A mixture of short offshore and bay racing, beginning with the Round the Whitsundays race, has never been so much fun.

The popular XXXX Series kicks off with the Round the Whitsundays race, taking sailors from Airlie Beach around Dent, Edward and Hayman islands, providing a full circumnavigation of the Whitsunday island group.

This race is the premier event on the WSC calendar and provides the sailors with a great challenge through the day and at least part of the night and, in light winds, yachts may still be finishing in the middle of the day on Sunday.

The following weekend sees a shorter offshore race on Saturday around some of the closer islands in the Whitsunday group possibly including Armit and Double Cones.

The course will be determined on the day according to the tide and wind.

Sunday will be a large bay race around marks set in Pioneer Bay which will provide a tough test of crew work.

The results from each of these races will be tallied to find a winner in each division for the prestigious XXXX Series.

Thanks must go to Lion Nathan for their continued support of this great series.
