Vision Surveys Airlie Beach Race Week participants can expect sailing and socialising at its best for the 25th anniversary event.

The social highlight of the regatta will be a special 25th birthday party on the evening before lay day.

This is the message from Whitsunday Sailing Club, which is planning many exciting festivities to ensure the silver anniversary will be a standout event in the regatta’s history.

The special birthday party, to be held on Monday, August 11 will have great music all night as well as exciting dining options at Whitsunday Sailing Club.

With the 25th anniversary described as a ‘high school reunion’ for the sailors, Whitsunday Sailing Club hopes everyone joins in the fun while reminiscing on the regatta’s special history.

Vision Surveys Airlie Beach Race Week Event Chairman Jim Hayes said with all festivities and presentations held at the Whitsunday Sailing Club this year, participants can relax and enjoy the social atmosphere at the host club.



'All of the parties and presentations will kick off at the sailing club after racing each day,' Mr Hayes said, 'so we hope everyone joins us at the club to socialise, swap stories with their mates and just enjoy the great atmosphere of race week'.

The club’s famous Great Whitsunday Fun Race will again be held the day after race week, with all sailors encouraged to have fun on the water after six days of serious racing.

'This is the day where everyone can relax on the water in any type of boat. We encourage everyone to dress up and decorate their vessel for a fun day of boating in the Whitsundays,' Mr Hayes said.

The public are welcome to attend all race week and fun race events.

Vision Surveys Airlie Beach Race Week will kick off with the welcome night on Friday, August 8 and will conclude on Friday, August 15 with the final presentations of divisional winners.
