We are excited to celebrate the major milestone of our 180th iconic Melbourne to Geelong Passage Race during the Festival of Sails 2023.
The Passage Race attracts boats and yachts of all classes, taking to the waters of Port Phillip Bay for the opening challenge of the four-day regatta, which will run from Thursday, January 26 to Sunday, January 29, 2023.
According to incoming Festival of Sails Chairman Paul Buchholz, the proudly Geelong-based event is a firm favourite with sailors from all over Australia, and he expects the opportunity to be part of the 180th anniversary celebrations will be even more of a reason to head to Corio Bay this January.
“You can’t deny the importance of any event hitting such a momentous milestone and we are incredibly proud of how the Festival of Sails showcases not only the best of competitive sailing, but also the very best of Geelong and our region,” Paul said.
“After more than two years of waves of Covid-related restrictions and interruptions to businesses and events, we think the 180th anniversary is a pretty good reason to celebrate, and we’ll be inviting everyone to join us!"
