Why should you come?

The Venue, Midway Point Yacht Club is situated on Pittwater, just north from the Hobart Airport, 10 Minutes drive away. Pittwater is similar in nature to Port Dalrymple. its shallow which means flat water and a choc top if you make a slow recovery, minimal tidal flow and not significantly affected by land formations from nearby hills. The sea breeze is priceless and based on the normal weather pattern should be a guaranteed guest on some of the scheduled days racing.
