Off-beach series resumes Sunday
AFTER an extended break for Airlie Beach and Hamilton Island Race Weeks, the Whitsunday Sailing Club off-beach racing resumes this Sunday with two races, with the first race starting at 2.30pm.
The races are the fifth and sixth of the winter series and Whitsunday Sailing Club sailing development officer Tim Parker said the club is hoping to have as many off-beach boats as possible.
“If you have an old laser or hobie in the backyard gathering dust and leaves, drag it out and join in the racing,” he said.
To take part in the event, please register at the sailing club’s registration desk.
