The Multihull Solutions Pittwater Rally is a casual event designed to be a social gathering of multihulls of all sizes enjoying a weekend of boating fun.
The event is run as a true cruising rally through Pittwater with frequent stops for social functions, exploring and relaxing. “Fun” is the main focus of the event and great prizes will be awarded to those best embracing the spirit of the rally.
It is our aim to ensure all participants enjoy sailing in company with other multihull enthusiasts along with having time to gain and share knowledge and advice with fellow cruisers, meet new friends and enjoy the magnificent waters of Pittwater.
