The inaugural Sail Townsville event is fast approaching and is shaping up to be a focal point on the 2013 sailing calendar. The event running from 24 August until 3 September will be a culmination of SeaLink Magnetic Island Race Week, ‘Townsville Alive’ a mainland Community, Arts and Entertainment Festival and a Yachting Queensland Multi-Class Regatta.

Yachting Queensland has worked hard to be able to run championship events, securing five events as well as a Discover Sailing Week. The Townsville Sailing Club in conjunction with Yachting Queensland invites all sailors to attend the event that will be conducted on the pristine waters of Cleveland Bay. The regatta is open to all ‘off the beach’ classes and includes the Queensland F18 State Championships, Queensland Taser State Championships, Kite Townsville Championships, Sail Townsville Open Dinghy Regatta and the North Queensland Youth Championships. Further, the Discover Sailing Week will give over 500 primary school children the opportunity to experience how safe and fun sailing is.

The Notice of Race for these events is now available online. Please visit the Yachting Queensland website to view the Notice of Race and event information and registration. Sail Townsville will provide a massive boost for sailing and is certainly an event not to be missed!
