16 - 23 August 2014 Hamilton Island - situated on the edge of the Great Barrier Reef [A-M-A-Z--I-N-G]
About the famous regatta The Audi Hamilton Island Race Week is a key Australian yachting event. Competitors (of all skill level), family and friends join in this unique atmosphere and strong camaraderie of the event's on-water and off-water carnival. This is the week where Hamilton Island comes alive.
We decided to do our 'Hamo' experience with the lovely Cath and Brian 'Pozz' from Sailing Adventures. And what an adventure it was!
They combine an 'Executive Development' Program with the fun of the Sailing Regatta to make this a truly unique experience.
This fully-inclusive event is aimed at like minded people (CEO's, Professionals etc) who all enjoy a good time on the water. They include all meals (prepared by your own chefs), beer and wine, luxury accommodation, yachts, and lots more.
When we went, we had both very limited experience with sailing, but the guys at Sailing Adventures have experienced coaches on board each yacht to make it a great event for all levels. And, you don't have to sail every day either. Perhaps you would rather stay in the luxury accommodation, eat their gourmet food, have a glass of wine, and do some sightseeing or shopping. The choices are endless!
And this year, they have a competition to win two places to this prestige event (I am secretly hoping that I win!) - Thanks to Sailing Adventures and Nautica for this amazing prize.
