A unique combination where man and machine match the elements on the water, while onshore, huge crowds celebrate at the family friendly Shoreside Festival.
First held in 1844, the Festival of Sails has consistently attracted both brilliant yachts and
a public keen to soak up the essence of the event.
The Royal Geelong Yacht Club takes great pride in its role as host of a Regatta whose
reputation as a global player expands each year. And 2014 holds no exceptions – strategically positioned to take in the outdoor party of Geelong’s Australia Day celebrations & capitalising on the Melbourne exodous to the coast; the desire for people to seek entertainment during summer; and the compulsion that finds hundreds of thousands of Australians attending sporting events during this time.
The calibre of a sailing audience is a marketing gift. Add to this 100,000+ shore based visitors over an eight day period, our communications media strategy, carefully considered event packaging and what we are about to present, is a sponsorship opportunity to parallel your vision, with ours.
