Townsville Sprint Regatta

Event Details

Townsville Sailing Club
3 Mariners Drive, Breakwater Marina


Townsville's annual off-beach sprint regatta, normally held during the June long weekend, is a favourite among sailors around North Queensland. With the new September long weekend this year the regatta has moved - but the same enjoyable format will be there!

The 'Round Magnetic Island Marathon

Last year Townsville added a 'Round Magnetic Island Marathon to the regatta weekend held on the Monday holiday. This race is additonal to the Sprint Regatta and sailors can choose to either take part in both, or choose either one of the events. The 'Round Magnetic Island Marathon race is also open to yachts meeting cat 5 safety requirements. For off beach boats wishing to take part in the 'round magnetic island marathon a VYC yardstick of 110 or "faster" is required. Additionally, off beach boats will require a handheld VHF radio, orange smoke flare and a 20m tow rope.
