Fleurieu Classic aka Christies to Hobart

Fleurieu Classic Yacht Race aka Christies to Hobart

2nd & 3rd March 2024

Action, Adrenaline and Adventure

Get your sails in order and grab your crew to be part of this epic two-day adventure from Christies Sailing Club down the southern coastline to Wirrina and back.

Hosted by Christies Sailing Club, the Fleurieu Classic route has been chosen for its scenic beauty, taking in some of the most beautiful coastline on the planet. How lucky are we! This event is open to all sailors with trailable and keel yachts. With two racing divisions, you can enjoy all the fun and thrills of the race with or without a spinnaker.

To ensure maximum fun, we’ve arranged a bunch of support for you including dinner on Saturday night, breakfast and lunch on Sunday, and transport via bus of all your goodies, along with a few options for your overnight stay in Wirinna - because no great race is complete without a good social event.
