Season Of Sailing
VroomVroomVroom are proud to be sponsoring the Season of Sailing with Tourism Queensland.
Officially launched on the Gold Coast on the 20th March 2012 by Season of Sailing Ambassador Jessica Watson, the Season of Sailing allows everyone to enjoy a sailing holiday, from race competitors to first-timers.
The calendar of events encompasses some of the biggest race weeks in Australia including Hamilton Island Race Week, Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race and Magnetic Island Race Week. The sailing weeks are a fantastic excuse to get the friends and family together and jump on a boat, follow the action from your hotel balcony or just sail away and enjoy each others company.
Jessica Watson says “Sailing is something that everyone must try at least once in their lives and Queensland offers the best locations for learners all the way through to experienced yachtsmen to explore by boat.”
“I'm looking forward to participating in a number of this year's events and encourage Aussies to take
advantage of the stay and sail holiday packages and bring family and friends along for the ride.”
VroomVroomVroom can assist you with a rental car while you participate in the races, whether it be for a day or longer, so book with us today.
