Race Week Countdown
There is a definite buzz in the air as Hamilton Island counts down to Audi Hamilton Island Race Week. The staging is being put into place on Front Street for the on-going entertainment and the Henri Lloyd fashion event. Extra golf buggies are appearing on Samson the barge. Yachts are starting to arrive in the marina, led of course by Wild Oats XI flying its big Wild Oats banner, and a surge in entries has taken the fleet above 160 boats.
We were hanging about on the beach in front of Sails Restaurant on the weekend comparing social calendars and arguing about whether the Moet & Chandon Lunch at qualia was a hotter ticket than the Sangria Beachside Party by Hugo’s and Wild Oats Wines. I know which will be wilder!
Hmm… I need to find myself a roving reporter…
