Sydney International Regatta
Sydney

Over 220 elite sailors from 12 countries will to take to the harbour this weekend in the 2004 Sydney International Regatta.

166 entries have been received so far from Finn, 49er, 420, 470, Mistral, 29er, Laser, Tornado, 505, OK Dinghy, Laser Radial and 4.7 classes, promising another successful regatta on Sydney Harbour.

The Laser fleet will be the largest, as an ISAF Grade 1 event it has drawn 52 competitors from Australia, India, New Zealand, UK, Chile, Canada, United States, Finland, Singapore, Malaysia and Czechoslovakia. Tom Slingsby, Nick Skulander, Richard Perini and Brendan Casey are among the Australian contingent racing in the class.

In other classes Olympian Darren Bundock will be racing a Tornado and in a change for both sailors, Youth 420 World Champion Nathan Outteridge will skipper a 49er with Tornado Olympian John Forbes.

This will be the 13th year Yachting NSW has organised the Sydney International Regatta, which will be conducted from the Woollahra Sailing Club at Rose Bay.

The Olympic, Youth and invited classes will be racing on the courses previously used for the 2000 Olympics. SIRs will provide valuable training time prior to the various State, National and World Championships being held in December and January on Sydney Harbour.

SIRs forms part of the Sail Down Under series with Sail Brisbane held in December, Sail Melbourne in January and Sail Auckland in January and February.
