Event Chairman's Welcome

Welcome from Event Chairman, Mark Klemens. 

As past Chairman of the World Cup Final held in Melbourne last year, I am excited to continue  in the  role of Chairman of Sail Melbourne International Regatta. Melbourne has a history of the Sail Melbourne Regatta and the World Cup now, and we are continuing in the tradition of providing an exciting and challenging event in the lead up to Christmas and Australia’s summer of sailing.

What a great opportunity for those from overseas particularly where winter awaits to come to the sporting capital of Australia in November/December. What a great chance for those from interstate and in Victoria to embrace this pinnacle event.

We are delighted that Royal Brighton Yacht club will be hosting this event open to all the Olympic classes and many invited classes. The club is the perfect venue on port Phillip Bay to hold this . All the competitors will be close enough to the “action" in our great city. 

I am proud to be involved and I hope to welcome as many of you as possible to the Regatta.

Mark Klemens
