The Etchells Australian Winter Championship will be conducted off Mooloolaba from 5-8 June 2014. The annual Championship attracts the best Australian & New Zealand one-design class sailors to compete in seven race series. Previous winners of the series include America's Cup, Olympic class, Sydney-Hobart race winners & class World Champions.
The sailors enjoy travelling to Queensland to compete in the warm June winds blowing off Mooloolaba. The sailors usually encounter not only high-quality competition but also challenging sailing conditions. The Mooloolaba Yacht Club venue is well set up to host the Etchells fleet with good facilities, great hospitality & immediate access to the competition waters.
Mooloolaba accommodation for the sailors & their families ranges from camping to four-star+ self-contained units & luxury apartments, all located only a few minutes walk from the Yacht Club.

The Etchells Australasian Winter Championship 2014 kicks off with racing for a fleet of 33 boats, a host of talented sailors chasing the 18th Winters title and a healthy handful of new skippers.

Missing from this years event are 16 teams that have chosen to compete in the Etchells World Championship in Newport, Rhode Island. The other two Australian teams skippered by Mark Bradford and Paul Garaty, are using the Mooloolaba event as their pre-Worlds training event.

Joining the event are eight new skippers, several with crews that have competed in Mooloolaba and others are also new to the Winter Championship.

The new skippers are Geelong - Darren Mahoney and Nick Gunner, Lake Macquarie - Greg Torpy, Pittwater - Jill Connell, Southport - Grant Allen, Sydney - Mike Thackray, Cronulla - David Baldwin and Brisbane - Alistair Cowen.

Of this group, Torpy is the most familiar with the Mooloolaba race track. He lived and sailed on the Sunshine Coast for several years before moving back to New South Wales. He was also a member of Peter McNeil’s team which won the 2004 Etchells World Championship, held off Mooloolaba.

NOTE: The event is often described by Australia's top sailors as probably the most competitive regatta on the Australian yachting calendar at this time of year. Often competitors bring their partners with them to the event who enjoy the holiday weekend participating in social, tourism & shopping experiences during the event .
