Happy hump day sailors,

If you were hoping to enter your yacht in the 2021 Hamilton Island Race Week and haven’t yet put in your entry, you’re likely too late. The organisers have now closed online entries and have set-up a waitlist for those who missed out.

With many regattas cancelled in 2020 and most international travel from Australia still unavailable, Queensland’s winter regattas are proving more popular than ever. All 80 berths for the 2021 SeaLink Magnetic Island Race Week were also filled within days of the regatta entry opening in March.

Enjoy reading the latest sailing news and stories.

Until next week, happy sailing 😊⛵
