Capture the spirit of winter Etchells sailing, enter today
Already thinking about your winter sailing program ? Now is the time to enter the Musto Etchells Australia Winter Championship and get organised to enjoy another sunny winter in Mooloolaba.

The Notice of Race, Entry Form and online entry process for 2009 are now available on the event website. The event dates are 4 to 7 June.

The annual Musto Etchells Australian Winter Championship this year celebrates its 13th year. Attracting entries from around Australia and overseas, the three-day event is all about brilliant Etchells racing on the stunning waters off Mooloolaba.

Mooloolaba is one of the few harbours in Australia to offer quick, easy access to the ocean. It is only a short distance to sail from the marina to the clear water competition area. The Sunshine Coast winter is full of beautiful warm sunshine. Competitors are assured of a friendly welcome in a town full of accommodation and entertainment options.

Combine these attractions with top quality sailors racing in a large fleet of one-design boats and you have what it takes to make a great event.

The 2009 event will be based out of The Wharf complex at Mooloolaba. All competing boats will be berthed at the marina during the event adding to the visual excitement the Winter Championship brings to Mooloolaba each year. Competitors are encouraged to book their accommodation at Newport Apartments, located next to the marina. Bookings can be made online at

Competitors can fly directly into the Sunshine Coast or to Brisbane. Sun Air bus services provide an hourly bus service from both airports to the centre of Mooloolaba. Bus bookings can be made online at

The Wharf Tavern will be the venue for all functions. Returning 2008 competitors will no doubt remember the fantastic prize giving party held at the Tavern last year. There will be this party and more at The Tavern at the end of racing each day.

Bring the family along with you. They will enjoy the attractions of Mooloolaba including the famous Underwater World located at The Wharf.
