  • Description

    Hamilton Island Race Week is one of Australia’s favourite yachting events. Perfectly situated amongst Queensland's Whitsunday Islands, Hamilton Island offers fabulous trade wind sailing conditions in a tropical paradise.

    Sydney To Hobart

    The programme includes two days of race training and spinnaker handling around the stunning Whitsunday Islands, followed by the regatta itself.

    Race on a Beneteau 40.7

    You train and compete on board one of our Beneteau 40.7 race-tuned yachts. We always aim to do well but our number one priority is to make sure everyone on board feels involved and enjoys being part of the crew.

    Training together gives the crew the chance to familiarise themselves with the boat and to settle into roles before the regatta.

    During the training days you learn about race crew roles, spinnaker packing, hoisting, trimming, gybing, dropping and broach recovery.

    Party ashore

    The 'apres sail' activities at Hamilton Island offer something for everyone. Fine wining and dining, cheap eats, cocktail parties and great bands.

    Accommodation ashore

    We allow a limited number of crew to stay on board the yacht in the marina. If you want a little more comfort we recommend you make arrangements to stay in one of the many resorts on the island.
