Palm Beach Sailing Club


Beware the Bullets…

For a long, long time, Palm Beach Sailing Club has been a strong Hobie Club that has produced some of the greatest Hobie Sailors Australia has seen.

So, the NSWHCA thought we’d support our mates at Palm Beach, and join in on their annual ‘Beware the Bullets Regatta’.

The Bullets Regatta has been an iconic regatta for many catamaran classes over the years, and a regular stop off for many Traveller’s Series. Therefore, it’s the perfect opportunity to hold the NSW Hobie 16, 14-Turbo, Tiger & Wildcat State Championships on Pittwater.

The last time we were in Palm Beach was 2020, which saw 13 x Hobie 14s, 10 x Hobie 16s, 8 x Hobie 18s and 4 x Tigers & Wildcats. Additionally, in 2018, we saw 17 x Hobie 16s, 8 x Hobie 14s, 6 x Hobie 18s and 5 x Hobie Tigers & Wildcats turn up for the Hobie 14, Women & Youth State Championships.

Running hot off the Hobie 16 World Championships in Spain, and straight into the 50th Hobie Cat Nationals in Jervis Bay, this will be an awesome opportunity to get some quality time on the water in time in one of the most spectacular Hobie sailing destinations in NSW.
