History of Sail Airlie

​Since becoming an annual event in 2009, the Whitsunday Sailing Club Easter Off the Beach regatta has become an important date in the calendar for many sailors across Queensland, with some coming all the way from Brisbane to complete.

Sail Airlie 2018

Once again , the Whitsunday Sailing Club will conduct the annual Sail Airlie regatta over the Easter period, 30 March - 2 April 2018.  Last year, Airlie Beach and the Whitsunday Sailing Club was host to over 300 visiting competitors and supporters for the 2017 Sail Airlie regatta.  With over 70 boats competing in six divisions, the event attracted entrants from Tinnaroo and Mission Beach down to Brisbane.  Competition over 3 course areas ranged from the high performance 29’er, through to Lasers and down to a tackers fleet, with competitors ranging from as young as 7 years of age ranging up to competitors in their 60’s.

Other classes which competed in the event included Tasar, Flying 11, Nacra F18, A Class, 125, Optimist.

With the opportunity to camp at the venue, competitors agreed that this was the Best ever Sail Airlie Regatta.  Planning is already underway for Easter 2018, this year incorporating the Arrow Queensland State Championship, the North Queensland Laser Championship, Sabot traveller Series as well as the Marlin Marine offshore keelboat regatta.

The regatta is open to all classes of Off the Beach racing dinghies and catamarans, and also incorporates the North Queensland Laser Championship and the North Queensland Sabot travelling series.  Other classes may be split into divisions, with results calculated by class yardstick, subject to entries.

Up to 7 races are scheduled for each division, with an invitation race on Friday, followed by racing on Saturday and Sunday.
