See some of worlds best sailors in action and get up close and personal to the sport of yacht racing... you do not need to be a skilled sailor or a millionaire, although many millions have been invested in the fleet of yachts which compete in this, Australia's premier race week. 

After Racing, in the afternoon the yachts return to Hamilton Island Marina for the overnight stay.  On the Island it is a festive atmosphere and there are many choices for dining, entertainment and socialising. Whether you buy a single ticket, or come with a few friends, you will meet new people and bond into a sailing crew as the sport of yacht racing creates great team bonds.
