Hamilton Island review

The 38th Edition of Hamilton Island Race Week was another fantastic combination of sailing, onshore festivities, and of course the reunion with sailing friends and family in what would normally be the “off season” Down Under.

Final blast

A final blast to the Molle Islands and back in trade winds up to 22 knots closed out the 38th Hamilton Island Race Week and decided the trophy winners in divisions where the top placings were still up for grabs.

Final day fling

As the last day of competition dawns at Hamilton Island Race Week, an overcast and eerie Saturday, crews gathered on the marina to prepare for one last bite at the cherry at this year’s regatta.

Long Race and lasagne

For the 16 fortunate crew on the Phillip Neil skippered Drumfire, a 78-foot vision of splendour and timber luxury among the hundreds of newer builds, Hamilton Island Race Week is all about the food, not the sailing, argues boat chef Polly Bapteist.

Fleet foreman

Regatta Director, Denis Thompson is as firm a fixture on the Hamilton Island Race Week program as the racing, and this year, he is more eager than ever to head north for that potent blend of competitive sailing, sunshine and socialising.

Off and racing
