2013 Pittwater Rendezvous

Welcome to the Inaugural Pittwater Rendezvous held in conjunction with the 2013 Lock Crowther Multihull Regatta!

Dates: 4 – 6 October 2013

Cruising multihulls are invited to set sail for an adventurous weekend on the stunning waterways of Sydney’s Pittwater region within sight of some of the most exciting multihull racing in the country, all in honour of famed multihull designer Lock Crowther.

The Rendezvous is a casual multihull sailing event specifically designed for fun, socialising and unforgettable cruising. Enjoy a relaxed itinerary of sailing in company with other multihull enthusiasts, exchange cruising stories and sailing tips, inspect the range of participating catamarans and trimarans, meet new friends and take in the spectacular scenery of Pittwater.

This is not a racing event and the emphasis of the Rendezvous is on having fun so there are frequent stops for social functions and downtime for relaxation with friends or in the tranquillity of your own multihull. Prizes are awarded for participants who best embrace the spirit of the Rendezvous!

The Pittwater Rendezvous will be run from the Royal Motor Yacht Club (RMYC) in Newport. Online registration is now available by clicking here.

Special racing insurance coverage is not required, however we do require you ensure all appropriate personal insurance is in order.

Who can enter?

Set against the magnificent waterways of Pittwater, anyone can join in for a weekend of sailing and serious fun! Any brand of multihull, private or charter, power or sail, large or small, as long as your vessel is a multihull you are welcome to enter!

Pittwater Rendezvous Rules:
