Have you ever wanted to experience the thrill of yacht racing, but never knew where to start? The Whitsunday Sailing Club has the answer with their weekly twilight races.

Put your name down to find a boat.

Every Wednesday between twenty and thirty yachts of various sizes and types take to the waters of Pioneer Bay for a casual (but serious) 'round the buoys' race - and the skippers invite you to join them.

The afternoon is open to anyone who wants to experience yacht racing up close and personal, and if you are keen you may become part of the regular crew. If you have never sailed before - don't worry, no experience is neccessary.

So how do you experience this amazing sport? Write your name on the notice board as early as possible and let others know you are interested. There is no charge for racing - just take whatever you want to drink (beers are acceptable!). Racing starts at 4:30pm and generally lasts for an hour to an hour and a half.

After the race, why not come back to the club for a few drinks and a roast buffet and be a part of the race presentations and the traditional 'rum bucket'.

Need crew?


We are 3 English travellers, 18, and are travelling up the East Coast at the moment. Two of us are very keen sailors, I am a dinghy instructor, have my ICC for yachts and have many weeks experience on yachts and dinghies. We are therefore reluctant to go on a 'tour package' sailing trip around the whitsundays knowing how much better doing it yourself is. Unfortunately our budget doesn't stretch to chartering but if anyone wants to go for a sail and is short a crew or 2 or 3 it would be great to join you for racing or just cruising with a beer. We should be in the are in the 2nd or 3rd week of May so email me at
