This year, the 2024 Sydney Charity Regatta is commemorating a remarkable achievement – 25 years of sailing for homeless youth.

Join us at the Sydney Charity Regatta on 15 March – celebrating a quarter century of fundraising at sea with an exclusive pre-race cocktail lunch at the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia (CYCA). “Everyone who is anyone in our industry has been to the Sydney Charity Regatta,” says Property Industry Foundation CEO Kate Mills. “It’s our industry’s premier event and this year we are doing things a little differently and celebrating its 25th year by inviting all our supporters to join us at a pre-race lunch.”

Connect with industry peers, celebrate the regatta’s special milestone, and be part of a thought-provoking panel discussion hosted by Malcom Tyson, CEO of Colliers, featuring Greg Paramor, Walter Carpenter, and CYCA Commodore, Arthur Lane. Each will share their memorable moments of the Sydney Charity Regatta over the last 25 years. “A light pre-race lunch will enable extra networking and give us time to recognise those that have gone above and beyond to help us achieve our mission,” says Kate. “We are honoured to have Rosemary Smithson, former CEO of the Foundation join us for this momentous occasion. We will be reflecting on and celebrating our past, but also looking to our future and hearing from a young person with lived experience of homelessness about the impact we are having.”

From ambitious beginnings, Sydney’s Charity Regatta has grown to over 50 boats and 700+ attendees. Last year, we raised $300,000 for homeless youth. “Much of what we do as a collaborative, industry-wide initiative began at the Regatta 25 years ago when a group of property leaders connected out on Sydney’s beautiful harbour with a great cause in a meaningful and ongoing way,” says Kate. “Over time, we have built an incredible project of collective impact. Thanks to your support, together we now deliver 86,870 nights of safety for vulnerable youth each year, thanks to the 238 bedrooms we have built. That number increases as we build more homes for homeless youth and each bedroom has a ripple effect across our communities.”

Connect with industry peers and discover the incredible impact of your support on young people experiencing homelessness at the Sydney Charity Regatta, featuring an exclusive 25-year cocktail lunch from 12 pm to 1.30 pm, before the official regatta race.
