Audi Hamilton Island Race Week
Spectators and yachties from around the globe sail to Hamilton Island in August for Audi Hamilton Island Race Week, Australia's largest annual offshore keelboat regatta.
Race Week is one of Australia's favourite yachting events and a firm fixture on the international sailing calendar. Competitors, family and friends come together to enjoy the convivial atmosphere and unique camaraderie of the event's on and off-water carnival.
Racing is split into various categories, from Grand Prix class for top-class racers, to IRC Passage class, performance racing and sports boat classes. More recently, the introduction of a Superyacht division has added yet another dynamic to the event.
