crusing yacht Club of Australia's Winter Series begins on a Sunday late in April, with Ladies Day and the Great Veterans Race combining with the Parade of Sail.

The Great Veterans Race is open to yachts 30 years of age (pre - 1983) and over that have competed in a Sydney Hobvart Yacht Race. This includes such craft as KATHLEEN GILLETT, ARCHINA, LOVE & WAR and WAYFARER. The Great Veterans Race is a non-spinnaker, round the harbour race, usually two laps of a course.

After the event, presentation of the Windward Trophy along with prizes for placegetters on corrected time takes place at the CYCA Clubhouse.
