One of Australia’s most idyllic holiday destinations, Hamilton Island, has bid adieu to another sun-drenched, luxury-laden race week (the 32nd in race week history). The clear waters off the coast of the island hosted hundreds of yachts from Australia and around the world in the week-long racing event.
The onshore social activities – luxurious cocktail parties, long lunches by the Qualia pool, dinners prepared by celebrity chefs Guillaume Brahimi and Shannon Bennett – amplified the island’s full potential as a premium Australian island escape.
Audi Hamilton Island Race Week is the largest sailing regatta in the Southern Hemisphere and one of the most coveted events on both the sporting and social calendar.
Here is a wrap-up of the week that was.
