MAGNETIC ISLAND RACE WEEK / 26 AUG 02 SEP 2020 / 9 DAYS / TRAINING & REGATTA

The race week is based on Magnetic Island in North Queensland. The first race shall start no earlier than 11:00 am on Friday 28th August 2020 from outside Nelly Bay. You can fly into Townsville airport and catch the ferry to Magnetic Island on the 26th August 2020. 

Your experience onboard Eve will start with two days training in the Cleveland Bay and nearby waters to give the crew a chance to familiarise themselves with the area, the boat and to settle into roles before the regatta. During the training days, you learn about race crew roles, practice the basics of sailing including main/mizzen/jib set, tack, gybe, reef, downwind pole, asymmetric/symmetric spinnakers packing, hoisting, trimming and mizzen staysail.

This regatta is open to everyone, including those with no previous experience. We usually have onboard 4 experienced sailors to provide you with expert advice and assistance, if required.
