Yacht Racing Regattas

Join our crew for some of the world’s most exciting yacht racing regattas! 

Crew on ‘Boomer‘ as she moves into yacht racing mode with her carbon sails, Code Zero and huge masthead spinnaker. You will love the thrill of the start, the adrenalin of the mark roundings and spinnaker launch, and the close competition near (or at) the front of the fleet. 

Then the party starts. Most yacht racing regattas include fantastic music, and we usually make some entertainment of our own. Stay on the boat for an all-inclusive sailing holiday. Everyone gets a meaningful role (you’re not just ballast) and we mix around some of the roles.

You can join yacht racing regattas in Melbourne, Blairgowrie, Geelong and the Whitsundays. 

Regattas are a deeply immersive experience, which allows you to leave your work and other pressures behind and really unwind. The competition, team work, physical effort and development of your skills make it hugely rewarding. 

Cock of the Bay and Petersville are more low-key and social, while the other races are competitive and a little more serious (on the water at least).

These are great value, so be sure to book early and secure your spot.
