Whitsunday Sailing Club is planning to continue with Sail Airlie 2017, the Easter regatta for Off the Beach dinghies, despite the damage to the club received during Ex-Cyclone Debbie.  

While some of the infrastructure on shore will not be in pristine condition, the on water races will proceed as planned, while the regatta will work around the restrictions caused by the damage.  

Camping will still be available, as will access to toilet blocks, the club's bar and bistro (closed on Good Friday, but otherwise open as normal), although the menu may be limited.  The club is expecting to get power restored by Sunday 9 April, with clean up activities ongoing up until the regatta.

We are hopeful that competitors will come along and support the regatta and the club during this difficult time.
