The 2024 Nautilus Marine Insurance Sydney Harbour Regatta, staged by Middle Harbour Yacht Club, is gearing up for its 19th year.

First sailed in 2006, this regatta is one of the largest competitive keelboat regattas in Australia, and this year, will see around 190 keelboats racing across 19 divisions in seven course areas in Sydney Harbour, as well as outside Sydney Heads.

In 2024, Classic Yachts will be added, with two races on the Saturday and one longer race on the Sunday. The Nautilus Marine Insurance Sydney Harbour Regatta sees great camaraderie, not just at the Club after the racing, but also in the organising, with all the major clubs assisting Middle Harbour Yacht Club to run the event. Racing action will take place over the weekend of 2-3 March, with the presentation evening on Monday March 4.
