81st Sharpie Nationals – Keppel Bay Sailing Club


QLD Sharpies are pumped to be welcoming you to the 81st Australian Sharpie Nationals at KBSC in Yeppoon. Hot off the press from a great carnival in Victoria, QLD Sharpies are cooking up what is set to be a fantastic week on and off the water for the Sharpie fraternity.

With a brand-new clubhouse currently under construction set to be finished mid 2024 we have the opportunity to be adding to the already rich Sharpie history at Keppel Bay Sailing Club by being the first national titles to be held in the new clubhouse! So pencil in the dates, book your accommodation and come be a part of QLD Sharpie history.

Entries will be open soon, so keep your eyes peeled across social media for all the exciting updates around the social schedule as we draw closer to our favourite time of year!
