NSW Sharpies invites you all to the 78th Australian Sharpie Nationals to be held on Lake Burley Griffin, Canberra, hosted by the YMCA Sailing Club from 28 December 2021 to 3 January 2022.

As many of you would be aware these championships were rescheduled from last year due to the COVID-19 situation and we wanted to assure all competitors that both the YMCA SC and NSW Sharpies are progressing on the basis that we will be able to hold this event at the end of the year.
While we are hopeful that we can host the event, there may be some limitations and/or restrictions could occur even with the increasing vaccination rate of much of the Australian population, however the organisers are considering these and some may include the following:
- At this stage, the event will proceed as planned. There may be some restrictions placed on the event by the ACT or Federal Government closer to the time, and we will have to comply with those directions.
- We have determined that we need a minimum of 27 boats to host a financially successful championship, and we are well on the way to achieving this with 17 entries to date. Please remember that you have the ability to enter now and pay later, so we would encourage those who are interested in attending to get your entry in sooner than later.
- The Organising Committee is very keen to be able to host the event this year, but all potential entrants need to be aware of the limitations that may impact the ability to host the event during a global pandemic.
