24 to 28 January
Festival of Sails
Geelong Waterfront, Royal Geelong Yacht Club, Australia
We can’t think of a better way to spend the last weekend of January than in Geelong, Victoria, where the largest keel boat regatta in the Southern Hemisphere will be held. On the waters of Port Phillip Bay, 400 yachts will race through Corio Bay, while on the shore, roving entertainers, live music, gourmet food and wine make up the waterfront festival.
Tickets: Waterfront festival is free; registration required for sailing regatta at Festival of Sails website
