A Townsville first is going to happen this weekend.
From Friday arvo the inaugural GaLS (Girls and Ladies in Sailing Regatta) will official kick off at the Townsville Yacht Club.
This event has attracted yachts from across the country to participate in our tropical waters.
There will be yachts from as far as Melbourne competing against local and Port Douglas yachts.
Girl power will be on show across the event with all crews being female dominant, with only one male allowed on board.
Racing officially starts Saturday morning with Short Course Sprint Races followed by Fixed Mark Races on Sunday.
Organisers hope this Townsville first will be back for many years to come.
See full details about the weekend on their Facebook page.
Best of luck to all competitors!
