Hoisting Sponsorship for Airlie Beach Race Week 9:24am, Thu 10 May 2018

Airlie Beach Race Week is celebrating a milestone this year, with organisers staging the annual sailing regatta for the 30th time, attracting thousands of sailors, their families and sailing enthusiasts from the regional drive market and interstate.

The favored regatta wouldn’t be possible without sponsorship and the support of local businesses and Cumberland Charter Yachts is the first Whitsunday based company to come on board with silver sponsorship at the 30th anniversary of Airlie Beach Race Week.

Cumberland Charter Yachts General Manager Sharon McNally said their bareboat business had supported the event for many years through funding or on water participation, however as they too are proudly celebrating 30+ years of business, they’ve hoisted their level of support in sponsorship to mark the milestone event and encourage other local businesses to get involved.

“Sailing is synonymous with the Whitsundays and we want all walks of life to experience it, so we’re giving away six $1000 vouchers off a bareboat charter during the presentation nights at Race Week allowing anyone the chance to charter a boat around the idyllic Whitsundays,” Mrs McNally said.

Airlie Beach Race Week Principal Race Officer Ross Chisholm said this was a shining example of how local businesses could get on board and support a local event that in turn promoted the Whitsundays and tourism as a whole.

“Sponsorship is vital to Airlie Beach Race Week – we couldn’t possibly run the event without it and would like to thank Cumberland Charter Yachts for being the first local business to sponsor us at this level,” he said.

Cumberland Charter Yachts, is a multi award-winning company operating for 30 years from Abell Point Marina in the Whitsundays, offering bareboat holidays on sailing yachts, sailing catamarans and power catamarans across a fleet of 28 vessels.
