What's on this week: 11 August 2020

Dear reader,

JUST ANNOUNCED - South of Perth Yacht Club's 75th Anniversary Regatta is 4-14 January 2021

As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, WA will miss out on many major national regattas this summer, one of which is the Australian Youth Championships. Despite these challenges, SoPYC will conduct a 10-day action-packed regatta and beach-side activities as part of our 75th anniversary celebrations.

Stay up to date via our website and social media for further information on the plans for the 75th Anniversary Regatta.
