Important Announcements for the 58th Australian National Cherub Championships 2022/23
Attention Australian Cherub Sailors and Supporters,

The Cherub National Council of Australia is proud to announce that the 58th Australian National Championships will be hosted at Wangi RSL Amateur Sailing Club from the 27th of December 2022 to the 4th of January 2023.

After two years of border closures and regatta cancellations, we think it is fair to say that we are all well overdue to come together again. So, save the date, hustle your crews, and dust off your wetsuits – we can’t wait to see you there!

Please keep your eyes peeled for updates as we will be releasing our Notice of Race in the coming days and weeks (we have good intel that it contains a special surprise).

As always, if you are a skipper/crew without a boat, or have a boat and are in need of a skipper/crew, please don’t hesitate to let us know at We will endeavor to lend a hand and get you sailing.

Only a 1.5 hour drive north of Sydney, and 45 minutes southwest of Newcastle, Wangi RSL Amateur Sailing Club is based on the western shore of Lake Macquarie.
This club resides in the lakeside hamlet of Wangi Wangi, and is surrounded by an array of local businesses, hospitality venues and short-term stay accommodation. Competitors will be treated to the fast, flat-water racing for which this area is prized in the sailing community.

Wangi RSL Amateur Sailing Club has a proud tradition of hosting competitive sailing regattas. Most recently, the club hosted the 2021 Moth Class Nationals to great success. The Cherub National Council of Australia looks forward to working closely with Wangi RSL Amateur Sailing Club’s resident volunteers throughout the course of this event.


Wangi Wangi is a popular New South Welsh holiday location and has an array of short-term holiday accommodation available. Get in quick to avoid missing out!
