City of Perth Festival of Sail
For the third year running, the City of Perth Festival of Sail is back with an exciting program of events.
The main attraction of the 2019 City of Perth Festival is the Warren Jones International Youth Regatta – which will be held from the Monday through to the Friday of the festival, sailed in Perth Waters, right outside Elizabeth Quay.
The start of the City of Perth Festival of Sail will see two days of free ‘try sailing’ for children and adults out of Elizabeth Quay. This experience was provided in September 2017 & 2018 at the Club Marine Perth International Boat Show and it was a huge success! The Festival of Sail can’t wait to give even more members of the general public and opportunity to try sailing!
On the Wednesday evening of the festival will be the Corporate Cup! Teams of the Festival of Sail sponsors and locally based businesses, accompanied by high-profile Swan River Sailing skippers, will battle it out on the water in a friendly race and then head back to the Rooftop by the Lucky Shag for some networking.
Thursday morning, Swan River Sailing and the Royal Perth Yacht Club will be running Women On Water which will see a group of up to 80 locally based business-women try the sport of sailing and the benefits that it has to offer.
On the final day of the City of Perth Festival of Sail, the morning will see an on-water display of kite foilers and other exciting small vessels in Perth Waters. A welcome addition to the Festival of Sail last year, Perth Kite Racing will be back to off their skills!
Before the Presentation Ceremony in Elizabeth Quay, the 2018 Warren Jones Gala Luncheon will be held at Royal Perth Yacht Club between 12 and 3pm. Guests will then board powerboats and head to Perth Waters to see the finals racing unfold.
