The Festival of Sails Organising Committee is thrilled to receive a positive response to our launch of the 2022 FOS Notice of Race on 22 September 2022. So far we have over 40 yachts entered and the Committee looks forward to seeing this number grow over the coming weeks.
This early positive response indicates that there is a real appetite from our sailing community to get back on the water, and we aim to bring you the best possible event we can in 2022. With COVID-19 still very front of mind, our team is working hard to develop plans to ensure our event is safe and compliant with all government restrictions and our state's road map to recovery. This means there will be some modifications to the event you are familiar with – particularly with the Waterfront Festival and shoreside components. We will keep you updated as these plans are finalized.
Please note, depending on how government restrictions evolve over the next few months, we may be required to limit entry numbers to ensure we remain compliant, so be sure to get your entries in early to avoid disappointment. We are offering skippers full refunds on entry fees if the event does not proceed due to COVID-19 restrictions.
And finally, we encourage those that can get vaccinated to do so. We don’t yet understand what requirements will be placed on public events in this regard, so please ensure you and your crew are proactive so we can welcome as many of you as possible back to Festival of Sails in 2022.
