With an average fleet size of over 175 boats, this regatta is ideal for offering invaluable training for those crews working towards competing in their State, National and World Championships in December and January. Competitors from previous years have enjoyed close competition on the water, which has been of great benefit to their training.
Following the success of last year's event with 195 competitors from 21 countries sailing, the 2005 SIRs is also an opportunity to utilize time on the water and fine tune tactics, whilst observing potential Olympic rivals aiming for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.
Yachting NSW representative and regatta director, Sam CRICHTON is enthusiastic about the forthcoming event, 'We are looking forward to a large SIRs fleet with great competition on the water for everyone,' commented CRICHTON.
The SIRs NOR is available on the Yachting New South Wales website.
