Sailing

The 2014 Vision Surveys QLD Airlie Race Week is the premier sailing event of the year for Whitsunday Sailing Club. Racing around the islands of the Whitsunday Passage or around the bouys in Pioneer Bay, the weather is great and the scenery spectacular.

With the water temperature around 28 degrees, daytime temperature averaging 29 degrees, Airlie Beach is the place to be. There are racing divisions to suit all yachts from IRC for the sailing heavyweights to Cruising for those who prefer a less serious race, we cater for all.

Marina berthing is available at Abell Point Marina and Port of Airlie and if you let them know that you are here for race week, they will try to put race boats together and offer a 25% discount. Get in quick to get the best spots.

There is also plenty for the family here in Airlie Beach. A great lagoon on the foreshore, resorts to visit, day trips around the islands, beaches and snorkeling.

In the evenings check the social calendar for race week official events or roam around and choose from a large range of restaurants and eateries around the town.
