MESSAGE FROM THE PREMIER
Welcome to Geelong for the Viper World Championships and the Festival of Sails 2017 at the Royal Geelong Yacht Club.
We welcome competitors and spectators to one of Australia’s major sailing events and the largest keel boat regatta in the Southern Hemisphere.
Victoria is the sporting capital of Australia. The Viper World Championships and Festival of Sails are key dates on our world-class calendar of events and attract visitors from all over the world, strengthening our economy.
While in the Bellarine Peninsula you can marvel at the Australia Day fireworks hosted by the Royal Geelong Yacht Club, or stay for a glimpse of the prestigious Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race later this month.
I wish all participants the best of luck and all visitors a great week of top-class sailing.
The Hon Daniel Andrews MP
