Sail Mooloolaba 2013 is being held from 22-30 June. Local accommodation venues are offering great deals for sailors visiting Mooloolaba during this year’s week-long celebration of sailing.
On offer is accommodation from caravan parks through to five-star, serviced apartments, many with stunning views of the race areas off Mooloolaba Beach.
Sailors can base themselves in one of the many serviced apartment building in Mooloolaba or enjoy the equally good accommodation places in Maroochydore and Alex Headland which are only a few minutes drive north of Mooloolaba.
But there is one catch. Since the regatta is being held during school holidays, it will be those sailors who book now who will secure the discounts on offer; leave it until the last minute and you will likely have to pay the full price.
This year's Sail Mooloolaba starts off on the weekend of 22-23 June with the Sports Boats and Trailable Yachts Winter Nationals, and the Monohull and Multihull regatta. Then the Radio Controlled Yachts have their chance to shine on the Mooloolah River in front of The Wharf on the Tuesday. There is a Fun open water race on the Wednesday afternoon. The racing heats up again on Thursday and Friday with the Schools Invitational Match Racing on the Mooloolah River. The final event, on the weekend of 29 and 30 June, is the Open Dinghy regatta on the open waters of Mooloolaba Bay.
In between the racing there will be plenty of on-shore fun for all ages so families and friends are encouraged to come along.
