The SA Sharpies team is planning something massive for the 76th Sharpie Nationals at the end of 2018, and it has been dubbed ‘The Gulf War’, the biggest war on water seen in some time. A fleet of about 80 Sharpies will take to the Gulf St Vincent waters to compete for the title, hosted by the Adelaide Sailing Club.

This event is expected to be the largest Sharpie nationals in nearly 20 years, with the strongest national fleet since the 99-boat fleet of the 2000/01 series at the Port Lincoln Yacht Club.

Nominations are now open, and you are able to NOMINATE NOW & PAY LATER. So follow the link below and register your attendance right away – it will only make the series bigger and more appealing.

The Notice of Race is also available for more detailed information about the event. If you require more information, get in contact with the SA Sharpies committee.
