Rat Race Regatta

Several years ago a couple of local Hartley 18 sailors had an impromptu race in the waters near Clayton Bay and Rat Island. The course was up the Goolwa Channel from Clayton, through Snug Cove and Dunn’s Lagoon, across Marshall’s Bight, behind Rat Island and back to Clayton. Next day, they did it again, but in the opposite direction. The Rat Race Regatta was born….

The Rat Race Regatta is held in March and is open to all boats of the following general classes:

  • Division 1 (Dinghy)
  • Division 2 (Trailer Sailer)
  • Division 3 (Junior Dinghy)
  • Division 4 (Multihull – OTB and Trailerable)

Course directions (clockwise or anti-clockwise) will alternate on each day of the Regatta and will be advised at the Briefing.
