Whitsunday Sailing Club holds twilight races on most Wednesday afternoons during the year.

The start is at 1630hrs and all members and visiting yachts are welcome to join in. Entry is $15 per race and entry forms are available at club reception. 

If you are new to Airlie Beach, and would like to join us, learn to sail and meet new people, our boats often have room on board for you to join in. You can register on our website, and boat owners may offer you a spot on board if they are short of crew. Put your name down  here.

The Races are generally around a triangle course, with the Multihulls (Div 1) and faster Monohulls (Div 2) sailing three laps then sailing a beat to the finish just beyond the top mark. Smaller or slower monos sail two laps then finish to windward.

During this year, there may be changes to the course sailed, plenty of notice will be given.

For Off-Beach boats there is an informal but competitive race training session. All classes are welcome to join in however the fleet is  predominantly Lasers. It all happens right in front of the club and the ultra short course racing is great to watch from the Balcony. For those who would like to take part just head down to the grass at 1345hrs and say hello to the friendly group of sailors. They would love to introduce you to off beach racing and help you to start racing on one of the clubs lasers.

After the race, why not come back to the club for a few drinks and a Dinner Buffet and be a part of the race presentations. Prizes are given for 1st, 2nd and 3rd in each division as well as a few extra awards.
