2021 SCL:AP – FINAL (Open). Cockatoo Island 16/17/18th April

The SAILING Champions League is coming back to iconic Sydney harbour and have partnered up again with Hunters Hill Sailing Club for this years final. However, we are also very excited to announce that this year the event will be based on Cockatoo Island.

Cockatoo Island will provide a unique and historic backdrop for this event with cafes and outlets right on the water to be, public ferries providing transport every 30 minutes and importantly glamping accommodation right on the harbour so that all participants will be able to stay on the island for the event.

Direct qualifying for the Final will be through the two Qualifying Regattas (Q1&2) and then we will open and invite clubs to compete (subject to travel restrictions) from New Zealand, the Pacific, Asia and other States in Australia who were unable to compete in a Qualifier.

The SCL:AP – FINAL (Open) on the 16/17/18thth April will be the second of back to back regattas as it will be immediately preceded by the SCL:AP-FINAL (U22) 14/15th April, which will mean that many of the youth (U22) will have the chance to compete in both events.

Although far from complete we are wanting to make the SCL:AP Finals different from your normal regattas. First up is the format and style of the racing but equally it is the off water and social experience. A large part of this is that all competitors will be glamping under the stars on the island itself (included in the entry fee) but also the program during the event with breakfast, dinner, movies and music all included. See below preliminary schedule:
