Club Marine Pittwater Sail Expo 2014 - Together with Club Marine, the Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club situated on Sydney’s northern beaches will host the third annual Club Marine Pittwater Sail Expo over the weekend of 22 and 23 March, featuring over 40 exhibitors supplying goods and services to the professional and leisure sailor as well as showcasing the club and its various activities.

By simply visiting the Club Marine Pittwater Sail Expo in March, you will have the opportunity to win a Mariner Boating Holiday valued at $15,000.


Mariner Boating Holidays are the major promotional partner alongside major sponsor Club Marine for the Pittwater Sail Expo and in 2014 will once again have a major presence at the Expo.

To win this fabulous prize, all you have to do is visit the Mariner Boating stand at Sail Expo, register your details and complete a short online survey. Trevor says his team is keen to find out what destinations are at the top of your list, so the favourite destination among Expo visitors will be the location for the prize.

Managing Director Trevor Joyce said, 'Sail Expo brings a highly qualified audience of sailors and people interested in sailing holidays to the Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club – the home of sailing on the peninsula. We had a great position inside the yacht club last year and we knew straight away that people were interested in what we had to say'.

The 2014 Mariner Boating’s Rally program kicks off in April in Tahiti and closes in October in Turkey. The team will be available during Sail Expo to answer any questions you have, so drop in to discuss your next boating holiday!
Held in and around the clubhouse and on the magnificent floating marina, the Club Marine Pittwater Sail expo will feature an extensive array of exhibitors with many leading marine industry brands represented. There will be a large range of sailing boats on display so come down and inspect the latest range of production, cruising and racing yachts and mulithulls.

Other marine goods and services will be exhibiting in marquees on the lawn including inflatable boats, sailing apparel, yacht brokerage and services, marine paints, sail makers and cleaners, riggers, bags and accessories, electrical, batteries, upholstery, marine insurance and much, much more.

It’s an outstanding opportunity for visitors to witness the club first hand and gather information about training, racing, cruising, kids programs and membership and gain professional advice directly from industry experts.
