2015 Airlie Yacht Race Entries Now Open

Organisers for the famous sailing yacht race are expecting a good roll up for the annual event’s 26th edition, with some well-known yachts among the early entries already received.

Open to IRC Racing and IRC Passage, One-Design, Performance Racing, Sports Boats, Cruising (spinnaker and non-spinnaker divisions), along with Multihull Racing and Multihull Passage classes, Whitsunday Sailing Club’s (WSC) ‘Tropical Shirt’ regatta is attended by race yachts from all across Australia.

Airlie Beach Race Week is supported by the Queensland government and runs from August 7 to 14, on the waters of Pioneer Bay and the Whitsunday Passage.

There will be a lay day mid-regatta, offering a great opportunity for competitors, family and friends to take advantage of the leisure activities on offer in the area.
