Record’s In Sight For Airlie Beach Race Week

By Mark Beale

A highly anticipated entertainment line up and unprecedented early entry numbers have the Airlie Beach Race well on track for a record breaking year.

So far, 84 entries have already been received for this year’s Festival of Sailing thanks to strong interest from competitors early on.

Race director Denis Thompson said this year was the highest number of early entries achieved so far in advance.

“With 36 days to go before close of entries, all we need now is one or two entries per day to make this a record breaking year by reaching our targeted number of 130 entries,” he said.

With the entertainment line up finally announced, it’s even better to hear entry is free for each night at the festival HQ from August 11-19.

Here to entertain with an assortment of sounds will be the Natural Culture, Jan Arns, The Cadillacs, Mason Rack Band, Churisma, Chris Boroff, Sun Salute and The Hillbilly Goats.

Airlie Beach Race Week is now in its 27th year and is considered the Whitsunday coast’s most significant of public events.

The colourful sails from 130 racing yachts will be seen from most locations along the Airlie Beach foreshore.

With eight action-packed nights of entertainment and daytime activities, such as wine tastings and a long lunch on the lawn, it’s clear to see why it’s so popular.
