Yacht Racing –  one of the cheapest and easiest sports to get involved in. ( As crew anyway!)

Manly Sailing crew love their racing and are always keen to get in amongst the fleets on Sydney Harbour and at some of the biggest events in Australia and Overseas.

Check out our YouTube Channel manlysailing for lots of footage of Manly Sailing Racing

We have many opportunites to get you involved in Yacht Racing, whether its Twilights, at Club Level, at major regattas or even offshore.

If you have completed a course with Manly Sailing you can join our Crew Register for free. We will put you in touch with Skippers who are looking for regular crew so you can test your sailing skills and get your competitive edge going.



Manly Sailing attends most major regattas in Australia and offer individual crew places to those who want to get that Regatta Experience.

The Manly Sailing Crew goes to these regattas with one aim in mind – to have as much fun as possible, both on and off the water.  Crew who have joined us in recent years still talk about their experiences and in fact a lot of them come back with us each year.


Airlie Beach Race Week 

The Tropical Regatta! Airlie Beach Race Week is a favorite among sailors for it’s fantastic racing and relaxed laid back social vibe. The locals of Airlie Beach go all out to make everyone welcome.

This year you can race aboard the legendary Maxi Yacht “Condor”. Take the helm, man the grinders and experience the thrill of sailing a maxi yacht. No experience is needed. Previous guests have ranged from first timers to experienced ocean racers. There is no age limit. We tailor your Race Week experience to suit your individual skill level.

Hamilton Island Race Week 

The regatta to be seen at. It’s always a big show with all the premier yachts and crews in Australia competing alongside regular sailors.

Fantastic racing, a huge social scene and the opportunity to be part of Australias Premier Regatta – whats not to like. Again we have opportunities for you to race on board the mighty Condor who are racing for their 10th consecutive year.

2017 will be Condors 10th year at Hamilton Island Race Week. Over the years time they’ve made it onto the daily podium at least once most years, finishing in the top three in our division on handicap. Condor won Cruising Division 1 overall in 2010 and came third in 2011.

In recent years Cruising Division 1 has been the place to be with Condor, Hammer, Whitebirds (formally Bobsled) Helsal 3 (formally the Office) and Maxi Ragamuffin contesting both regattas. Some fantastic racing has been had between the yachts where in one race in 2013, 4 yachts rounded the last mark after 3.5hours of racing all overlapped!
Hamilton Island 2008 contest was the first regatta Condor has sailed since retirement from the maxi circuit.
