Who will be entry 100 for Hamo Race Week?
IN AN unprecedented display of support, entries are booming for the 2015 Audi Hamilton Island Race Week from August 15 to 22 and the 100th entry is expected to be lodged this week.
Island CEO, Glenn Bourke, said the organisers’ aim was to create a tropical island regatta on every sailor’s bucket list, with everything from the best possible tradewind sailing to post-race dockside parties, free sausage sizzles and spectacular gala events. “We also cater for the full spectrum of offshore sailboats, from the smallest cruising yachts through to cruising and racing multihulls and Grand Prix level offshore racing yachts. It’s a regatta designed to please everyone: the sailors, their families and friends,” he said.
Mr Bourke said Race Week 2015 was also honoured to be hosting the IRC Australian Championship. He also noted the strong support from multihulls, which are likely to represent more than 15 per cent of the race week fleet.
While an impressive 23 entries have been lodged for the IRC Australian Championship, it is the cruising yachts that continue to dominate en- tries. There are near 60 cruising monohulls listed to date and 12 cruising multihulls.
