Milson Silver Goblets 13-17 November

The Sydney fleet will host one of the marquee events on the annual Australian Etchells racing calendar, a unique five-race midweek series called the Milson Silver Goblets to be sailed out of the Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron in the twilight from 13-17 November. The time of day makes the most of minimal harbour traffic and daylight savings, with beautiful late afternoon spring conditions on Sydney’s world famous harbour.

“Goblets is the start of things getting serious for those hoping to qualify for next year’s world championship,” said Fleet Captain Mike Tyquin. “The Silver Goblets leads into the nationals in Perth then back to RSYS for the NSW state champs in February, and from that follows a world qualification series in March-April.

“As well as being one of Australia’s largest fleets, the Sydney fleet is one of the most competitive in the country with owners who have recently been on big campaigns with professional crew for the worlds in San Francisco and last month’s Queensland championships.”

Racing will take place after 1745 hours over five consecutive evenings from November 13 to 17 on a track likely to be between Kirribilli Point and South Head. The presentation dinner will be held at RSYS on Saturday 18 November.
