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.

There is so much planned for the week - there really is something for everyone. There is loads of fun to be had on-shore and off-shore.

What does that really mean? It's incredible fun for experienced sailors, novice boaters, and family alike.

About Hamilton Island: It's an amazing, beautiful island. Beautiful weather, crystal clear waters, stunning coral reefs, glorious food and wine, and the list goes on.

Beautiful Whitsunday's

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.

The Accommodation

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.

Amazing meals ....

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.

Best prize ever!

But there are many ways to join in the fun.

And while you are up there (because you don't race very day) you can enjoy the unrivalled beauty the Whitsunday Islands have to offer...

Is this the best Sunset?

And, you will more than likely see a whale (or two) ...

Whale Watching

While you are out on the water (preferably not racing) you can even climb up a 40foot mast. Exhilarating!

Views Forever

Who else has been to the Audi Hamilton Island Race Week? Or perhaps another Regatta (near or far)? I would love to hear your experiences, or see some of the spectacular snaps you took along the way...

Come on, what are you waiting for?
