FANFARE (Fantastic Nepean Fall Regatta) 2024 is planned for 7-8 September. We intend to invite One Design dinghy classes + Open catamaran class, for 2 days of great sailing in good winds and warm water.
We welcome those competing in their first ever regatta. To help you understand the event better:
Saturday boats typically rig at 0900, attend the competitors meeting at 0930, leave the dock 1020.
Sunday boats typically rig at 0845, leave the dock 0920.
These times are approximate – each boat is individually responsible for getting to the race course on time.
Check in at the signal boat at the race course. Inform one of the official boats on the water if you leave the race course early.
Bring your own lunch, fluids and sunscreen. We stay on the water all day.
On Sunday afternoon, gather in the clubhouse for the awards.
There are no organized meals. The Galley is open as usual.

The Fantastic Nepean Fall Regatta – FANFARE 2022 ran 10 + 11 September, with 71 people racing in 36 boats. This is our annual Fall event for small boats. The race committee fired off 5 to 7 races for each fleet, correctly reading and accounting for a 130 degree wind-shift in the middle of both days. more…
We found a way to play safely, even during the pandemic. Not surprising, with boats far apart in fresh air! 5 fleets races, with an awesome 8 or 9 races in every fleet. Great Laser Radial turnout in particular. Check out the results here.
