Rottnest Festival of Sail, on 1 & 2 April 2017, connects the sailing community with the Rottnest Foundation’s efforts to “preserve the essence of Rottnest”. The weekend of competitive racing, fun social activities and support for the Rottnest Foundation is a great way for yatchsmen and women to give support for the conservation efforts of the many volunteers in the Rottnest Foundation. Racing starts off Leighton Beach on Saturday morning and finishes in Thompson Bay, Rottnest on Saturday afternoon. Partying at Rottnest Hotel on Saturday night is followed up by more sailing and competitive racing on Sunday. Come and enjoy the sailing and the fun.
