Giant Steps Autism Regatta

Friday 30th October 2020

Register in this year’s Giant Steps Autism Sailing Regatta on Friday October 30th, 2020 and help a child with autism.  Donated yachts are needed to ensure Giant Steps Sydney, a charity for children with autism, does not have to spend precious funds chartering yachts for their annual sailing regatta fundraiser. 

The Giant Steps Autism Sailing Regatta will be held at Middle Harbour Yacht Club and has become an annual event that provides companies with the perfect opportunity to 'team build' and network on Sydney Harbour in support of children with autism.

This year we are expecting 30 companies to sign up for this non spinnaker race and a number of yachts ranging from 34' to 60' have already been pledged. However, more boats are needed to ensure organisers do not have to turn groups away or divert funds from the charity to charter yachts. 

Participation in the event sees competitors boarding a yacht with a skipper, enjoying a picnic lunch and participating in this social race on Sydney Harbour. There are no entry fees for donated yachts and skippers are invited to join in post race drinks and a barbeque dinner on the foreshore of the Middle Harbour Yacht Club free of charge. 

This is a wonderful opportunity for yacht owners enjoy a Friday afternoon sail on Sydney Harbour and make a difference to children with autism.
