18th & 19th March 2017


Over thirty years ago, a couple of small boat sailors decided to test themselves around a tight, winding course from Clayton Bay through Dunn’s Lagoon, around the Rat Island, and back to Clayton Bay. Since those days, the Clayton Bay Boat Club has continued the tradition of racing around Rat Island with the Rat Race Regatta. 


All sailing boats are welcome to enter, and spectators can be sure of an interesting day with meals and a licensed bar on Saturday evening and again on Sunday.


The events consist of 2 races of approximately 2-3 hours each, spread over the two days with lots of socialising and fun in between.

On Saturday, the 18th of March a sausage sizzle will be held from midday onwards, with a briefing for the first race starting at 2pm. Following the race, a two-course meal will be available for Saturday evening dinner 


On Sunday, the 19th of March the briefing for the second race of the Regatta starts at 10am and will be followed by a catered lunch, after which the Regatta results will be announced.

I’m sure you’ll agree that there is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.


Entries and food orders must be received by Wednesday March 15th.
