Catalpa Classic

The Catalpa Classic is held annually early in the summer sailing season and commemorates the escape of six Fenians from Fremantle Gaol and the shores of Rockingham in 1876.
Yachts from TCYC representing the escapees start first in the race to Fremantle.  They are then pursued by the Fremantle boats starting later and representing the West Australian authorities.

The race is conducted on a handicap basis.  Due to the size of the magnificent trophy, it is held at TCYC for all members and visitors to admire.
