NCYC also runs a number of offshore distance races as well as the Inner Spring Regatta, the Friendship Cup and the HMRI Cup and has also recently established the NCYC Sailing Academy.
With an ongoing objective of developing and promoting the sport of sailing in Newcastle, NCYC is focused on maintaining its welcoming approach and hospitable charm to both “old salts” and those new to sailing .
