10 Apr 2021 to 11 Apr 2021 Annual Event

SailFest is Newcastle’s celebration of sailing, and promotes life on the water to the community. With various race locations throughout Newcastle, it will be easy to find a space to watch the spectacle as it unfolds.

Whether you’re a young family looking for a fun weekend activity, or someone who enjoys walking the foreshore, SailFest has something to show you.

We have community try sailing in Carrington for children, teens and adults with face painting and food trucks. Throughout the Port of Newcastle, you will see races conducted near the Honeysuckle Hotel and the Queens Wharf Hotel. Featured in this, we have the Cock of the Harbour, Australia’s oldest sailing race.
