The Queensland Government has recently declared numerous COVID-19 hotspots and yesterday announced the inclusion of Greater Sydney. In light of this announcement and despite our best intentions to host the event, our Race Management team who are so vital to the smooth and fair conduct of the sailing, are now unable to travel.
As such, we have made the tough decision to cancel Hamilton Island Race Week 2020.
The entire Hamilton Island community looks forward to hosting Race Week and this is the first time the regatta has been cancelled in its robust 37-year history. We would like to extend our deepest thanks to all of the sailors for their continued support, especially in what has been a remarkably trying year for all.
Full refunds for entry fees will be offered and processed within the coming weeks.
We look forward to being able to welcome back the fleet next year to enjoy a week of sailing and camaraderie at Hamilton Island Race Week 2021.
