Put the Australia Day weekend aside in January 2014 – the Festival of Sails is back!
The Festival of Sails is Victoria’s oldest ongoing sporting event, and the largest annual keel boat regatta in the Southern Hemisphere. The event annually attracts over 400 yachts and 4,500 competitors to compete, and the 2014 event will not disappoint with 15 different race series catering to the highest performance Grand Prix racers through to Trailable cruisers. In 2014, the Festival of Sails is privileged to be hosting the Melges 24 World Championship.
Geelong comes alive over the Australia Day Long Weekend as 100,000 people flock to the picturesque Geelong Waterfront to take part in the excitement. With stage and roving entertainers; live music; art and craft market stalls; a family friendly kids’ zone; gourmet food and wine; on and off-water come & try activities; fireworks; a dedicated marine trade and boating lifestyle exhibition and much more, the Festival of Sails offers something for all the family to enjoy!
