The Australia Day Regatta
Christine Cheater, Jennifer Debenham
February 2014
The Australia Day Regatta has been held on Sydney Harbour every year since 1837. Believed to be the oldest continuously held annual regatta in the world, it has grown and flourished and today involves close to 700 vessels − from ocean-going yachts to small sailing dinghies − and thousands of participants.
