The lush, gorgeous Magnetic Island provides the backdrop to an exciting week of competitive sailing in one of Australia’s most beautiful regattas. Everyone from Olympians, Sydney Hobart winners and America’s Cup sailors come down to the crystal blue waters of Cleveland Bay, as well as a whole host of amateur enthusiasts as well. You don’t just have to be a pro sailor to enjoy this awesome festival of the sea either, as while the action out on the waves takes place there are live bands back on dry land, and once the sun goes down Townsville becomes one big sailing party!
