Airlie Beach Race Week - Airlie Beach (all weekend)

Airlie Beach Race Week was first held 28 years ago. Originally conceived to promote the opening of the very first Hog's Breath Cafe in Australia it has grown from humble beginnings to a major event on Australia's sailing calendar. Don Algie, had arrived in the Whitsundays aboard his classic 55' sloop Storm in 1987 looking for a site to start his brainchild Hog's Breath Cafe after spending four years in Florida. By 2000, the regatta attracted over 70 entries and grew to over 100 entries in following years. In 2003 there was a shift towards professional event management, and the Race Week came together with the help of a huge band of volunteers from Whitsunday Sailing Club. Last year saw a record fleet of 132 boats competing. Both on water and on shore activities give competitors, friends and family lots of fun to share and enjoy. This year's Race Week is set to be a cracker! See you there!
