Whitsunday Sailing Club holds twilight races on most Wednesday afternoons during the year.
The start is at 1630hrs and all members and visiting yachts are welcome to join in. Entry is $15 per race and entry forms are available at club reception. Members can enter by SMS once they have completed an Online Registration Form.
If you are new to Airlie Beach, and would like to join us, learn to sail and meet new people, our boats often have room on board for you to join in. Register your interest for boat owners to offer you a spot on board.
The Races are generally around a triangle course, with the Multihulls (Div 1) and faster Monohulls (Div 2) sailing three laps then sailing a beat to the finish just beyond the top mark. Smaller or slower Monohulls sail two laps then finish to windward.
Prior notice will be given of any changes to the usual courses.
Off beach boats enjoy an informal yet competitive race training session. The fleet consists predominantly of Lasers and all classes are welcome. It all happens right in front of the club and the ultra short course racing is great to watch from the Balcony. To take part head down to the grass at 1345hrs and say hello to the friendly group of sailors. They would love to introduce you to off beach racing and to help you start racing on one of the clubs lasers.
After the race, why not come back to the clubhouse for a few drinks and a carvery and be a part of the race presentations. Prizes are given for 1st, 2nd and 3rd in each division as well as a few extra awards.
