5–7 April – Put the wind back in your sails with SailFest, an annual celebration of all things sailing.

Newcastle Harbour and the city’s pristine coastline will come alive with grand-prix TP52 yachts, offshore racers, high-speed skiffs and catamarans when the regatta returns from 5-7 April.

This year’s regatta proudly incorporates the prestigious Australian Yachting Championships. But don’t just leave it to the experts – families can also get involved with a community come-and-try sailing day for children aged six to twelve, leaving you to soak up the action from one of many vantage points around the foreshore.
