The third annual Seawind Whitsunday Rally will soon set sail from Shute Harbour on Saturday June 20 for a week of racing and partying around the Whitsunday Islands onboard 14 Seawind catamarans.

Approximately 60 crew members will join the fun filled week of social racing and activities, flying in from all around Australia and overseas. The rally will have the fleet race from island to island with a party or event at each of the seven destinations, including Shute Harbour, Long Island, Shaw Island, Hamilton Island, Whitehaven Beach, Butterfly Bay and South Molle Island.

The rally is part of a year long series of regattas and cruising safaris around Australia (including Sydney, Jervis Bay, Moreton Bay, Mandurah WA) and the Americas (including Catalina Island - California, Mexico and the Bahamas) with approximately 100 Seawind catamarans and 500 crew members participating throughout the year.

The Seawind range is available for charter from operators located at Abel Point Marina such as event sponsors Whitsunday Private Yacht Charters or Whitsunday Rent A Yacht from Shute Harbour. The general public are encouraged to charter a Seawind to participate in the rally, with the event now running every 12 months.

Daily updates from the committee boat will be made on Twitter (search: seawindcats), Face Book (search: Seawind Catamarans) and Flickr (Search: Seawind Catamarans) including photos and place winners.

Seawind Catamarans are Australia’s largest manufacturer of catamarans with approximately 100 people employed at their two plants located in Wollongong and Nowra, on the South Coast of NSW. The 35ft Seawind 1000XL is Australia’s most popular cruising catamaran and the 38ft Seawind 1160 has won many design awards both in Australia and the USA.

Note: A camera boat will be available for the start of Race 1 from Shute Harbour on Saturday 20 at approximately 11am – BOOKING ESSENTIAL.
