History of Sail Airlie

​Since becoming an annual event in 2009, the Whitsunday Sailing Club Easter Off the Beach regatta has become an important date in the calendar for many sailors across Queensland, with some coming all the way from Brisbane to complete.

Last year the regatta was restricted by major construction works  while the club was expanding to incorporate new Whitsunday Maritime Training Centre building.  that work is now complete, and is a real addition to the club.  So come on down, bring the family, bring the boat, and most importantly, come to enjoy great fellowship ashore and competition on the water.
