Festival Of Sails

Get Shoreside Geelong

While competitors where battling it out on the water, thousands of people flocked to the Shoreside Festival, made possible by Geelong Connected Communities, to enjoy the outstanding program of activities for young and old.

From beach volleyball and children’s entertainment to waterski shows, live music, paddle boarding and Rex Gorell Land Rover’s four-wheel driving experience at the Terrapod, there was plenty to choose from. The flyboarders were a crowd favourite, attracting plenty of cheer with their daring hydro-board acrobatics.

The Discover Sailing sessions on Eastern Beach were very popular with kids wanting to try their skill in the boat, all inspired by the Festival of Sails’ world class sailing.

Today delivers even more excitement across four locations along the shore, with beach volleyball tournaments, three flyboarding shows, live performances from Children of the Sun and Taxiride, plenty of food trucks and market stalls as well as Geelong’s spectacular fireworks display on Australia Day Eve.
