The Long Beach Regatta
So what is the LBR?...
Long Beach Group of Sailing Clubs
On a warm and pleasant evening in February 2018 a group of men and women representing the sailing clubs from Beaumaris to Frankston were sharing the beautiful sunset, a wine and some convivial chat...
From that evening emerged a commitment to reenergise the Long Beach Group of sailing clubs, a co operative of 7 clubs including, Beaumaris YC, Parkdale YC, Mordialloc MYC, Mordialloc SC, Chelsea YC, Carrum SMBC, and Frankston YC, with the strength of 1500members, a force on the eastern shores of Port Phillip Bay.
The aim of the group is to support each clubs’ sailing events and provide an increased capacity to hold a greater range and size of sailing regattas on the Eastern side of the Bay. (like they did back in the 50's & 70's & 80's - Remember?)
The group’s first major regatta will be the Long Beach Regatta being held at Frankston YC on the 23rd March 2019. All Long Beach clubs will hold normal club racing on that day at Frankston rather than at their own clubs. A joint BBQ dinner and presentation will take place after sailing. With a likely 120 plus boats including off the beach Cats, Dinghies, Trailables and visiting boats, it’s sure to be a great event.
It is planned to hold the Long Beach Regatta each year, rotating through each club in turn.
