The Festival of Sails is Australia’s largest keel boat regatta and makes a spectacular sight. It was first held in 1844, so it’s also the oldest sporting event in Victoria. More than 450 yachts take part. In line with the on-water action, the action off it is pretty hot, too. There will be live entertainment, roving performers, gourmet food and wine, and art and craft markets. Held at the Royal Geelong Yacht Club (RGYC) and along Geelong waterfront, the Festival of Sails attracts more than 100,000 visitors every year.
