Mercedes-Benz Brighton Port Phillip Challenge


Hi Everyone,

On behalf of Mercedes-Benz Brighton and the Sandringham Yacht Club, it is with a lot of regret that due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) we have made the decision to postpone the 2020 Mercedes-Benz Brighton Port Phillip Challenge.

The event was scheduled to be held next Friday 20 March at Sandringham Yacht Club. The new provisional date we are aiming for will be a date in October/November 2020.

Like you we have been closely monitoring the situation and following discussions with our event partners, and considering the health and wellbeing of all involved including our corporates, our generous boat owners and their crew, our volunteer race management, our lunch guests and our 30 plus staff involved in delivering the day, we hope you understand and agree with this decision to put your safety first.

We were indeed looking forward to going sailing and entertaining you. We hope to keep all of you involved as we have received all of the team banners, event branding and exclusive Gant merchandise  …. so when things hopefully return to normal in the future, we can stage this event on a new date later in 2020.

For the corporates can you please pass this email onto your guests and likewise, skippers please pass onto your crew.

Thanks for your understanding and stay safe.
