Skippers who enter their boats in the Festival of Sails before midnight Saturday, November 30 will go into the draw to win a $5000 Thailand Sunsail yacht charter.

The winner of the early-bird competition will be drawn on Monday, 27 January 2020 at the Royal Geelong Yacht Club presentations and will receive a Sunsail Thailand bareboat yacht charter experience in Phuket, Thailand.

Hosted by the Royal Geelong Yacht Club, Geelong's historic Festival of Sails will celebrate its 177th anniversary this summer with the three-day regatta running from January 25 to 27, 2020.

Festival of Sails Chairman Stuart Dickson said the Sunsail charter could accommodate up to eight people and was an "amazing prize which provided sailors with the opportunity to discover one of the world's best cruising destinations".

"It is a fantastic incentive to get in early and sign up. All Festival of Sails entrants get free berthing when they enter and all crew members receive entry to Regatta Village and access to live entertainment, which is always a highlight," he said.

The 2020 Festival of Sails will run from the Royal Geelong Yacht Club and the Geelong Waterfront with a mixture of world class sailing, live entertainment and a strong focus on on-shore activities for the whole family.

The Geelong major event is expected to attract in excess of 3000 sailors and support crew from around Australia and overseas.
