Make 2013 the year you stretch your sea legs.
Once you taste it you never forget – how the wind feels as it whips through your hair; what it’s like to count time by number of swims not a ticking hand; the colour of the sun as it melts into the ocean at night.
Lifestyles of the rich and famous are available for hire every day – no experience necessary. In fact, you don’t even need a boat licence or a spiffy pair of deck shoes to sail in Queensland.
From the Great Barrier Reef to Gold Coast, Queensland has sailing covered. Rub shoulders with the glitterati at Hamilton Island Race Week, or join a crew for fun racing every Wednesday in Mooloolaba. Anchor offshore from Magnetic Island with nothing but the stars for company and the ocean’s lullaby to rock you to sleep. Play connect the dots with the 74 islands of the Whitsundays on a bareboat charter yacht. Dip a toe in with a sunset champagne sail, join a sailing flotilla, cheer on the yachties from dry land or sit back and let a skipper (or motor) do all the hard work for you.
There are a myriad of sailing experiences to take advantage of in Queensland. Gather your best stowaways and start planning your sailing holiday today.
