The Audi Hamilton Island Race Week is one of Australia’s favorite yachting events on the international sailing calendar at the Whitsunday’s Island. Competitors, family and friends come together to enjoy the warm atmosphere around and unique companionship of the event’s special on-water and off-water carnival.
