If the sun, tropical racing, posh digs, and sexy aussie girls wasn’t enough to get you jonesin’ to sail Hammo Island Race Week, the wildlife might. Incredible right-place-right-timing for the yacht Synergy as well as the Hammo TV crew that caught it; check the whale breach video here.

Hamilton Island Race Week should be on every sailor’s bucket list, especially with this year’s inclusion of both a multihull class and even a little one-design action with the 5-boat McConaghy 38 fleet shown above in this nice Andrea Francolini shot. It’s not for everyone; like Key West Race Week on our shores, Hammo is pricey and far from everywhere, but unlike Key West, HIRW lacks the dirty hookers, strip clubs, and drug dealers your crew might need…
Still not convinced? Check it out from up high, and if you have a few hours to kill, mosey on over to the HIRW “TV” guide for some frighteningly long videos of each day’s action. Title inspired by some side-splitting fun.
