Wednesday Twilight Social Yacht Racing

Occurs every week on Wednesday

Have you ever wanted to experience the thrill of yacht racing, but never knew where to start? The Whitsunday Sailing Club has the answer with their weekly twilight races.

Most Wednesdays between twenty and thirty yachts of various sizes and types take to the waters of Pioneer Bay for a casual (but serious) 'round the buoys' race - and the skippers invite you to join them.

The afternoon is open to anyone who wants to experience yacht racing up close and personal, and if you are keen you may become part of the regular crew. If you have never sailed before - don't worry, no experience is neccessary.

So how do you experience this amazing sport? Be at the club by 3:00pm on a Wednesday afternoon, and our friendly staff will assist you to find a ride on one of the boats. There is no charge for racing - just take whatever you want to drink (beers are acceptable!). Racing starts at 4:30pm and generally lasts for an hour to an hour and a half.

After the race, why not come back to the club for a few drinks and a roast buffet and be a part of the race presentations and the traditional 'rum bucket'.
