"Be part of our Charity Yachting Regatta Ė an important industry event. Letís get together as an industry to build safe homes for homeless young people. Join our commitment to make a positive and life-changing impact."

Bob Johnston
National Chair

Property Industry Foundation

Donít miss out on this premier industry event on Sydney Harbour. Join colleagues from across the property sector to raise vital funds for at-risk and homeless young people.

Thereís no better cause that to raise funds for at-risk and homeless young people. The Charity Yachting Regatta will raise funds for our PIF House Program which builds homes and provides vital support for young people without a secure place to live or the life skills to be independent.

Our successful Regatta Youth Sailing Program returns in 2018 to provide a learning experience to build the confidence of at-risk and homeless young people. The program will be offered through the CYCA Youth Sailing Academy.
